I’m trying to work with Radiance Trans Material but I’m having little trouble understading how it works.
I’ve read the document “‘Trans Materials –Modeling and Specifying a Next Generation” by David Mead (http://radiance-online.org/community/workshops/2010-freiburg/PDF/Da…). It was very helpful but still I’m not confident with this kind of material.
I’ll explain shortly my design.
I’m trying to bring natural light deeper into a generic building. To do so, I want to use a system in which a mirror outside the facade directs the sunlight through a horizontal shaft composed of mirrors on the upper part and on the sides with a “membrane” on the lower side defined as a “Trans Material”.
My goal is to obtain an effect like the one showed in the attached photo. It’s a skylight make of opaque semi-transparent plastic.
Does anyone know any good parameter to simulate that?
I’m attaching also a little section and the gh file.
Thanks everybody for your help.
