This is an odd question, but is it possible that the north rotation is affecting the advanced dynamic shade?
If I do an annual daylight simulation with 0 degree rotation, everything runs as expected. For example, “Illum levels no Dynamic SHD” is 22,338 lux and “illum levels dynamic SHD Group I” is 1385 lux. The shade is doing its job and reducing illuminance.
However, if I include a 45-degree north rotation, “illum levels no Dynamic SHD” is 22338 lux whereas “illum levels dynamic SHD Group I” is 22364 lux. I get the same pattern of results for any non-zero orientation.
I checked the files in the working directory and the *_state_2.rad file appears to be written correctly with the correct trans material. If anyone can help me figure out what’s causing this, it would be greatly appreciated.
I’m attaching the GH file for reference. DS with Shades Test.gh (587.7 KB)
