Radiation analysis not working - access denied

I am getting the following error when I try to run a radiation analysis.

Any ideas anyone?


Try to recreate the sky file in a different folder. The error happens since Honeybee is trying to modify the sky file for Radiation analysis. You have it created under Rhino folder and you don’t have permission to modify it.

I have changed working dir but I am still having this issue.

You’re using the wrong components.

Hi Mostapha and Anton,

I am curious. Is it difficult to do a ghenv.Component.AddRuntimeMessage type thing if we know what classes to anticipate as inputs and instances of those classes aren’t provided as inputs? I think grasshopper already does it for basic type like int,str etc. I was wondering if it is possible to do so for custom classes as well.


Hi Sarith, It’s possible and have been already implemented to honeybeex. To be able to check input types we need to pass objects between the components and not strings.
