I’ve been playing around with the shading designer but am getting some weird results. I’ve been tasked with finding the ‘optimum’ shading (Horizontal or Vertical) for a building in Sydney for the various aspects (N/E/S/W). What is the best way to achieve this with Ladybug?
Is it best to create an analysis period for the entire year or only summer solstice? I used 21 Dec (summer solstice) and feed the sun vectors into the shading designer component, the resultant geometry is pretty extreme (refer below) and doesn’t respect the normal of the surface or the scale of the building (i.e. no max depth). Alternatively, if I feed in depth instead, it seems to just generate shading automatically but no optimisation is happening? How do you test the fitness of shading - with the comfort shading benefit component? Or do I need to use Galapagos or something like that?
