** **Mr.Comfy 0.21 released | Custom Spatial Thermal Metrics & Independent Daylight Visualization
Mr.Comfy 0.21 brings two new main features: custom thermal variable expressions and improvements in how the daylight mapping functionality can now be used more independently of the thermal mapping inputs, requiring only a set of Daysim *.pts and *.ill files to be provided. See the full list of changes here. The new metrics functionality is probably more exciting, so let’s see what that is all about:
One of the original development drivers behind Mr.Comfy has always been the insight that specific combinations of design intent, building typology and climate require custom analysis scenarios to achieve highest projected early design-stage building performance. Environmental design procedures should be uniquely tuned to marry process with data interpretation and generation scenarios, and link performance display to geometry. That’s the interstice in which the tool operates; the newest version goes a step further by allowing custom report variable generation from existing E+ report outputs.
