HemiCube – Black body view factor calculation via radiosity based on the hemicube/paraboloid approach

HemiCube is a demonstrator software to calculate black body view factors inside a spacecraft based on the HemiCube (and optionally, the Paraboloid) approach utilizing MonoGame.

View factors are computed by creating a half-spherical dome on each surface. The dome is centered on the surface normal and represents the possible solid angles in which radiation can be emitted. The view factors for any given objects is given by the fraction of the total surface area covered by the objects.
