Would you please help and guide me that how can I convert TexPad format to .pts format to analysis my project in Daysim. I have drawn sensor point in Sketch up and have transformed to TexPad.
Another my problem is that in my project which is consisted from 2 Floor and in second floor my sensor point height is related to origin is more than 0.85 I was wondering if you could help me, by letting me it is ok or not. Sincerely
I am interested in using radiance (lighting simulation) in order to calculate DA and UDI values for schools.
I would like to know if radiance (lighting simulation) can calculate the DA and UDI values only for a specified occupied period of a school year: Monday to Friday from 08:30 to 16:00 (at hourly intervals) with lunch break, half term breaks and holiday breaks etc.
I am assuming that it only calculates the daylight levels on a specific day of each month and then averaging the values to give an overall yearly value.
I have recently discovered your plug-in, and have been working my way through the tutorial provided. However when I select to export my model for use within Daysim the export (header) files are not created in the export directory selected.
Can you offer any guidance as to how I can overcome this or suggest where I may have gone wrong if this is a common issue?
I have installed Daysim on Windows 7.For some reason when running ladybug and Honeybee Simulation in grasshopper I get error from Honeybee Run_Daylight_Simulation: Can´t find the results for the study.
Have tried to install Daysim 4.0 yet the file does not even open.
I have installed the DAYSIM as a plugin in Ecotect software. I would like to calculate the Annual Daylight Glare Probability Profile but I cannot click on it (it is disable and I cannot select it). Do you know how to solve this problem?
Below the DGP, it is written that a view file is specified under building and I have set a view (i.e. top) but it doesn't change.
I would be more than grateful if you can give me a solution how to calculate DGP.
Daylight Factor is defined as the following in Daysim tutorial : "It is defined as the ratio of the indoor illuminance at a point of interest to the outdoor horizontal illuminance under the overcast CIE sky"
Above, Where can I find 'the outdoor horizontal illuminance' ?
I then placed a light sensor inside the building, and the simulation.
After the DF on indoor sensor is calculated, I found hourly the indoor illuminance(.ill) in the file 'res', but not a horizontal outdoor illumination was used to calculate DF.
I'd appreciate if you help me. thank you.
