So, when I apply ladybug to a very simple/continuous form/surface I’m able to get good results but now I’m trying to apply it to a more complicated model and I’m having trouble simplifying the mesh enough for ladybug to function correctly, otherwise I just get a bunch of scattered test points and results (See attached images). So I guess I’m trying to simplify the model’s mesh so that the test points are applied uniformly to generate more accurate results.
Any suggestions would be great! Thanks.
Hi Justin,
I guess you are using meshes (and not breps) for analysis. In this case Ladybug assumes you already taken care of face sizes so it doesn’t regenerate the mesh. The scattered points are based on your input mesh. This feature let the user use any custom grid that fits their design.
There are two solutions for this:

Convert test meshes to brep, and use them for the analysis. Brep input will be meshed based on your input for grid size. You don’t need to do it for context, just for what you connect to input geometry.

Generate the appropriate mesh yourself using any of the other Grasshopper plugins.
Hope it helps,
Mostapha
great, thanks for the reply.
