For the VIPER component of Grasshopper (DIVA), can you have overlapping window components? For instance, a Kalwall window component (full wall) with clear glazing window components planar to that wall?
I have a curtain wall as a construction zone, the Kalwall as a window component planar to the construction zone, and then clear glazing overlapping both the planar Kalwall and construction zone? Will viper take the lowest R-value, combine them, etc?
Thanks in advance,
Both the Kalwall and the clear glazing are considered windows by EnergyPlus, and need to be hosted by another surface that is NOT a window. So you should beak up the Kalwall window into a few pieces that surround the clear glazing.
It was a challenge doing it parametrically, but got it. Thanks!
