Light radiance material?

Hi all,

Does someone know if it is possible to include electrical light in a glare simulation?

I checked but did not find any Honeybee component to create a light or glow material.

Thanks in advance!


Hi Alejandro,

Sorry for the late reply. The first solution is to use an IES file to create the electrical light in your scene. Honeybee has an IES>HB component for that. You can check this discussion for more information.

Moreover Honeybee is able to parse standard radiance materials as far as they don’t have modifier so you can just type the material string and connect it to a surface and it should just work fine. Here is an example: (431 KB)

Thank you for your answer Mostapha! As always, very useful.
