Use this component to generate ENVI-Met v4.0 3D geometry models.
Analyze parametric models with ENVI-Met!
Save the model in the ENVI_MET Workspace, set the simulation file with ENVI_MET ConfigWizard and run the simulation.
N.B. It can write files with equidistant grid only. If you want to visualize INX file with ENVI_MET SPACES you need to use "Open 3D view".

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
Location_locationThe output from the importEPW or constructLocation component. This is essentially a list of text summarizing a location on the earth.Goo
North_north_Input 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
Base PointbasePoint_Input a point here to move ENVI-Met grid. If no input is provided it will be origin point.Goo
------------------------------------(...)Goo
Num X_numX_Number of grid cells in base plane x direction. Default value is 20.Goo
Num Y_numY_Number of grid cells in base plane y direction. Default value is 20.Goo
Num Z_numZ_Number of grid cells in base plane z direction. Default value is 20.Goo
Dim X_dimX_Size of grid cell in meter. Default value is 3.0.Goo
Dim Y_dimY_Size of grid cell in meter. Default value is 3.0.Goo
Dim Z_dimZ_Size of grid cell in meter. Default value is 3.0.Goo
----------------------------------------(...)Goo
Base SoilmaterialbaseSoilmaterial_Connect a profileId that you want to use as base material of soil. If no id is provided it will be 'LO'.Goo
Num Nesting GridnumNestingGrid_Connect an integer to set nesting grid around main area. If no input is connected this will be 3.Goo
Nesting Grid SoilnestingGridSoil_Connect two envimet ID soils to set soil profile for nesting grids. Use "LB ENVI-Met Read Library" for that. - If no input is connected this input will be ('LO', 'LO').Goo
----------------------------------------Script input ------------------.Goo
Envimet Buildings_envimetBuildingsOutput which comes from "LB ENVI-Met Building Terrain".Goo
Envimet TerrainenvimetTerrain_Output which comes from "LB ENVI-Met Building Terrain".Goo
Envimet PlantsenvimetPlants_Output which comes from "LB ENVI-Met Soil Plant Source".Goo
Envimet SoilsenvimetSoils_Output which comes from "LB ENVI-Met Soil Plant Source".Goo
Envimet SourcesenvimetSources_Output which comes from "LB ENVI-Met Soil Plant Source".Goo
----------------------------------------Script variable ENVI-SpacesGoo
Folder_folderThe folder into which you would like to write the envimet model. This should be a complete file path to the folder.Goo
File NamefileName_The file name that you would like the envimet model to be saved as. Default name is "LBenvimet".Goo
Run It_runItSet to "True" to run the component and generate the envimet model.Goo
