WIP V1.5 Acoustic Shoot

acoustic_shoot is a def that imitate acoustical raytracing. It used a VB def from Peter VanHage but differ in it's parameters and now using Ladybug raytracing. You can have the final points of a ray at a precise time (in ms). You can choose the numbers of rays, etc....

V1.5 WIP (23/11/2016)


Change :

  • Use ladybug raytracing
  • basic fonction is working
  • many bugs to correct (attenuation/colorize/color)

V1.4 (02/09/2012)


Change :

  • you can add something like an attenuation coefficient to "walls"
  • print the number of rebound or a calculated value
  • colorize follow one of thoses values

nb : calculated values are not real physical values but a way to know what kind of attenuation a ray would have

nb : skip 1.2 version because it's a great improve (odd numbers are minor revisions)

nb : next version would be more optic oriented




Change :

  • added a toggle to show (or not) wire
  • color changing
  • english text everywhere

V1.0(initial version-26/01/2012)

hi everyone, as Seth Lamberton notice, this def can be used for optic reasons so maybe i should change the group and def name....(and make it less "acoustic") what everyone think?Continue

This part of the script is not yet working like what it use to be. For now just the basic raytracing is working thanks to ladybug

Hi Guillaume,

I can't figure out how to make the reflection coefficient of V1.5 works. If I change the number it does not influence the reverberation time. Do you know what I have to change?

Dear Guillaume:

I love your gh file and I am focus on noise reduction techniques in facade, so I think your gh file is a very good example for me to design facade.

But actually I cannot open your gh file successfully, one VB component always going wrong and I check the content of this component, I think it is relative to unit in rhino, but I cannot solve this problem.The two input are empty and the output is null.

So please tell me how to solve this problem, thanks!!!!!
