Example files:

- You can download Ladybug example files from here. (Getting started, Wind, Radiation, SunPath, Environmental Analysis, Real-time Radiation Analysis, Ray-tracing, View Rose, Shadow Study)

Video tutorials:

- How to use sunpath in Ladybug: Part I, Part IIPart III

How to use "set the view" component in Ladybug by Abraham Yezioro.

- More tutorials for Ladybug on Performance + Form.

"Performance+FORM is a platform to learn, SHARE, and collaborate on projects and WORKFLOWS for environmentally responsive design." The project is started by faculty and students at USC but is open to all. You should check it out!

Other tutorials:

- A pdf tutorial by Anna Kaertner and Chantal Jahn prepared for the Building Technology Laboratory Class at MIT taught by Les Norford. This tutorial goes through almost all of the Ladybug components except the sun-path.

- "Tutorial on the Use of Daysim Simulations for Sustainable Design" is written by Christoph F. Reinhart. From the document: " No matter what your level of expertise with daylight simulations is, you should at least browse through chapters 1 and 2." I totally agree!

Here is a PDF tutorial that goes through almost all Ladybug components other than the sun path:

For those interested, there is also a tutorial on DIVA Viper (useful with Ladybug until Honeybee gets off the ground... and whizzes through the sky...):

Credit is due to Anna Kaertner and Chantal Jahn for compiling the presentations!
