Request for latest Honeybee (energy simulation components) and GrizzlyBear

Hi Mostapha,

It is really great to know that the full suite of components for energy simulation for Honeybee and GrizzlyBear is released at the AEC Tech Symposium and Hackathon!

Regarding this, I have two questions:

  1.  I can't find the installation files in the "food4rhino" website, in which Version 0.0.57 and 0.0.51 are still the latest version released on April 8th, 2014.
             I was wondering if you could help me to get these full suite of components - especially including GrizzlyBear.
  2.  In addition, I have some questions regarding the model exchange between Rhino/Grasshopper and Designbuilder ([](, which is a commonly used software tool for checking building energy and thermal comfort and only accepts gbXML format file. I am quite interested in how GH models interoperate with the gbXML format. In order to achieve this, I have tried the GeometryGym gbXML components ([](, but I found that some functions of these components were still not implemented yet. So my question is:
             Will the "GrizzlyBear" plug-in be suitable for the model exchange between Rhino/Grasshopper and Designbuilder as it is?

Again, I would really appreciate it if you kindly offer me these energy simulation components and GrizzlyBear, so that I could test the possibility of coupling GH models and Designbuilder. You can reach me at

Thank you very much in advance!

Best regards,


Hi Ding, I replied to your email with more details but for anyone who may have similar questions you can download the latest components from github page. At the time we don’t have enough example files but components are working fine.
