What is Ladybug?
Ladybug is an open source environmental plugin for Grasshopper3D that helps architects and engineers create an environmentally-conscious architectural design. Ladybug imports standard EnergyPlus Weather files (.EPW) into Grasshopper and provides a variety of 3D interactive graphics to support the decision-making process during the initial stages of design.
What is Honeybee?
Honeybee connects Grasshopper3D to EnergyPlus, Radiance, Daysim and OpenStudio for building energy and daylighting simulation.The Honeybee project intends to make many of the features of these simulation tools available in a parametric way.

Hi Thank you for your great program. I was wondering how to calculate the ASE with honeybee. I can get the grid based percentage of time over 1000 lux over the year but this is not exactly what ASE is, do you have any suggestions how it can be…Continue

Hi Mostapha and Chris,I am running into a problem and can't find a solution.I think it’s a little bug in modeling.I have a box inside another box(as you see in the picture) . I want to solve the adjacencies to run an EP simulation . if the inside…Continue
