IES candela tables

Hello everyone, I am having a look at the new IES luminaire components. I was wondering whether it would be possible to input a different multiplier for each value in the candela table. In this way one can control the luminaire web shape through other grasshopper parameters (I.E: on a given spatial coordinate lighting will be omnidirectional, on another it will be a directional spotlight).

Hi Pietro,

You can do it indirectly. See attached. The idea is to split the IES file into text fragments, delete and replace the candela values that you want to modify and then join the file back into a text string.

Oh, that’s smart… I didn’t think about text replacement… Thank you!
