ORUG Ecotect Meeting Notes

Thanks to all who attended our Meeting on a rainy Oct. 7th.

We were amazed by the Ecotect presentation by Olivier Pennetier of Symphysis from San Fransisco. Olivier explained how to use the BIM model to study solar radiation, light penetration even solar collector orientation. Right to light and view was also discussed with much interest. How to properly export a Revit model was explained.
One attendee asked how Olivier was able to access his files and commands so quickly. Olivier then explained the use of scripts in Ecotect and showed a sample.
some exampled can be found here...

We welcomed some some first time attendees and hope they enjoyed themselves.

Entire Imaging brought two detailed reproductions of a Roman Coliseum.
