algorithmic modeling for Rhino

I will be teaching a 4 hour workshop about using Ladybug for environmental design/analysis this Sunday (March 30, 2014) 1pm - 5pm EST/EDT.

The workshop will be streamed live. You won’t be able to ask questions during the workshop but I will be using Ladybug example files which you can download from the Ladybug group page so you can follow along with the workshop. You can send me your questions later.

The workshop is a part of the Environmental Design Studio for the students of the Master in Environmental Building Design (MEBD) program at PennDesign.

Tentative outline:

  • Getting Started: (epw file, 3d charts, conditional statements)

  • Wind analysis: (windrose, conditional statement > potential for natural ventilation)

  • Sky + Radiation: (radiation rose, sky dome)

  • Sunpath + Shading design: (hourly data overlay, conditional statement)

  • Radiation, Sunlight hours analysis (roof design, optimum orientation)

In case we have time we will also cover one example about:

  • Parametric optimization

To watch the workshop please register below:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. Thanks to Thornton Tomasetti for making streaming the workshop possible.


PS. Sorry for the short notice. Please feel free to forward this to anyone of interest. There will be a similar workshop next Sunday (April 6th) at the same time on Honeybee for daylighting simulation. I will send the registration link early next week. Stay tuned!

Hi Mostapha
good news
i registered


There are several members of our team that would like to attend your webinar but are unavailable on Sunday. Is it possible to get a recording of your presentation so they can follow along at another time?

Hi Leland, I personally love to have the recording uploaded afterward however I can't make the final decision about this. I will keep you posted.

Great do... I have time right 19:00 - 23:00 in Berlin time?

Because the daylight saving you should shift this with an hour. 1 pm should be 6 pm in Brelin. Right now it is 10:07 here and 3:07 in Berlin based on google. Does GOTOMeeting give you the wrong time without considering daylight saving?

hmm is almost 6pm here  and nothing seems to start..I guess will start in 1 hr...

Same over here, 19:00hs it is I guess

We will start in half an hour.

I hope to  watch the recording version of the webinar
The damn slow connection is  really buzzkill !! :/

Hi Mostapha,

Great webinar, thanks a lot! I'll be looking forward for the next one!

Hi Mostapha,

It was great webinar. I really enjoyed and help me better understand whole set up. For many reasons I/we can not wait for Honeybee!   

Great Webinar!

Really clear and informative, would love to see more of these
