Innovative Ways to Visualize Building Performance Data

Presentation 1 Title: Dhour – Grasshopper Based Visualization Toolkit Kyle Steinfeld, Assistant Professor, Department of Architecture, University of California, Berkeley This presentation will detail a new prototyping visualization toolkit called “Dhour”, developed for the Grasshopper visual programming environment, which enables the situational development of information graphics. By enabling more nuanced and customizable views of complex...
New Version of Mr.Comfy Released

New Version of Mr.Comfy Released

Mr.Comfy is a Grasshopper3d component, written in Python, that allows designers to interactively visualize thermal building simulation results data in Rhino3d design models. Instead of using charts or tabular data, energy consumption, comfort and any other available performance report variable are directly displayed through color-coded surfaces (and numeric values) where they occur – in the...
Archsim Energy Modeling for Grasshopper

Archsim Energy Modeling for Grasshopper

The Archsim Energy Modeling component for Grasshopper allows you to quickly create multi-zone energy models and simulations for building design. The tool comes with an abstract thermal model class library and various functions such as “early design auto-zoning”, “automated intersections” etc. that assist you with model creation, simulation and result visualization.  Currently, supported simulation engines...
