energos documentation

Recommended Posts

In the process of working more and more with BIM in our office I recently discovered energos, which seems to be is generally a fantastic addition to vectorworks. Unfortunately I find the documentation somewhat lacking. I'm right now trying to add my custom window symbols to the system and I have found the necessary documentation here:

http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2018/eng/VW2018_Guide/EnergyAnalysis/Designating_Drawing_Objects_as_Custom_Energos_Systems.htm

 

and especially here:

http://developer.vectorworks.net/index.php/Energos:_Use_Record_Formats_to_define_energy_analysis_data#Window

 

The problem is there is very little information about what exactly the parameters mean and what their effect is. I have for example no idea what frame length is. Is it enough to simply add window area and u/r-value, or do I need to fill in glacing area, glacing length (?), orientation etc...

 

Thank you and best regards

Yves

Hi Yves,

 

we'll add more information in the documentation on this. While we do, please take a look at this for more information on the meaning of the parameters:
