The Solar Analysis for Dynamo package (0.1.2) doesn’t have direct sunlight. Also strangely, I am using the latest Dynamo daily build and if I go to installed packages it says its installed, but it doesn’t appear in the menu and my old scripts with solar analysis nodes in them doesn’t work/show.
There are very specific solar regulations here in Sydney. Apartments must achieve a min. of 2 or 3 hours of direct sunlight between 9am-3pm on the winter solstice. Ladybug did this perfectly. Set the interval for say 15 mins, so 6 hours x 4 intervals = 24 separate studies. It then stores the accumulative values and returns a coloured mesh with baked vertices.
Konrad’s post looks as though he is running the analysis in Ladybug and then exporting the values to Dynamo to recreate. I want to be able to run the analysis directly in Dynamo. Grasshopper is great for the earlier stages of a project but at some point the Revit model needs to take over which makes Dynamo a better option for analysis
