generative modeling for Rhino
I am running some high resolution daylighting analysis. If the ecotect simulation takes more than 5 minutes or so, grasshopper stops paying attention to Ecotect and my simulation does not complete. Is there anyway to change grasshopper's settings to give it a longer attention span.
The Analysis does not stop (ecotect will finish your calculation)
This Timeout is a security reason and also let the user continue his/her work in RH
after it is finished just refresh the ecotectlink and request the final analysis
Thank you. I had set up all of my Geco components in a domino chain. I'll have to put in another boolean toggle to remind Grasshopper to get the results once the simulation is complete.
Sorry to follow up this response a little late but i'm having the same problem recently while running simulation with iteration by Galapagos, once the Timeout problem occurred the results could no more feed to other conponents even if it's possible to retrieve the results manually.
For this I'm really desperate to ask are there any possibility to turn of this Timeout so to last through the whole simulation?
For the next version we will include a override for that
hope this helps,
dear [ U To ],
i have encountered a problem in importing an analysis grid from ecotect into grasshopper:
the resulting mapped mesh shows different values from the ecotect one.
i tried to change the mesh UV subdivision and i obtain one "acceptable" result but it seems that the U and the V are flipped!
attached are some screen shots, the last one shows the "acceptable" result
thank you in advance
without file it is really not possible to help you
here's the ecotect, rhino and ghx files,
thank you very much!
Hi [ U To ],
I have a Rhino file with several buildings modelled and just one mesh I'd like to analyze. I'm also trying to use galpagos to minimize the radition on this specific mesh. Whenever the calculations run, they run through the mesh and the other buildings as well, which makes it a bit slower. Is there a way to calculate the radiation just on this mesh but keep the buildings so they affect the final result?
sure it is. You have to use two exportmeshcomponents (or just one). after exporting the first deselect it and export the second and set the component to only change selected.
Hey, Really cool stuff!
I encountered a little problem while using geco today. It was not giving me the same result as ecotect (calculations done under same parameters).
So I was working with a dish shaped object. When I point surf normal outward, geco worked "fine". However, when I have the normal pointing in,(towards the center of the dish, which is what I needed) the result was a little wired and does not look like ecotect's result at all.
