    Daylight Calculation in Revit

    Can daylight calculations be done in revit? or is there a plug in that can be used.

    cheers

    The people at https://xinaps.com/ should have something, but can't really find anything on their website anymore.

    I made myself various families and schedules to make it easier, but for me it is still a lot of manual work.

    [edit] looks like all info of the xinaps daylight calculation app is gone. Links to the Autodesk app store are dead and youtube video's removed. I guess that one is not there anymore

    was thinking about that, and also been looking at relux with the revit plugin.

    does the insight one work well? and correctly?

    cheers

    I've never had to use it. Although I have a project right now that I probably could test it out if I wanted.
