I’ve been trying to initiate a successful script for radiation analysis using ladybug on Mac OS.
The gencumulativeskymtx component is giving me errors.
I installed Radiance, and an error appeared but I looked it up and placed the gendaymtx.ete file in the path folder, which solved this error.
Another error appeared which says "1. Solution exception:Could not find file “/Users/yafim/ladybug\AMSTERDAM_NLD_1990\AMSTERDAM_NLD_1990_dif_1.mtx”.
I’ve looked here but couldn’t figure out a proper solution from it.
This is a file path issue I think, but the problem is that I am on a network server, so my path isn’t simply C:\Ladybug but \users\yafim\ladybug.
In GH the gencumulativeskymtx component the readMe! output is
"0. Current working directory is set to: /Users/yafim/ladybug\AMSTERDAM_NLD_1990
1. Runtime error (FileNotFoundException): Could not find file “/Users/yafim/ladybug\AMSTERDAM_NLD_1990\AMSTERDAM_NLD_1990_dif_1.mtx”.
I tried changing manually the path by inputting a panel with “/Users/yafim/ladybug” into the workingDir_ node of the component to try and set it but it didn’t have an effect on the default path.
I’m not sure if these components rely on other installations such as OpenStudio or Daysim or EnergyPlus. Should I install any of these?
Any suggestions as to solving this properly?
