generative modeling for Rhino
if you have any ideas/problems or questions just let us know ;)
thanks for your reply.
i have sent you an email with an updated version which includes the custom-material component with an example file.
Please inform me if this suites your workflow so that we can include this component in the next release.
Hi Thomas, I will discuss with Florian too and let you know if I am missing something - but as far as i see from the tests I did on our models, the component fully fits the everything was needed. Simply great, thanks! Gr, Michela
I think your work could be useful for me.
I'm student and I try to do a daylight analysis with a parametric model of a room build with GH linked to Ecotect. Now I need to understand how can I modify with a "number slider" the properties (colour reflectance) of of my mesh esported by "exported mesh to ecotect".
Many thanks for your efforts and advice. I'm checking out all the stuff you guys prepared.
About the library: I was experimenting a while ago with daysim and radiance.
That was with an earlier version of Ecotect where I changed the default material library.
Once I installed Ecotect 2011 it kept the daysim library.
I was not aware of that.
We keep you guys updated with the results.
Hi Florian & Michela
thanks and looking forward to see your process.
I didn't used daysim much,what was your experience?....hope we ca soon finish our radiance plugin

I tried Daysim very shortly and it always had problems with my geometry. Therefore I tried Radiance directly from Ecotect using it as a geometry exporter. The materials I defined then directly within the radiance GUI window and did not use any exported ecotect material. During this process I also imported the Daysim material library into Ecotect which is supposedly more relevant for Radiance. But honestly the whole process is a bit of Jungle. I also had a short look at the Diva for Rhino plugin which I have to explore a bit more since it's also doing some "unforeseen" stuff.
You may have already covered this but does Geco and Mesh tools work with Rhino 4 or 5 with the most current version of Grasshopper?
Hi Matt, both are working as normal. We didn't get any bug reports yet and do not really expect one.
sry, i am having yet another request. I am working on a chancing facade element, which is adaptable to the indoors needs.
So is their away to change the material properties from a parameter inside grashhopper, instead of just picking in ecotect?
