Hi, I’m doing a article about how to use Rhino, Grasshopper, Ladybug and Honeybee to calculate energy efficiency in comercial buildings.
I’m not creating the wheel, I’ve just seen a lot of video tutorials (Chris Mackey and Mostapha Sadeghipour, your videos were more than important, I really love it, thanks for that) and writing an method step-by-step to be followed.
Here in Brazil there aren’t almost nothing published about it and I think it must be introduced in Architecture’s Schools and events, to brazilian students and professionals.
Let’s talk about my doubt.
I’ve choose a building. The building isn’t a cube that matches with the “standard” of Energy Plus.
I can’t use “Ratio” of glazing, cause I have planes with windows and planes 100% glazed.
I’ve used the tool that adjust windows in the planes, but with this I’d ignore the 100% glazed pla.
Take a look of this photos, the real building, my building modeled in Rhino and if you could help me, I would really thankful.

I want to achieve really close values of energy consumption of the building, so, my geometry in honeybee must be similar to the real building and I don’t know how to add this 100% glazed planes with the other planes that have windows, for each pavement. It’s possible? How?
I’m sending the files attached.
