    Revit Energy Analysis/Modeling

    Hi all,

    I'm new to this forum, so I apologize if this is not the correct place for this question. I'm working on a project where I need to do some different types of energy analysis using a Revit model, but I really don't know anything about the available functions and features in Revit. What are my options? What types of analysis can be done in Revit 2015, either with the main software or with plug-ins? The main focus would be energy analysis/thermal efficiency and things of that nature. Any information is appreciated, because as I said earlier, I really don't have any current knowledge of the energy analysis capabilities.

    I suspect you'd benefit greatly from our Sustainability Workshop.

      Did Autodesk bring back Vasari?

        You can export GBXML to import to your energy modeling software. You really need to know how to optimize the model for energy analysis, though. Back when I was doing T24 analysis in CA, I found it easier to format some schedules to get the area of walls and area of fenestration and manually input it in EnergyPro. It was just cleaner that way, no extra info to deal with.

          Many of Vasari's Energy modeling tools have been incorporated into either Revit itself, or FormIt.

            Interesting, I've been told by those that have used Vasari, that is was a great Beta program. Thanks

              We've done a lot of development lately in this area. Here's a few resources:

              Correct. The vast majority of the Vasari labs effort migrated into existing capabilities in Revit or FormIt.
