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 everyone, I have existing radiance files, radiance material files, and points files and would like to run them using radiance through honeybee. However if I use the following component shown in the image, I need to have honeybee objects. How…Continue

HI,I am skeptical about the results of the total solar transmittance through the glazing, the results between HB zones with/without context is very small which makes me question, especially that the shading elements I am using LB shading design…Continue

I think I'm not understanding something about creating zones from surfaces. Aside from labeling my surfaces with duplicate names, I have errors at intersections. There are roughly 15 of these type of errors:When I made my surfaces, I created a…Continue

Hi Mostapha, Chris and group members,Is it possible to simplify the setting process of construction u-value with a series of u-value numbers rather than a range of detailed settings in order to accelerate the process of conceptual design…Continue

Hi! Does anyone have an idea why I get this result when baking with the ReColorMesh component? The meshes look fine when previewing in Grasshopper, but I only get these lines when baking them (using the bakeIt option) – both the meshes and the…Continue

Hi Anton Szilasi, Mostapha, Chris and group members,Is it not a simple linear formula between solar energy production and energy reduction?I calculated a simple box with westGlz 0.8 and eastGlz 0.8, the result showed that the netpurchasedelect was…Continue
