Honeybee Workshop Part 2/7 - problem: warning - non-planar vertex for polygon

Hey guys,
Trying to learn Honeybee from this tutorial:

But I have a problem.

I should get this:

But I have sth like this:

And the problem is:

  1. rpict: warning - non-planar vertex for polygon “230ba76672f44a149afe_65_0”

I don’t know what I did wrong. I went step by step with the tutorial.
Would be glad for any help! :slight_smile:

So… I have the impression that I discovered what is my problem. Mentioned in the tutorial, the complexity of the context and the mess in defining surfaces. So now I have to somehow sort out…

Do anyone know the simpliest way to do that?


that rpict warning is not fatal. Run a visualization of your scene via HBEE, and if it looks ok on screen, all should be well. In practice, it is very hard to fix all rpict errors a simulation spits out. In 99.9% of cases it does not mess up your results.
