High-rise update: solar exposure diagrams

leave a comment »

Also, for each Hi-rise group:
Please produce a VIEW A + VIEW B – similar to the sheet in the example below (from Formit analysis, set to your location).
– Set calendar day to HOTTEST day of the year (Summer solstice for that hemisphere).
– Set time to NOON for time of day.

REVIT TIP:  Academic versions of Revit make it difficult to import images into sheets…they end up 1.  mirrored  and 2.  upside down.
To work around this,
1.  Take a large screen clipping of your solar exposure View A and View B.
2.  Open these files in Photoshop and mirror the image + rotate the image 180.
3.  Import these new images into Revit.
