Re: Weather File access!

Hi Sidny, The ManchesterDSY05.fwt is a CIBSE Weather File for Part L DSM analysis in the VE Compliance module and has to be purchased (they aren't sharable). I'd suggest phoning up our technical support team (or sending them in an email) if you want to purchase the file to use for VE Compliance simu...

Re: Add Voids to selected space(s) tool

Hi Luke, That's by design as I assumed that there wouldn't be any glazing required in the void space. I'll speak to the guy who's taken the tool off me and as that he change that and add in a toggle as you suggest. For the moment if you... 1) draw a temp zone along side the original space it'll get ...

Re: Apache error

hi,
Is there more content to the message?
Generally you'd see that if there was a weekly profile missing from the db (or referencing a missing daily profile) OR if somehow you had referenced a modulating profile when Apache was expecting an absolute profile (say a set-point).
David.

Re: Graphics Issue in ModelIT

hmmm... strange one. My immediate thought would be that the graphics card on the laptop can't handle the second monitor fully (with the resolution set). I'm not writing out an issue in ModelIT but I'm pretty sure it's not that (unless it's something to do with the way we use the Windows GDI but I wo...

Re: CIE overcast sky

Hello, No that is not possible in SunCast. Suncast assumes a clear sky and produces an input file for Apache which has data for which surfaces on the outside of the building are shaded and which internal surfaces receive direct sunlight. Apache then reads the solar data input file from SunCast and u...

Re: Complex window copy and paste

Hi all, Yes, this means you can copy and paste on to other surfaces in other zones. Quick demo here: http://youtu.be/W9JabvZVvfQ?list=PLF6S9WDVHtgKvELfiezPTQw_umaRxGR72 I'm updating the ModelIT manual that will be online Mon/Tue this week. I'll also be looking at moving it out of just a key-in but w...
