Just a thought: Do you think there is a way to select apertures by defined properties like glazing area, construction type and/or orientation in Rhino? If not, it might be useful to have a PO command for selecting apertures with defined properties when there are several window configurations or construction types on our model. What could be even better is having an assign command when we want to change or match window properties quickly. This could be a simple time-saver.
Example: In order to assign a lower g-value for south-facing windows, we can use the command and select windows that are south-facing only.
Let me know if this makes sense,
Good question! I can provide you with a good temporary solution to get what you have in mind.
You can use Grasshopper to select the apertures by attributes.
- Disable the room selection mode
- Run the grasshopper workflow

Hi @antonellodinunzio - Thanks for the quick workaround. A follow up question, do you think is there a way to integrate “window area” into the face attributes as well? What could be the next step when we want to select windows that are larger than 2 sq m?
You can add filters and combine them with a native component of Grasshopper.
