Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
Cnstr Name_cnstrNameEnergyPlus construction nameGoo
Surface TypesurfaceType_An integer value from 0 to 3 that represents one of the following surface types: 0 - Exterior Wall/Window 1 - Exterior Roof 2 - Exposed FloorGoo
Internal Temp_internalTempIndoors temperature of roomGoo
Out Temp_outTempOutdoors temperature of roomGoo
Internal Relative Humidity_internalRelativeHumidityIndoors relative humidityGoo
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::Script variable HB_CondensationCalculatorGoo
Base Point_basePoint_An optional point with which to locate the 3D chart in the Rhino Model. The default is set to the Rhino origin at (0,0,0).Goo
Scale_scale_The scale of the surface type section. The default is set to 1.Goo
Bake ItbakeIt_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
