Hi all,

10 - Complex Building Geometry in Honeybee Part2 (1).gh (607 KB)

Try to reinsert those red components. They changed the number of input/outputs or their names.

Thank you Abraham. It worked fine after reinserting.but I got a following error message in run energy simulation. and no idf and csv file is created.

  1. Solution exception:global name ‘HBGenerators_’ is not defined

Reinsert this one too!!

I see that yours is old version.

Thank you Abraham. I have reinserted this one too. I got the Idf file but I got some simulation error.I didn’t get any CSV file.

  1. The simulation has failed because of this fatal error:
    ** Fatal ** IP: Errors occurred on processing IDF file. Preceding condition(s) cause termination.

  2. The simulation has not run correctly because of this severe error:
    ** Severe ** IP: IDF line~260 Invalid Number in Numeric Field#1 (Lower Limit Value), value=SCHEDULETYPELIMITS, in SCHEDULETYPELIMITS=ANY NUMBER

  3. The simulation has not run correctly because of this severe error:
    ** Severe ** IP: IDF line~162 Invalid Number in Numeric Field#1 (Lower Limit Value), value=SCHEDULETYPELIMITS, in SCHEDULETYPELIMITS=ANY NUMBER

Try to do this:

Right mouse click. Choose “recompute”.

There is a chance that the memory remembers old definitions and becouse of this there are missing or wrong definitions.

Thank you Abraham. but this time it did not work.I will try it again and let you know. thanks again.

This one happened to me too today.

Close GH and Rhino and start again. Worked for me.
