Good afternoon, does anyone know if there is a way to add blinds to my Open Studio model. My intention is that the sun doesn't shine so much through the windows (reduce thermal gains in the glazing). Can you tell me the way or if there is any ''measure'' that allows you to add it?

Regards, Pablo

In the App, go to Shading Controls in the Subsurfaces sub-tab (Spaces tab). You can follow the steps in Neil Bulger's nice video. Here, I'm simply relying on the shading material/control that comes with OpenStudio.

You could instead follow the Plugin steps in this OpenStudio Coalition tutorial.

Finally, one can always script an SDK-based solution.
