DESCRIPTION
This series of components access the sun system in Rhino and allow for control and returning of sun parameters. There are three component types, Rhino Sun Data, which returns the sun system’s current settings, Set Sun, which uses the Latitude / Longitude and Time to set the sun and Set Sun Manual, which sets the sun’s position by Altitude and Azimuth.
INPUTS / OUTPUTS

 

INPUT DateTime Item DT A date and time value using grasshopper’s format
INPUT Double Item LT The Latitude value in degrees
INPUT Double Item LG The Longitude value in degrees
INPUT Boolean Item A If true will change Grasshopper’s current sun to match settings
OUTPUT Object Item V The resultant sun vector

 

INPUT Double Item AZ The Azimuth angle in degrees
INPUT Double Item AT The Altitude angle in degrees
INPUT Boolean Item A If true will change Grasshopper’s current sun to match settings
OUTPUT Object Item V The resultant sun vector

 

INPUT Boolean Item A Optional input to refresh the component
OUTPUT Double Item AT Rhino’s current Altitude angle
OUTPUT Double Item AZ Rhino’s current Azimuth angle
OUTPUT Double Item LT Rhino’s current Latitude coordinate
