Honeybee

Honeybee connects the visual programming environment of Grasshopper to four validated simulation engines - specifically, EnergyPlus, Radiance, Daysim and OpenStudio - which evaluate building energy consumption, comfort, and daylighting. These plugins enable a dynamic coupling between the flexible, component-based, visual programming interface of Grasshopper and validated environmental data sets and simulation engines.

Check the source code on Github and download the latest stable version from Food4Rhino.
