Opaque Construction

Create an EnergyPlus opaque construction. Material inputs can be either the identifiers of materials within the library or a custom material made with any of the EnergyPlus Material components.

Note that the _materials should be ordered from outermost (exterior) layer to the innermost (interior) layer.


  • name

    Text to set the name for the Construction and to be incorporated into a unique Construction identifier.

  • materials [Required]

    List of materials in the construction (from exterior to interior). These materials can be either fully-detailed material objects built with the material components or text for a material identifier to be looked up in the opaque material library. Note that a native Grasshopper "Merge" component can be used to help order the materials correctly for the input here.


  • constr

    An opaque construction that can be assigned to Honeybee Faces or ConstructionSets.
