algorithmic modeling for Rhino

live data feeding from GH to Ecotect (custom GH components)
- export mesh geometry to Ecotect
- setup project (location,date,time,....)
- calculate incident solar radiation levels
- import attribute data to GH

I  have been playing around with Geco and really love it! Amazing tool . . . However, I am having trouble calculating incident solar radiation on my model while taking into consideration the immediate context (without calculating the entire context with my model at the same time - which is time consuming).

Is it possible to have ecotect run the insolation calculations on one object  - while calculating the "shadows" cast by surrounding objects - and using the GECO functions?

Thank you so much!

Hi °[u,

How can i render the ecotect colour generation out from rhino? even tho I use the bake with colours provided by giulio. I failed to do so. anyone can help?!?!?

@ jeff:

not sure if it is still of importance....just figured out accidently how to render the mesh colour almost as perfect as it get's previewed...with the rhino render
set your rhino background colour to black, then save and then to transparent....(if you want to have a white background later or whatever colour)
set the render material colour to black and
render :-)
(i usually save keep the transparency of course ;-)

then a little photoshop and it looks convincing

anyone any idea why that works? just curious!

and thanks for the great pluginS!!!

Hello again :)
Many thanks for your answers, time and effort.
Would there be a 64bit Ecotect 2011 or is it all torrent fantasy?

Hi Jeff
the analysis feedback from ecotect is stored in the vertex color node of the mesh.
flamingo and vray do not use the diffuse color node, as far as i know they use the object material color.
as i know in 3dsmax and maya you have the possibility to render the vertex color with vray

Thank you very much for this powerful tool. I was wondering if anyone has been able to render the color attributes imported from Ecotect to Grasshopper with V-ray, Flamingo etc. I've tried modelabs' bakewithcolor and bakewithmaterial and also Giulio Piacentino's bakewithattributes component with no success.

Hi robert,
we are using both (com for start up an lua for controlling ecotect).
Comment by robert cervellione on May 10, 2010 at 6:41pm

are you using lula or COM to interact with ecotect
