Hi all,

Per the title, I have been experimenting with workflows to Rhino/Grasshopper for lighting simulation studies with DIVA. Normally, the window glazing needs to be exploded and one of the prime glazing surfaces needs to be deleted for each window to run a study, and I was looking for a way to skip this process manually.

I've tried to set the glazing thickness in window properties to 0 but it seems to want a non-zero number. I have then been looking at the (blue) gs_glass_thk parameter in the GDL interface and the parameter will neither allow zero nor to be edited meaningfully, or deleted in order to create a new one.

I've tried looking for this parameter thinking it might exist under a different sub-category, but have not found one.

Any suggestions on what might be a possible solution?
