Honeybee-Sloped Facade Glazing

Hi everyone,

I am currently working on a project to execute illumination analysis for an office unit. But i have a problem to define glazing on sloped surface.

To explain better, I have compared surfaces that i am dealing with. I am working on a sloping glazing facade. I guess due to complex geometry, energyplus does not recognize surface as a glazing surface, though it represents as wall. I am using Honeybee plug-in to execute daylight analysis.

Could someone help me to solve it, or you can offer an alternative solution.

In attached files, you can see screen shots of units, in addition, i added gh. file of model.

@orcunkoral Sorry, I cannot see the gh file.Please upload it.

As a new user, I could not upload any attachment. Could you share me with your mail that I can send you.

By the way, thank you.

@orcunkoral You can share your file using dropbox or google drive.

Great idea:

Your 3rd model is double curved geometry. As far as I know, Honeybee_addHBGlz and Honeybee_Glazing based on ratio are not suitable for this case. Please simplicity your geometry or make it as planar surface.

You are absolutely right about it. But i need to execute the illumination analysis with this surface. So planar curve does not accepted for this case.

To simplify, you mean that maybe instead of a double curved geometry, maybe i can transform to multiple planar surface? What do you suggest about that?

@orcunkoral multiple planar surface is a good solution.
