Shading surface for Daylight Analysis


How can I add the custom shading surface for daylight analysis (like Vertical fins)? If I add it as a honeybee surface, it is throwing error as it needs to be a closed brep. Which component will work well for this?

Thank you,

Daylight analysis does not require closed breps. You should be able to use Honeybee_Surface. Please share a file if you can.

Hello @devang

i have attached the file and I have highlighted it in red. (923.7 KB)

Thank you,

Daylight simulation works without any errors at my end.

This does not affect daylight studies

Thank you, Yes, it is running why is the decomposeByType component throwing error? I assumed it was broken because of it.

This doesn’t concern your daylight analysis. However, I would recommend you run an imagebased simulation to see if everything is being exported to radiance right
