  • November 13, 2013


    Enjoyed the first video and am looking forward to the next one.

    I took a similar strategy for consolidating building materials except that I combed through the complex profiles of our template to find some of those additional “empty fills” to make sure I knew what was being replaced when I consolidated the building materials. I am also modifying all of the physical properties of the materials based on the AC17 defaults and ASHRAE handbook so that we can jump right into the energy evaluation tool.

    However, regarding updating AC16 templates to work with building materials, what are you doing with layer intersection groups vs building material intersection priorities? Seems like a lot of the graphic manipulation that was achieved via layer intersection groups is no longer needed.
