I am working on a daylight simulation and currently trying to create a double insulated glass material for Radiance.

software pipeline: IGDB#optics6#window7.2#ecotect2011#grasshopper#radiance#daysim3.1

Could you, please, break down the steps on how to use optics2glazedb in glaze script

*have already found the script source.

the glazing system is: 1st layer: 4mm glass pane pvb standard 0.78mm 6mm glass pane#CL skn 174 coating 16mm argon 90% 2nd layer: 4mm glass pane

@arindarrc Is "daylight#simulation" a specific term? or is it just about daylighting? If so, I would suggest using the existing tag "daylghting" (simulation is implied on this website). You might also want to add "radiance" and "fenestration" tags.

I have not heard of optic2glazedb, can you provide a link or a brief description?

Neal, this thread is more about Optics and some utilities in Radiance, e.g., optics2rad and glaze.

This question was also asked on the radiance-general listserv, and has grown into a legitimate thread over there:
