Sky Dome

Component Index > Ladybug > 2 | VisualizeWeatherData > Sky Dome

This component allows you to visualize a selected sky matrix from the selectSkyMxt component in order to see the patches of the sky dome where radiation is coming from.
The component will produce 3 sky domes by default: a dome showing just the diffuse radiation, a dome showing just the direct radiation, and a dome showing the total radiation.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
north_north_Input a vector to be used as a true North direction for the sun path or a number between 0 and 360 that represents the degrees off from the y-axis to make North. The default North direction is set to the Y-axis (0 degrees).Goo
_selectedSkyMtx_selectedSkyMtxThe output from the selectSkyMtx component.Goo
_centerPoint__centerPoint_A point that sets the location of the sky domes. The default is set to the Rhino origin (0,0,0).Goo
_scale__scale_Use this input to change the scale of the sky dome. The default is set to 1.Goo
_projection__projection_A number to set the projection of the sky hemisphere. The default is set to draw a 3D hemisphere. Choose from the following options: 0 = 3D hemisphere 1 = Orthographic (straight projection to the XY Plane) 2 = Stereographic (equi-angular projection to the XY Plane)Goo
legendPar_legendPar_Optional legend parameters from the Ladybug Legend Parameters component.Goo
showTotalOnly_showTotalOnly_Set to "True" to only show a sky dome with the total radiation. The default is "False", which will produce 3 sky domes: one of diffuse radiation, one of direct radiation, and one of the total radiation.Goo
bakeIt_bakeIt_An integer that tells the component if/how to bake the bojects in the Rhino scene. The default is set to 0. Choose from the following options: 0 (or False) - No geometry will be baked into the Rhino scene (this is the default). 1 (or True) - The geometry will be baked into the Rhino scene as a colored hatch and Rhino text objects, which facilitates easy export to PDF or vector-editing programs. 2 - The geometry will be baked into the Rhino scene as colored meshes, which is useful for recording the results of paramteric runs as light Rhino geometry.Goo
_runIt_runItSet to "True" to run the component and generate a sky dome.Goo

Outputs

NameIDDescriptionType
outreadMe!...String
skyPatchesMeshskyPatchesMeshA colored mesh representing the intensity of radiation for each of the sky patches of the sky dome.Goo
baseCrvsbaseCrvsA set of guide curves that mark information on the sky dome.Goo
altitudeCrvsaltitudeCrvsA set of circular curves that denote the altitude. Note that these will only appear when the _projection_ is set to something other than a 3D sun path.Goo
legendlegendA legend for the sky dome. Connect this output to a grasshopper "Geo" component in order to preview the legend separately in the Rhino scene.Goo
legendBasePtslegendBasePtsThe legend base point(s), which can be used to move the legend(s) in relation to the sky domes with the grasshopper "move" component.Goo
