Honeybee Raytracing phase takes much time for simple grid

Hi all,

May I know why my Daylight Factor simulation takes quite some time for a simple rectangular grid?

It has been quite some time since I use honeybee (legacy version) and this is my first time using the latest version. Usually, it does not take this long for a simple analysis. Although the results came out fine.

It is because of my PC or an installation error?

Thank you, guys

It’s probably worth it for you to invest some time in learning about Radiance Parameters. They are wholly responsible for how quick the ray tracing runs and how accurate the results are.

For example, I can get your simple example to run in 11 seconds if I want:

Thank you so much, Chris!

I used a legacy version of honeybee and ladybug before and always used rad parameters. Since this is the first time I use the updated honeybee, there are quite a lot of changes happening and in the midst of confusion I forgot to use that :man_facepalming:
It is working as usual now,

Thanks again
