generative modeling for Rhino
after 5 minutes geco has a programmed timeout that you can work on with different stuff in rhino . In further releases we will have a manual input for that.
To establish the link to ectoect again just toggle the ecolink.
After that you can recaive the gradient mesh again.
Thank you. Well, can you articulate what exactly is the ecolink? Is it the boolean triggle in export to ecotect function? Also, after this operation, does it need to be recalculate in ecotect again? Sorry for these troubling questions. But it takes hours for the calculation, I don't wanna another sad day. hha
ecolink = the first component you need to establish linkage
but it is important to not toggle, you have to just reconnect the wire!!
I follow your instruction. I believe that ecolink is the component which opens ecotect software when toggling. I didn't swith the toggle, instead, I reconnect the wire from the toggle to the input of ecolink component. But Nothing happens... still can not importing calculated gradient pattern back to rhino file.
you have to toggle the EcoObjectRequest to get the data.
maybe you should read the manual (located start/gecoGH/addon)
Thanks... it's done.. haha thank you very much.
you are welcome
im having the same issue. how did you manage to solve it?
1. After ecotect's calculation, you plug out the wire which connect E(solar radiant component) and D(the one after)
2. Make a toggle, connect it to D, and shift to true.
Then you will see the mesh with vertex color.
Thanks. will do it!
I am not sure where this issue resides or if it is something already reported. It is an annoying behavior. If I do a ecoMeshExport to get geometry to Ecotect (something I do all of the time) and then I run an analysis IN ecotect, I can only visualize the first set of analysis results. For example, lets say I do a Natural Light Level Analysis over an analysis grid (after I do ecoMeshExport from Geco). When Ecotect is finished, it automatically shows me the Daylight Factor in the Analysis Grid Settings. If I want to change to 'Daylighting Level' or 'Internally Reflected,' ecotect does not allow it. If I save the file, close ecotect, and reopen the file, the analysis results are there and I CAN change the analysis data. Other things happen to, for example, I cannot turn on the contours, etc. Can you duplicate this behavior?
I can work around it by saving the file as ecotect right after I send it from Geco, and restarting ecotect.
Let me know if you have any ideas.
