This article is about "a design way in the future". It discusses the impact of the rapid development of computer science, mathematics, and computer graphics on our design industry with the progress of science and technology. Think about how to keep pace with the times.
This paper introduces a new software which is trying to change our design mode. This software provides a real-time visible, WYSIWYG working mode. This software makes our work become light, and the efficiency is improved by tens to hundreds of times. It can help us to automatically count the area, economic and technical indicators, and real-time sunshine analysis tool software.
Sunflower sunshine is a plug-in running on rhino and grasshopper platforms, which can automatically count area indicators and sunshine analysis. Many excellent features make more and more designers choose to use it. The following is on rhino plug-in official website, food4rhino.com, User's comment screenshot, because some subversive, revolutionary, and other words have been abused, we use pictures and data, and facts to explain why you choose sunflower sunshine in a non pompous and grounded way.
It's too difficult for designers. Party A's modification opinions are frequent, and the time required for drawing delivery is very short. What should we do?
At this time, I would like to think that if there is someone who can help me to do this, (it's a little unlikely to be specially assigned with a secret). Or is it a very happy thing to have such a tool to help me do these things
Computer aided design program helps us to complete creation. The program is much more efficient and accurate than human. The program helps us to complete the monotonous and repetitive work, and the calculation of area and volume is left to the computer. The "advantage" is that it is too convenient to modify. Whether we modify the number of floors, height, area, contour, etc., we can automatically count the indicators and sunshine analysis, and we can get them in real time Results of sunshine analysis. This benefit is obvious. You don't need to manually count indicators. Manual statistics indicators are time-consuming and laborious, and easy to make mistakes. This part of indicator statistics is now completed by the program, which can help us to quickly review and adjust the plan. Help enterprises improve business agility and respond to Party A's needs quickly.
"Sunflower sunshine" only calculates all geometric objects within the set range. When we move, add or delete objects, or change the floor area or floor number and other attributes, the program will automatically perceive. If the objects within the range are changed, the program will quickly respond to our operation, calculate the index statistics and sunshine results, and give us real-time feedback. The advantage is that we can put some objects that do not need to be calculated temporarily aside when we are deliberating on the scheme. When we need to participate in the calculation, we can move it to the scope to facilitate our deliberation on the scheme.
The indicator statistics function is easy to use, flexible and powerful. It supports block editing and multiple nesting. It supports importing, inserting, copying or pasting the previously defined polylines or blocks with indicator statistics attributes from outside. It is defined once, reused and once and for all. For how to use indicator statistics tools, please check the video tutorial of sunflower sunshine website
In practical work: a very important factor "sunshine" should be considered in the general layout. Sunflowers have powerful sunshine function and many sunshine analysis methods
There are multiple built-in color display styles for sunshine analysis settings. Users can set them flexibly according to different needs, or use the parameterized plug-in we developed for grasshopper to customize color styles more flexibly
The analysis mode of 2D lattice, which is the most common way to do sunshine analysis in our country, is to calculate the number of hours each point in the lattice receives light, and display the value at the point position. Sunflower sunshine can be accurate to minutes, can get very delicate sunshine analysis results, there are a variety of color display modes, convenient for users to observe and judge when adjusting the scheme.
The characteristic of this analysis mode is that the analysis speed is the fastest. This is an analysis case, which analyzes the relationship between every month, solar height angle and shadow projection.
Rendering analysis mode can directly see the situation of sunshine in three-dimensional space, which is a pixel based analysis mode. The grid can get very fine sunshine analysis results without subdivision. In some places where sunshine has problems, it can directly see the affected area,
The mode of 3D sampling points is more flexible. As long as users select points in 3D space, they can analyze the time of each point receiving light and color it. If users move or copy the selected points, they can get the results of sunlight analysis in real time.
The way of this analysis is to analyze the length of the light received by each grid surface on the grid object. The most representative case is the Kazakhstan national library designed by big firm, which is one of the most creative firms in the world. Big firm uses the parameterized sunshine analysis technology to analyze the lighting data on the building surface, and then uses the parameterized sunshine analysis technology In order to ensure the uniformity of lighting in the interior space of the library, a continuous and rhythmic facade form is also given to the building. The design logic of the library is in harmony with the design form, which is a representative work of integrating the design mode. This is the whole process of sunflower sunshine analysis plug-in simulation. There are many similar cases, and now the green sustainable building is advocated. We can use sunflower sunshine analysis plug-in as a design tool, take sunshine analysis as the design basis, and act on the design.
