mirro in ecotect

Dear all,

I want to build a mirror in ecotect and simulate with radiance. But it didn't succeed. Because it has no right reflective effect on the wall. Could you tell me where goes wrong?

Best Wishes,
XuCe

Hi XuCe,

you need to make use of the „mirror“ material in that case, if you use the classic back-ward mode in Radiance. It will generate a virtual light source for a flat surface. Make sure that the surface normal points to the correct direction.

An example:

void mirror mirrorMat
0
0
4 .9 .9 .9

Please check ray.html as coming with Radiance (directory ray/doc) for details.

Cheers, Lars.
