algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Rothko Chapel rhino model with Grasshopper deflection baffle. Height, size, and concavity of deflections baffle are genomes, average daylight factor closest to 3% in the space is fitness. Low ambient bounce of 1 used for this demo.

Hi Jeff.

Great work. Have you stored your values anywhere? Like you can do by using slider animation and the project name? Or do you simply overwrite the results and the use the "best" one? I mean it is not possible to tell by project name how many times Galapagos will run? So what is the best way if you wanna analysis the results afterwards?

As the diva toggle component will be always set "true", for each time Galapagos change the slider's value, a new simulation will start. Does that mean simulations will be repeated for the same cases every time Galapagos recall this value ? or is there someway to avoid repeating the same cases again ?

Try uploading the latest version of the assembly, I have made some changes:

The sliders are triggering two analysis events, I think this is a problem with grasshopper which will be resolved soon, I am not sure yet whether galapagos is registering two results for each slider variation.

I'm currently trying to run Diva with Galapagos. The geometry keeps being updated by the sliders but the analysis never runs.  Any suggestions?

The video is not playing at normal speed, I let this analysis run for about 2 hours. Cranking the ambient bounce up to a 3 or 4 to be more realistic for an indirect lighting condition would have increased the simulation to a couple days.

is the video playing at 'normal' speed? great example btw.
