ArchSim Energy Modeling for GH
Hi all - This is the first [work in progress] release of my Energy Modeling for Grasshopper project.
The components allow you to create energy models for buildings. The tool will write out the required input files for Energy Plus and [TRNSYS B17].
I have tested the project in all conscience but the simulations as well as the code might still contain errors. Please use it "as is", it does not come with warranties. I spent a lot of time developing the logic and implementing it, please give credit where credit is due.
The installation assumes that you have already installed EnergyPlus v8 on your computer. Energy Plus is free and can be downloaded here.
To install the Grasshopper components:
- In Grasshopper, choose File > Special Folders > Components folder. Save all delivered files [gha,dll,xmls] there.
- Right-click the file > Properties > make sure there is no "blocked" text
- Restart Rhino and Grasshopper
I will post a more detailed documentation here, shortly.
