Hello DIVA team, I want to know where are the .ill files for each GH simulations if any.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Pablo,

The v4 components don't use ILL files -- The data is stored in the DLT file (in a more efficient binary format), and can be extracted quite easily using the Grid Viewer and Data Viewer components.  (See "C:\DIVA\ExampleFiles\Grasshopper\Daylight\02_AnnualDaylight_E_HourlyData.gh")

With that said, you can still export an ILL file by turning on the (hidden) Export ILL input param on the Annual Daylight component.

Thank you Jon for your response, but I find quite unconfortable managing such ammount of data through a GH wire (i used a python component for reading the .ill on DIVA previous versions), so can you tell me how I get to the hidden Export ILL input param?? 

Thanks

Components all have a zoomable interface for adding/removing (or setting) params:

FYI, most of the time associated with the Grid Viewer component solver is in building the preview geometry.  Once that's loaded, the geometry is cached and data retrieval itself is quite fast.  (Faster than from an ascii file, actually.)

Got it... thanks you Jon!.
