Solar Incidence

Mesh incidence analysis

Ted Ngai’s solar incidence definition has been the standard grasshopper definition for calculating solar position and sun angles since it was released over 2 years ago. Since that time, Grasshopper has released update after update and has switched from OpenNurbs to RhinoCommon for script components.
Ngai’s definition is not significantly affected because most of the VB.NET scripts involved dealt only with numeric computation and not geometric objects. This is a very straightforward updating of Ngai’s definition to current methods of GH version 0.8.0008.
