With ease of use and faster simulation times at the heart of this release, VE 2018 brings greater capability and increased functionality that’s both in line with industry developments and in response to customer feedback. Take a tour of all the latest features below.
IES have included the TM59 design profiles in our Profiles Database Manager. Users can create a new project using a pre-supplied project template which contains all the necessary profiles in compliance with TM59.
Steps to import modelling data into the VE have been simplified and enhanced in response to industry needs and customer feedback. Users can now also export modelling data.
The new VE start-up interface offers a quick start approach and quicker access to IES content.
Automatic visualisation of compliance for Criterion 3 saves time with quick, visual, automatic feedback.
All RadianceIES results data that can be shown on a working plane within the ModelViewer.
ApacheSim is now up to 85% faster using the new parallel simulation mode.

Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system modelling compatible, integrated, and consistent with detailed HVAC modelling in ApacheHVAC.
New explicit modeling of Domestic Hot Water (DHW) within ApacheHVAC when using the ApacheHVAC Methodology.
The various enhancements for VistaPro improve overall efficiency when reviewing and anaylsing results. Most enhancements are based on direct requests from VE users.
To enhance the workflow we have improved the RadianceIES interface and added new output options.
The ModelIT enhancements will improve workflow and productivity for users.