Sunflower is a very simple thing to do sunshine analysis. Compared with other sunshine software, sunflower has an absolute advantage in computing speed. Whether it's moving, rotating, adding or deleting, all the results of indicators, blocks, sunshine and so on are real-time feedback. We want to provide users with a real-time and visible quick interaction effect.
How can we achieve such a fast computing speed? Let's share some technical details. Here we use multithreading of CPU and parallel computing of GPU
For example, sometimes our computer configuration is very high. Why is it still a card? This is actually a software problem. A single threaded program is like, for example: there are 12 core CPUs, like these 12 people, one of them will be very busy, one of them is working, others are idle, and resources are seriously wasted.
The reasonable solution is: if the calculation is large, we should multithread programming. We should apply more people (people are like threads) to the company's leaders (leaders are like operating systems), and we should do this together. In this way, the efficiency will be improved at once.
This is the fastest way. The answer is: No, the pace of human beings' speed has never stopped. People who want to pursue the ultimate like me must do everything possible to improve their speed and speed up to a higher level. At this time, we wonder if we can find other departments to work together. This is not more efficient. Other departments are like GPUs, Even the video card on the computer is a waste of resources as a display device alone. We can't let the video card idle, so we need to integrate all available resources. That's faster.
For example, the CPU is like this. The management organization is overstaffed and the number of people who really work is small. just like this picture
GPU, on the contrary, has more people to work, less people to manage, and high efficiency of calculation. Like the novel coronavirus pneumonia outbreak in Wuhan, the construction of the fire god mountain hospital.
In theory, GPU is tens of times more powerful than CPU at the same price, but it is also much faster than CPU due to bandwidth and data transmission delay. Our idea is: don't be idle and work together, so we can achieve a relatively fast computing speed.
In this way, your highly configured computer can be put to full use, give full play to the performance of hardware, and enjoy the pleasure of hardware acceleration. These are the crystallization of the wisdom of computer scientists, mathematicians and program developers. Without good software support, computers are just a pile of scrap iron
The calculation speed is really fast. Is the calculation result accurate? In order to dispel everyone's doubts, we still speak with facts, which are better than eloquence. We found a wrong one as a negative teaching material, and we calculated an accurate comparative analysis.
This is a typical case. It's a classic, famous and green building design case. This picture is from the official website of big design firm
The error mainly occurs at the turning point of the object. The contrast between the adjacent mesh surfaces is too large, which does not conform to the natural laws and physical phenomena. The calculation is not accurate, because the algorithm of illumination has problems. Just like some rendering software, there are a lot of noise points on the rendered effect map, which are all problems of the algorithm itself.
It needs to be clarified here: I have no doubt about their design level. I always think that they are one of the most creative architectural design firms in the world. Big firm is one of the top and most creative design firms. It uses the wrong sunshine analysis software and has a little flaw. We try to avoid this situation in our work.
The above picture is the same case. It uses sunflower sunshine to do sunshine analysis again. The correct sunshine analysis result should be this way. The color naturally transits according to the direction of the light, without color jump, which is in line with the natural physical phenomenon.
Sunflower sunshine calculation result is accurate, please do not question its accuracy. As long as you have received education and learned geography, you know the relationship between longitude, latitude, time and time zone. The above picture demonstrates the principle of sunshine analysis. If the calculation is not accurate, you can see it at a glance. In the past few years since the software was launched, there have been many sunflower sunshine users in international famous design companies, colleges and universities at home and abroad, and about hundreds of thousands of sunflower sunshine users in the world. They have done countless projects, and the results of sunshine analysis of many projects have been reviewed by the sunshine section of local planning bureau. There is no problem at all. Please feel free to use them.
The sunflower sunshine plug-in can be installed with one click. The software has set default parameters, set options in groups, and clear logic. There are sample files in the installation package. The software has built-in web pages to open help. There are video tutorials and technical support and service phones about how to use sunflower sunshine on the web pages.
