Ladybug plugins and Rhino 7 compatibility


I have installed Rhino 7 along with Ladybug. I have been running scripts for daylight analysis that were made while also running Rhino 6. The scripts are causing inconsistent results each time it runs with rhino 7. Is there any known issues or bugs that might cause this to happen when using Rhino 7 but not Rhino 6?
I have the following versions installed:
“Ladybug” : “2020.”,

“Honeybee” : “2020.”,

“Dragonfly” : “2018.”,

“Template” : “2018.”,

“OpenStudio” : “2.9.1”,

“OSJSONFile” : “2015.”,

“THERM” : “7.6.0”

The Legacy plugins are only fully compatible with Rhino 5 and Rhino 6. Switch to the latest LBT plugin if you need something that is fully compatible with Rhino 7.

Hi Chris, I have similar problems but I’m not sure there are any PV output calculating components in the latest Ladybug components. Which plugin (if not the latest Ladybug release) would you recommend to calculate?

As I know ther are no PV related componets in Ladybug tools Version 1.5.0 . But ladybug legacy Version 0.0.69 and Honeybee Version 0.0.66 have some PV simulation components.

Thanks @minggangyin , I made a script out of them which worked but unfortunately it seems incompatible with Rhino 7. It hangs for hours even though it showed results before. (and no components show a problem)

Please check the Version of Rhino7. Ladybug 0.0.69 and honeybee 0.0.66 worked fine with Rhino 7 SR 16.
