There are several ways to achieve certain model and documentation results in Revit. For example, walls have have all the materials in a single element (i.e. wall types) or they can exist in multiple wall types and be combined (i.e. modeled side-by-side). Today's post shares some benefits to the multiple-elements workflow.
Autodesk launched a new online community today called Autodesk Community Voices. I am excited to be among the first authors to contribute content! I share info on the Autodesk Feedback Community and my related trip to Autodesk's Shanghai, China offices!
Today's post highlights a comparison I did between Autodesk Solar Analysis and NREL PVWatts. A key takeaway is we can get accurate results using Solor Analysis, on any Revit project, in minutes... a workflow we employ at Lake|Flato!
By the way, Solar Analysis uses the Perez Solar Model, a calculation method that occurs locally within Revit.
When performing more refined comparisons within Autodesk Insight, it is helpful to export the results to a table, for a more accurate pEUI value... up to 8 decimal places. Today's post is an example from a current Lake|Flato project:)
Breaking news... Enscape and Chaos group join to become a single company. It is not April, and this is no joke... the two companies merge to create the world's leading force in visualization for the AEC industry.
In six months, the national American Institute of Architects(AIA) convention will descend upon Chicago for their first in-person gather since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Today's post will share the conference details and the four sessions Lake|Flato will be participating in.
