IES’s specially developed Revit plug-in Toolbar allows Revit® Architecture and MEP users to import their 3D BIM model into IES’s software and undertake sustainable performance analysis. It works with version 2008 onwards and sits as an integrated Toolbar.
Drop down menus take you through the ‘Setting Model Properties’ process step-by-step. All you need is basic information on building type, construction materials, and heating and cooling system types, at either the whole building or room level depending on what stage you are at in the design process.
Access the different IES performance analysis products by clicking the relevant button. Each product offers different levels of functionality; whether you are an architect or an engineer, want top-level information or want to explore in more detail, there is a solution for you.
Investigate through analysis where substantial reductions in energy use can be realised and calculate performance against rating systems and regulation compliance.
That way the design team can take action right from the initial stages of the design process, quickly and easily, to investigate through analysis:
How to access the Revit Plug-in
The Revit plug-in is included in all IESVE software installations. If you already have Revit installed on your machine the Toolbar will automatically appear when you next open the application. VE-Ware and VE-Toolkits are designed exclusively for use with this plug-in to undertake early iterative assessments. VE Gaia and VE-Pro, allow you to edit model properties in detail, and undertake more advance analyses.
