Is it possible to set up an UMI model and run the simulation all in grasshopper?
To give some context:
I'm developing a generation-evaluation algorithm in Grasshopper. The code is responsible for generating thousands of random community design scenarios along with random placements of PV panels and for each generated community the code needs to simulate a community-wide energy consumption and PV energy production. The entire generation process is now automated and I'm working on the simulation part.
Currently, the generative part of the code develops a 3D model of a community and assigns random functions to the buildings (residential, commercial, etc.). I want to know that if I create some template building settings in UMI, will I be able to use the limited UMI components in grasshopper to assign each template to its designated building function, run the simulation automatically, and export the data as a .csv file?
If yes, do you know how can I do that?
