12.3 Design Options

2 minutesread

Alternate design options in Revit are accommodated by Guardian Glass for BIM where various iterations of the model may be shown in a project.  The current primary option will be used for analysis.  When an alternate design option is chosen, it should be made the primary option temporarily for analysis purposes and the application should be closed and re-opened.  Solar Loads should be calculated again in the Building Manager and the current model will then be analyzed.

Design options – analyzing one iteration of the design
Design options – analyzing a second iteration of the design

Note: You may need to close the application and re-open to initiate the updated Energy Model.  Please recalculate Solar Loads in the Building Manager and Refresh the Dashboard to view results for any variant.

Surface numbering and quantities of Surfaces may occur when comparing various iterations of the model.
