KR92: When do I set parameters in View Factors? And what are these blocking/nonblocking adaptive/hemicube, smoothing settings?

You visit the view factor parameter panel if you want to add more faces per surface cluster, change the view factor calculation method or smooth the view factor values. Blocking/Nonblocking settings refer to the existence of obstacles in the path of radiation traveling between surfaces. Use Adaptive Method to compute view factors for simple geometries only. Smoothing makes results more accurate but slows down view factor computation.
