Morpho

A plugin to create Envimet 2.5D and 3D models (INX), write configuration files (SIMX), run simulation and read results.
It is based on following projects: lb_envimet, df_envimet and Envimet INX. It contains a library of classes you can use with Grasshopper, Dynamo and other softwares.

This project is partially financed by ENVI_met GmbH

Requirements

Installation:

  1. Download and run Morpho.Rhino.Installer.exe from Releases
  2. Download the examples from Releases

Uninstall:

  1. Go to Add or remove programs
  2. Search for Morpho.Rhino
  3. Uninstall it

Dependencies

Software tested

  • Rhino 6, Rhino 7
  • Dynamo for Revit 2021

Features:

  • Settings of Workspace, project and model
  • Modeling of envimet entities for 2.5D and 3D INX. Such as Buildings, Plant2D and Soils
  • Reading materials from system DB, project DB and user DB
  • Settings of simulation file (SIMX) with more than 15 advanced settings. Both Simpleforcing and Fullforcing supported.
  • Running envimet simulation
  • Reading binary output files of envimet (EDT): Atmosphere, Soil, Surface, Buildings, Vegetation, SolarAccess, Radiation

Improvements:

  • it is possible to use class library with other softwares: only requirement is translate input geometries in Facegroup and Vector of MorphoGeometry
  • integration with ShrimpGIS and Gismo
  • Grid settings is based on a single point, user specify how many grid cells to use in x, y and z.
  • User experiece of modeling of 3D trees. Geometries are points
  • Flexible way to read EDT files
  • It generates 2.5D and 3D models.

Limits:

  • 1D results reader and receptors reader need to be add

Roadmap

  • Components for Grasshopper
  • Solve geometry3sharp intersection performance issue with big meshes - MorphoGeometry! :
  • 5 Example files for Grasshopper
  • Create DEM using directly an ASCII matrix
  • Added UTM for georeference.
  • Add DLL and components to read EDT EDX. Almost done.
  • Add documentation string of C# library
  • Release nodes for Dynamo for geometry. Dynamo development is on pause. If you are a dynamo developer feel you free to improve Morpho
