generative modeling for Rhino
Ecotect is known for having glitches.
If you can - post your definition file.
please post defintion and 3dm.file
maybe the face normals are oriented to the wrong direction?
Hi both, really great job! I am enjoying it very much.
One question about a problem i have in updating the numeric outputs.
I am having problems in automatically updating the Ecotect's calculations results when changing the geometry's paramers. The geometry is correctly imported back in Ecotec after changing the parameters. Somehow, it looks like calculations are also re-running properly. But instead numeric outputs remain the same. Numeric outputs do not change in Ecotect nor in the object request Geco components. (This happens even though according to the geometry's variations they should be really different: if I restart manually the entire resolution, setting it by hand to true again, then the values update). Any clou about what I am doing wrong? Any help?
The problem above creates me troubles when connecting Geco's numeric outputs (such as DF or insolation values) to the Galapagos loops, since the optimization of course cannot find ways to converge the results (since of course all individuals have equal performance).
Thanks a lot for helping! And again congrats and thanks for the great job!
Great to hear that you enjoy our tool and to hear you again after zürich!
how is everything going?
Could you please post a screen-capture of your definition or send it to us via email so that we can take a closer look on it.... in our studies it is working fine and as expected
hear you soon
also greetings from Ursula
here the file
... found the mistakes ;) ...
1) solar radiation
maybe it is a little bit confusing, but for the ObjectRequest you have to support interval of indices (e.g. 0 to 10) not the index numbers
as you recognized the geometry of the lamellas accumulates...
the export component must be set to 1 = delete selected objects in ecotect
important: to avoid that other geometry than the lamellas are deleted, deselect all geometry manually in Ecotect or deselect "all" = select.none with the "Lua-component" in GH.
see attached file :)
I see, quite clear now - great, thanks!!
Merry Christmas to you both! Michela
I have encountered a problem that I totally don't understand. I have a mesh that is divided and analysed for radiation using Geco & Ecotect. Everything works fine, as long as the mesh has less than 1000 faces. For 1000 and more faces Geco says Null under Value and RGB parameter as well. By any chance would you have an idea?
Otherwise I am able to export the Values data directly from Ecotect, but the RGB data for faces?, is it possible as well?
Thanks for great work
