I have a question. I found this code for the ladybug tool which shows how to do light simulation given one room created on python. My problem is that I have a layout and 3 rooms as shown in the picture, so I want to modify this code so that I put the windows on the layout and I conduct the light simulation for the three rooms (1,2,3). However, the given code will not work because the windows are not located only in the rooms so I want to consider that each room has walls and a window and that the light is passed through the windows to the rooms. what changes to the codes are needed to tailor it to my problem? Note that this layout I have is also generated using python.
Can any one help me modify this code to account for this situation?
Thanks so much!
