Surrounding Buildings

1 minuteread

In order to allow for the shading effect of surrounding objects, enter the Average Height and Average Distance that the Facade is from any large object facing your selected Façade.

Note: The Surrounding Buildings feature will only display when an entire Façade is selected. When a single Surface or only a few Surfaces are chosen, this feature will not be available since a shading object cannot affect only a single Surface or Surfaces on different orientations to the same extent.

Facades/Surfaces may also have the same orientation but exist on different planes and so would be affected to different extents.  This feature, to simulate surrounding objects that would cause a shading effect on the model, currently only affects the Daylighting results and not the Solar Loads.

Surrounding Buildings may be simulated if they are not modeled
