I am trying to run Falcon on a conceptual mass that I drew in Autodesk Revit 2013.
However, if I try to start Falcon (as a plug-in in Revit) I get a warning that Falcon can not be run, because "A transaction or sub-transaction was opened but not closed."
Then I tried to load the mass into a project file via the Add-In tool 'Load into Project'. Then I got the warning 'No geometry available' (or something like that) and Falcon still would not run.
Could someone please explain how to solve this?
I am fairly new to modeling conceptual masses, so perhaps I did something wrong there...

Thanks for your questions. The current Falcon for Revit app is designed for solid geometry in Revit. Another option is to use the Building Maker tools to convert the faces on a mass to objects that exhibit a volume. For instance, one option is to convert faces to a wall. Following the conversion of mass faces to walls Falcon will recognize the geometry.
Viscosity and density are fixed to standard conditions for air in both Falcon and the Ecotect Wind Tunnel. If you need to look at something like water you can either try the Simulation 360 trial (models variety of liquids) or approximate it by similarity / matching Reynolds numbers.
