Just getting started with Rhino, I have been going through the forums looking for some advice on how approach lighting design in Rhino.
Refraction / Reflection
I came across this old plugin for refractive calculations. I was wondering if there is any hope that is still alive and that I could make it work in Rhino for Mac? Or perhaps the maths are straightforwards enough that it would be easiest to recreate using curves and surfaces in Python?
I am looking for ways to plot an IES profile from an object. I am not interested in rendered visualizations, an overlay of curves would give me a good understanding on how the light source is spreading through space and allow me to position and modify objects.
Are there any tools of the sort for Rhino / Grasshopper?
It would be great to have some pointers, I am sure that some of you do similar work and found solutions.
Thank you for your help
