    Ecotect Analysis Dynamic Models

    Hello,

    I am trying to learn the ins and outs of Ecotect and I was wondering if anyone knew how to make models dynamic much like the solar panel examples that follow the sun as it moves along its path. I can use the transforms to manually do this one at a time but getting it to be automatic like the examples show is eluding me. This seems like something that may require scripting but I have been unable to find any information on how this type of work is done with models in Ecotect.

    Linked below is a video from one of the example files that I am talking about.

    I'm sorry, in Holland we can buy but we can't learn... There are no teachers in this godforsaken country...:banghead:

    Luckily we're a puny country, with no effect whatsoever in this world. So if anyone else knows, please feel free to chip in.

      Heh, I'm having the same issue here in the U.S. to be honest. The nearest training facility that can do Ecotect training, that I can find, is in Chicago. Which has kind of left me to my own devices for learning. For the basics I found the website below that filled in a lot of simple analysis with the program. Getting CFD to work was a lot of hunting through a dozen or so websites to find information that works and somewhere to get Winair from.

        Well, I'm across the ocean and probably my nearest training center is also in Chicago... Thanks for the website, I will be sure to dig in whenever I find the time.

          Actually just a few hundred kilometers north of you, they are offering training in Ecotect: http://www.teknologisk.dk/uddannelser/k23083

            Well, we are thinking of spending the summer holiday there... so I'll think it over. Maybe I can find an online Danish-to-Dutch translator. If I record all the sessions, I have the rest of my vacation to translate them...

                Don't think, do! (at least I will).

                And language? If you know Frisian, then Danish shouldn't be an issue. Skål!

                    Heh, guess this got resurrected. I ended up getting training for Ecotect up to a point. We had a guy come out from San Francisco to the Minneapolis area that was doing Ecotect training that I sat in on. So now I can do most of the basics like producing analysis in Ecotect and using external analysis programs with it. I'm still working on scripting and learning the ins and outs of that, but I am confident that I will learn it much like when I learned LISP. It will just be a ton of trial and error.
