I want to simulate a prismatic material as a glazing for a facade. My question is how can I recognize that the direction of the material’s grooves is horizontal or vertical?
I don’t know enough about that type of material. You might get a better answer on the Radiance forum. Also posting a sample will help to understand what are you exactly trying to do and what do you mean by horizontal versus vertical in this case.
thank you for the response.
I have the BSDF file (XML) of a prismatic glazing with vertical grooves like below.
In Honeybee+ daylight simulation, I assigned this XML file as the glazing material but do not know how it considered the direction of the grooves.
Hi @Salamati , the BSDF file should already contain all the information of reflection and transmission, both back and front, of your prismatic glass in function of the solar incidence.
