Radiation Calla Lilies

Hi Everyone,

New to Ladybug + Honeybee. Was hoping to get some info to better understand what radiation calla lilies represent. I understand that they show radiation for the specified period of time and I understand the gradient. But what do the peaks and valleys represent in 3D? Why is there a hole in the middle? What relation does it have to its circular form?

Thanks for all your help!


Hi Scott,

Look at the hint of the component. I’m sure you’ll get a better idea what is shown in the plot.

Basically it shows all possible directions and orientations and the amount of radiation you get on them. Is cool!!


Thanks Abraham!
