Surface Analysis

Below are examples of using GH for analysis. By being able to perform these kinds of analysis directly within GH, there is the opportunity to use the data as a generative tool within a larger parametric framework. The sun system was created at and there you can find the definitions for the last two files (daily and yearly analysis).
Surface Curvature Analysis (gives similar resultes as Rhino's CurvatureAnalysis command)

Flat Panels Analysis (colors flat panels based on how far they deviate from each other)

Sun Angle Visualization (visualizes how the sun is hitting a surface at a given time)

Daily Sun Angle Analysis (definition found at

Yearly Sun Angle Analysis (definition found at
