This tutorial is about checking what exactly properties that was assigned to the object we are going to run the energy simulation.
By now, Honeybee is already very smart in terms of setting up zones. There are a lot of properties are set by default if you don’t specially assign. Such as the simplest example here:
At this level, if turn on the runEnergyPlus, EnergyPlus can run without getting any error, but when you think about how to make it a correct simulation, you will start to consider what HVAC system it is using, what construction the roof is assigned, and what materials are inside of this construction, etc.
So here is this addin, which can tell you properties of the energy model for the simulation you are about to run.
Here are some other examples:
