algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Hi everybody!
I'm Martina, from São Paulo, Brazil.
I'm  starting now to learn about how to use Grasshopper and Rhino.
Especially now I'm trying to do a Sun Path according this video:
 
However,  shadow isn't appearing in my case.
I am in Diva Sun Path View but there is no shadow (screen shot).
In addition I would like to introduce Location by latitude and longitude, but do not know where I should introduce the values.
Somebody could you help me?
Really Thanks,
Martina

Hi Martina,

I found the error..you just need to delete the Brep component and drug directly the output from the shadow component into the display..I tried into the exmple file too that you find attached and it works fine now

please find attached the grh files(wetransfer)

cheers

sorry Martina but I can't find attached your 3dm and grh files..I can see only a screenshot :)

Of course, Ernesto!

I posted (grh and 3md...cause my geometry is not visible in the grh)...

The LadyBug says that error is in the "Data Conversion failed from Mesh to Curve".

It depends of geometry?Too complex buildings?

I tried with a more simple model (just one building) and I have the same problem.

What can I do?

Thanks for you interest!

Thanks you Ernesto!

From your link, I've understood that maybe the file example "Vector Based Shadow Study"  ( https://urly.it/21yng ) was good for my purpose. So, I implemented the same procedure for my urban domain but unfortunately I can not see the shadows on the ground (look at the two red components in the screenshot). The same thing happens when I run the file exemple on my computer, shadows are not visible because they are not projected. Do you have another precious advice on this argument?

Best,

Martina

Hi Ernest!

I am very grateful for your reply, I solved the problems above and I have already done various Ladybug tutorial, as you suggested:)

However, I still have not been able to solve a fundamental issue: how to calculate the shaded surface area (numerically and not just graphically), even when more shadows intersect each other?

I did find tutorials not enough clear about it. Could you give me some suggestion on this topic?

Really thanks,

Martina

Hi Martina!

I really suggest you to have a look to this plug-in:

http://www.grasshopper3d.com/group/ladybug

there are lots of tutorials;

for the geo-localization there is a fabulous map that collects all the EPW file at http://www.ladybug.tools/epwmap/

Hope it helps

Ern
