I'm trying to run a climate base simulation in order to later do a thermal analysis but I'm getting the error message below.

Hi Dylan,


Does re-running the Location command help in this case?

Hi Alstan,

Yes, I've tried restarting Rhino, Computer, re-downloading the file, reloading the location, etc, but to no avail. I think it says in the command sequence something about light source not found but not sure what that means since the location information will bring in all the necessary light.

Hi Dylan,

Thank you. Can you zip your C:\DIVA\Temp\Office_thermal\ folder and send it to me at alstan@solemma.net? That should allow me to see in detail what is going wrong.

Thank you,

Alstan

Hi Alstan,

Thanks for your help. I attached the zip to this reply because gmail doesn't allow a zip attachment.

But basically what I want to do in the end is thermal analysis. I don't know if climate based simulation is necessary in order to do a thermal analysis but I get an error message when I try to run the thermal analysis. This is what I get when I try to do a thermal analysis.

Hello Dylan,

I apologize for taking so long to get back to your query.

On one hand, I'm not clear why you had an error running the lighting calculations -- they seem to be working perfectly on my end. More investigation would be needed.

For the thermal calculations (since they seem to be the things that matters here), I think the issue is that you don't have any geometry on the DIVA thermal layers. See this page for a decent description of how they need to be run.

Now in DIVA-Grasshopper we have a significantly more advanced energy modelling platform called Archsim, which you may also be interested to utilize.

Best regards,

Alstan
