5.2.5 Freestanding Walls/ Revit objects

1 minuteread

Freestanding detailed Revit objects are also supported and they will cause shading effects on the Revit model.   Shading Factors must be checked in the Building Manager before Calculate Solar Loads are run.

Note: This will reduce the Solar Loads and Daylighting.

Results with adjacent wall cause shading

For Conceptual models, all surrounding objects should be modeled as mass objects.

Detailed calculations for external trees, foliage  and leaf conditions are not currently supported. A conceptual mass objects may be modeled with similar height and breadth as surrounding trees, assuming that the leaf density is consistent throughout.  This will create a similar shade effect on the model.
