I’m currently road-testing Rhino, Grasshopper and Honeybee for daylighting analysis. I’ve been using Ecotect as a front end for Radiance for years – but Ecotect isn’t ageing well and it is time to move on… I am mostly preparing analysis for planning applications in accordance with BRE guidelines in the UK. I’ve some, hopefully simple, questions for those of you who know Honeybee well and I’d really appreciate your feedback / help. I’m aware some of these queries are general Grasshopper rather than Honeybee questions.
I’ve attached my first simple model and grasshopper script – the culmination of a week of learning…
In the first instance, I want to complete VSC analysis of windows in a model and I need to export the results for inclusion in a report. I need to be able to:
I’m sure this will be the first of many questions – but I really appreciate your help.
There are countless excel export/import components out there in the GH community, though. If you want to get very advanced with working between the Excel and GH, David Man’s open source Bumblebee is an awesome plugin made by an awesome man:
This is spectacularly helpful, thank you both. One observation - which may be obvious to everyone else, the numbering / ID tag of the windows follows the order that the geometry is selected when added to the BREP, rather than the order that the geometry was created.
I’m not sure that this is an issue - indeed it provides maximum flexibility on the order of objects - but it might be an issue for some.
