algorithmic modeling for Rhino

Demonstration of the Brute Force component to solve a panelization problem with a limited design space. This method solves all possible design combinations and uses Excel to record and sort the variables and fitness values for further evaluation.

Hi Matthew,

I figured that the problem was that I was plugging an integer into L that was smaller than the iterations just to try it out, once i unplugged it the component worked perfectly.

Hi Blanca,

Yes, the component really deserves a bit of an overhaul.  But to a few tricks to get it to work:

1- Make sure the actual sliders are plugged directly into the Brute Force component.

2- Use a button to make it run.

3- Input an integer into L that is larger than the number of all iterations that are possible from your sliders.

Hi Matthew,

I am trying to use Brute Force to run a series of Energy and Daylighting simulations with HoneyBee. When I press the button it turns red (image) but once i let go it will go back to normal without runnin any simulation. Since the red disappears when i release the button i am not able to view the error note. Any ideas of why this may be happening?

Thank you,
