SD Ladybug Support

Hi SD team,

I would like to ask if there is any update on the Ladybug tools supports inside SD, as it already appear as planned on the featured requests poll. Thank you very much team, keep opn like this!

We are currently evaluating all the Ladybug and Honeybee components and the best way to implement the plugin in ShapeDiver but I can’t give you more details at this point.

Could you tell me more about how would you use Ladybug with ShapeDiver? What is the most important for your work? Your feedback can help us to prioritise and release what you need earlier.

Hi Pavol,

The goal it’s to automate and optimize the configuration of a given architectural system through environmental simulations.

By now the project it’s a bit raw, but it seem that will be needed to use LB, so it would be nice to know a little about the timeline of the deployment in order to give some feedback to the client.

Maybe we could talk with the SD team in the near future to view the feasability of the project? Thank you again, really apreciate the help.

Thank you very much for your feedback @joan.marc, I will keep you posted.

Also, bear in mind that not all Grasshopper functionality and components are supported on ShapeDiver. This includes Galapagos which is popular for optimisation workflows, learn more here and here.

Thank you Pavol, we’ll have it in mind as well!

Hi SD-team,
I’m currently stuck with the same problem.
Otherwise I’m looking for the implementation of Honeybee components in ShapeDiver, and just want to follow up. Are there any news about this topic, or is it still not possible for you to say? @pavol

@patrickdahlgreen We are working on the Ladybug and Honeybee support and we would like to support the Pollination cloud as well. However, both plugins need lots of adaptations to make them ShapeDiver compatible. We are in contact with the developers and we collaborate on the most appropriate solution hoping to have a running solution before the summer. Stay tuned!
