_STEP 4 PARAMETRIC SIMULATIONS OF CONCEPTUAL ROOMS AND FACADE
4.0 Introduction to Parametric simulations
4.1 Short note about parametric studies with Galapagos and Octopus
The Danish architect Daniel Nielsen has a broad experience with Architectural Sustainability and the integration of parametric 3D modeling and simulation tools into the process. He have worked on projects at various scales - from buildings to planning, and have been involved in research and education programs at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Technical University of Denmark.
BEFORE THE WEBINAR
Instructions for Installing Ladybug + Honeybee and other needed software
(Follow steps 0-4 for basic functionality and 0-10 for full functionality)
0 If you have an old version of LB+HB, download this file and open it in Grasshopper to remove your old Ladybug and Honeybee version. https://app.box.com/s/ds96em9l6stxpcw8kgtf
1 Make sure you have a copy of both Rhino and Grasshopper installed that is working and up to date
2 Open Rhino and type "Grasshopper" into the command line (without quotations) and wait for grasshopper to load.
3 Install GHPython 0.6.0.3 by downloading the file from this link and drag the .gha file onto the Grasshopper canvas. http://www.food4rhino.com/project/ghpython?ufh
4 Download Ladybug and Honeybee from food4rhino. You need to have an account to download, create one or use the one you have and login. http://www.food4rhino.com/project/ladybug-honeybee
5 Select all and drag and drop all of the userObject files onto your Grasshopper canvas. You should see Ladybug and Honeybee appear as tabs in the grasshopper tool bar.
6 Restart Rhino and Grasshopper. You now have a fully-functioning Ladybug. Install Honeybee, follow the below steps
7 Install Radiance to C:\Radiance by download it from this link and run the exe file.
8 Install Daysim 4.0 for Windows to C:\DAYSIM by downloading it at this link and run the exe file. http://daysim.ning.com/page/download
9 Install EnergyPlus 8.1 to C:\EnergyPlusV8-1-0 by going to the DOE website. It is needed to have an account, create one or login and select 8.1.0.009 either 32 or 64 bit. After download run the exe file. http://apps1.eere.energy.gov/buildings/energyplus/energyPlus_download.cfm?previous
10 Download and Copy (no installation is needed only copy-paste the files) falsecolor2.exe and evalglare.exe to C:\Radiance\bin
You now have a fully-working version of ladybug and honeybee
