I am apologizing for being rude, but can anybody show me the way I can use this plugin to calculate solar radiation on my curved surface? Is there a video, or tutorial?

Thank you.

Site was down briefly this weekend, I have re-linked the current assembly. A revised grasshopper assembly with new tools needs beta testing, will release soon.

Hi Jeff,

Thanks again for your great plugin!

I have plugged a mesh to the solver but got a red component.

Am I missing an input?

Many thanks,
