Hi, so I'm making opening simulations, the solar radiation in windows, etc but the thing is I put shading devices and nothing happens, the solar radiation is the same on openings, I really thought that changed, so, could you tell me, those shading devices do make a difference or they only make difference in the solar gain part of the pdf report??

How can I do a better opening simulation? what are my options? I'm so confused, if you help me I will be so grateful !

placing physical model in front or above the opening should give you correct solar radiation result from ED* opening tab.

try placing one of tree in front of the opening area.
