Description

Description

Participants will learn how to use Revit software as a powerful and rapid geometry creation tool. As energy analysts and mechanical engineers, we often require multiple energy analysis programs to produce energy performance models, compliance models for Title 24 and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), load calculation models, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models. We can save significant time and money by using Revit software to create a single analytical model that we can export to various programs, including Simulation CFD software, eQUEST, energyPRO software, Trane's TRACE software, Integrated Environmental Solutions Ltd.'s Virtual Environment software, and California's new CBECC-Com software. This class will provide a detailed workflow for creating the geometry and exporting to the various programs, and you will discover tips and tricks to help troubleshoot and control the quality of your mechanical, electrical, and plumbing designs.
