Some of you may have heard the buzz about Revit Sunrise over on Inside the Factory. What is it exactly? It’s a hosted preview of Revit that provides enhancements to Revit that are not currently included in the commercial release. Why is this relevant to BPA? Because we’re test driving some improved automatic thermal zoning!
Revit now offers automatic thermal zoning that uses advanced algorithms, resulting in more accurate energy simulations without additional modeling. Additionally, the accuracy and appearance of analytical surfaces has been improved. Edges are less pixilated, and surfaces are more accurate and less faceted. As a result, the energy analytical model is more accurate, looks better, and generates a smaller XML file.
