    VW 2020, Energos, does it work? Is anyone using professionally? Given the historic lack of information or responses to questions coming from VW inc.... Is there an employee out there in 2020 willing to talk about the status of this module with any specificity? or is it another half finished Vectorworks tool?
  3. Hi All, Our practice has recently signed up to 'Architects Declare', and we're trying to take this commitment seriously. Some of the declarations we (and many other architects) have signed up to as part of this: 'Include life cycle costing, whole life carbon modelling and post occupancy evaluation as part of our basic scope of work, to reduce both embodied and operational resource use.' 'Accelerate the shift to low embodied carbon materials in all our work.' 'Minimise wasteful use of resources in architecture and urban planning, both in quantum and in detail.' In light of this: 1- Is there any plug-in, module, or functionality, which would help us to calculate embodied carbon in our Vectorworks models? (Or by exporting our Vectorworks models/data from our models). For instance, Hawkins Brown have created a Revit plug-in to help with this. Is there a Vectorworks equivalent available, or in the pipe-line? 2- As above, but for life cycle costing/ whole life carbon modelling 3- As above, but for linking Specification of materials to Vectorworks models 4- Is the Energos module useful/accurate? And is it still being developed? There is not much information available on this online, apart from a few short videos (mostly from 2016). If anybody has used this a detailed review of its capabilities, and maybe a real life use example would be great. Quite a broad question, generally we are trying to get a handle on any tools we can use to help us evaluate and create more sustainable/ low energy use/ low embodied carbon buildings. Thanks! A
  4. Hi guys, Working on my first worksheets ever...in one of my first fully 3D drawing...learning BIM...and I love it! I have few questions on the way: 1. Is there a way to retrieve 'orientation' value from energos - building envelope - window/door/roof/slab/wall...for worksheet? I found energos label information available through 'records'...and some others through 'functions'.. but haven find this one yet. 2. Can I call up net area (without window/door..any openings) of facade 'orientation' awar? Lets say facade facing south has this amount of surface area while east etc...and sum opening area for same orientation is ...square meters VW has this information somewhere on background... 3. Can be particular object in one room be aware (through space object) of which space - room it belongs. I would like to show in windows/door (and maybe other) schedule where it belongs to what room...I guess we could apply this to other situation too like what and how much room finish belongs to what space... 4. What would be the easiest and most sustainable way to get this information. I am trying to add some text description to each individual component of my styles...to provide more information than the name of particular component. Do I need to attach some records...? 5. Can I retrieve some data - value from other worksheet within one file...I mean active link to some cell with sum values and use it for calculations in other worksheet? 6. (Not worksheet related one)What is the way to force VW to keep my default lists be my first and really DEFAULT (list like Lambda value, system lists etc...). I see that they will not stick default across whole vw...with some exemption. I miss this especially in energos environment where are many different lists to fill in different systems for building and 'users' will not stick first. 7. Why energos will not use my document custom units (m², m³) but use sq m, cu m etc.... Thanks a lot for reading this long list and for any advice or help. Much appreciated.
  5. I am interested to make contact with any Architects / Designers based in Europe who are using Vectorworks and the Energos Module in any form to design a Passivhaus project. We are interested to see how you use Energos in relation to the Passivhaus PHP. Please make contact via the community board so that we can start a dialogue on this.
  6. We need to make more visual presentations to sell energos to our clients this software is an example http://sefaira.com/sefaira-architecture/
  7. what does, this mean, ? "the total space relevant floor area is zero" where can i get more info on how to check my model? my model attached thank you SMOKEHOUSE_model.vwx
  8. There seems to be a fundamental flaw which renders the Energos module very difficult to use. Are there are deficiencies in the way it is implemented or are we missing something. I have reviewed this with Jonathan Pickup and we have both come to this conclusion. If you look at Energos Project Settings and USAGE you will see only Residential (very limited options) If you look at the Energy Analysis Folder in the Libraries you see many other usage settings - hotel, ;ibrary museum etc. However there is no drop down list to allow you to select anything apart from residential. A similar situation appears for SYSTEMS where a search of the Energy Analysis folder shows many varied systems. So my question is how do we address what is in the library from these windows? We can accept that country specific data is then required for a project to be drawn but the setup leaves much to be desired.
  9. Hello: I have a building with several insulated interior walls and so wanted to create a new "Object Boundary Type" as shown under Edit Wall Style -> Insertion Options -> Energos. I have created a new type, but I cannot figure out what the parameters R S External and R S Internal are used for. Even the units are confusing, sq ft F h/Btu. What are these parameters used for? Thanks in advance. Edit: After a bit more googling, these units appear to be inverse heat transfer coefficient, but what I cannot figure out is why this additional value adding to lambda and R/U values. What values should I use for interior walls? Interior meaning two conditioned spaces on either side of an insulated boundary. The wall style has a lambda value determined by components.
  10. I vote for a global Materials System in Ressource Manager. That will hold all Building Material Info in one Place. That will be needed for Classes or Components of Architectural Plugin Objects or finally IFC Export. Things like Energos Values, Weight, Render Texture; Hatches, Fill Color, Fire withstand, ... and lots of Custom Data fields for Prices, Manufacturer, .... And maybe extra Multiple or Sandwich Groups of those. And lots of Preset Libraries. Reason : That way we have to set these values only one time when we create Wall/Window/Door/ .... Styles.
