Read THERM Result

Component Index > Honeybee > 11 | THERM > Read THERM Result

Use this component to import the colored mesh results from a THERM simulation. Note that, because the THERM API version is not free, you will have to open the file generated by run the "Write THERM File" component are run it yourself (maybe in the future, we will be able to launch it from the command line).
Before you run the file in THERM, make sure that you go to Options > Preferences > Simulation and check "Save Conrad results file (.O)" in order to enure that your THERM simulation writes all results out in a format that this component understands.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
_resultFile_resultFileThe resultFileAddress from the "Write THERM File" component. Make sure that you have opened THERM and run your file before using this component. Also, before you run the file in THERM, make sure that you go to Options > Preferences > Simulation and check "Save Conrad results file (.O)" in order to enure that your THERM simulation writes this file.Goo
uFactorFile_uFactorFile_An optional path to a THERM file that has been saved after importing and simulating files generated with the 'Honeybee_Write THERM File' component. Before you run the file in THERM, make sure that you go to Options > Preferences > Preferences and check "Automatic XML Export on Save" in order to enure that your THERM simulation writes this uFactorFile.Goo
thermFile_thermFile_An optional filepath to a THERM file that has been generated with the 'Honeybee_Write THERM File' component. The header of this file contains information on the transformations used to map the original geometry between Rhino space and the THERM canvas. As a result, connecting a file here ensures that imported results happen on top of the original Rhino geometry. If no file address is connected here, the THERM results are imported with their THERM canvass coordinates.Goo
dataType_dataType_An optional integer to set the type of data to import. If left blank, this component will import the temperature data. Choose from the following two options: 0 - Temperature (temperature meshValues at each point in C) 1 - Heat Flux (heat flux meshValues at each point in W/m2)Goo
SIorIP_SIorIP_Set to 'True' to have all data imported with SI units (Celcius and W/m2) and set to 'False' to have all data imported with IP Units (Farenheit and BTU/ft2). The default is set to 'True' for SI.Goo
legendPar_legendPar_Optional legend parameters from the Ladybug "Legend Parameters" component.Goo
_runIt_runItScript variable PythonGoo

------------------------------Script variable readTHERMGoo
coloredMeshcoloredMeshA mesh of the original THERM geometry that is colored with the results.Goo
legendlegendA legend for the coloredMesh above. Connect this output to a grasshopper "Geo" component in order to preview this legend separately in the Rhino scene.Goo
legendBasePtlegendBasePtThe legend base point, which can be used to move the legend in relation to the newMesh with the grasshopper "move" component.Goo
titletitleThe title text of the results. Hook this up to a native Grasshopper 'Geo' component to preview it separately from the other outputs.Goo
titleBasePttitleBasePtPoint for the placement of the title, which can be used to move the title in relation to the chart with the native Grasshopper "Move" component.Goo
