Hi everyone, hope you’re well,

I have a general question that I believe lots of members here can help me find an answer,

I have a small python program, in which I calculate the energy needs of a building using simple equations and inputs by the users.

I want to add a 3D representation of the zone (preferably with shadings and windows) in the GUI. a similar example of this can be seen in CLIMAPLUS > CLIMABOX online program.

Can anyone help me find the proper python package for this problem?

Thanks in advance.

You may be interested in Geomeppy - a geometry editor built on Eppy - a scripting language written in Python that interacts with EnerygPlus models. The top answer in this post mentions using that to write geometry to an EnerygPlus input file (IDF), and it looks like it can visualize the model's geometry as well.

Hey Aaron, Thank you so much for your help. it seems that the libraries you mention can do what I want. However, I am having a problem importing Geomeppy. I described my problem here, it would be great if you could help me solve this issue.
