Import IDF into Honeybee with Blind & Shading devices

Hi mostapha & Chris,

Thank you very much for grate development team work of Ladybug, Honeybee and also Butterfly!

I have a question about import IDF file with shading.

How can I import IDF files with Blind geometry and blind control create from DesignBuilder (Energyplus 8.1) or create with honeybee?

when I try import IDF file into honeybee I’m facing the following warning with HB_Import_IdF component :

  1. Currently Honeybee doesn’t support importing shading controls!
    Sorry and it will be added soon!

Does have another way for that?

Thanks in advance.


Hi Mohammad, Have you seen this example on Hydra.
