Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Properly prepare a Revit model for analysis and advise others on how to do so
  • Successfully embed analysis into a BIM workflow using different translation techniques at different design stages
  • Achieve high levels of accuracy when importing Revit models into IES VE
  • Describe the different levels of complexity available within the IES VE to Revit plug-in

Description

Description

The Integrated Environmental Solutions (IES) VE plug-ins for Autodesk Revit software enable direct translation of models for performance analysis within any of the tools from Integrated Environmental Solutions: VE-Ware, VE-Toolkits, VE-Gaia, and VE-Pro. This class will provide useful hints and tips on how to export geometry from Revit into the IES Virtual Environment using the Revit into IES plug-in. Discover how the Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow can use this plug-in for detailed energy modeling and gather expert advice on rooms and volumes computation, modeling a "room inside a room," columns, problem wall conditions, and much more. To take advantage of this advanced workflow between the platforms, the Revit model must be properly prepared for analysis. Like any type of analysis, the usefulness and accuracy of the results depend greatly on the quality of the inputs. Companies such as CBT Architects have achieved high levels of success in importing Revit models into IES VE. Discover how you too can achieve this.
