A short post (urgh) about these two endless days. I’ve finally been able to put a Sunpath diagram and learn how to generate a real-time shadow depending on the local time and localization. I used Ladybug plug-in since it is a loss of time to make a tool that is already existed for that kind of stuff, and I just tried to understand how to convert it to Mars “time”. So yeah, it is not perfect, but here it is. I just need to add some more structure, and perfecting the public space of the dome and then, it would be enough for Rhinoceros and Grasshopper for the month. After that, I just need to photoshop the views and work on the perception of the interior space of the dome. It would be nice if I can print everything in 3D too for the end of the week. Oh, and of course, working on the presentation for the jury… GOSH, a lot of works and stress.
What did I learn?
- Sunpath diagram used for localization and time.
- Ladybug nodes and their uses.
- Hydra library.
- Making a shadow
- Connecting the meshes and using preview to reduce the amount of render.
- Making a sun analyzing system depending on the sun-path.
