Project Falcon for Revit Wish List

My apologies if this thread has already been created, but here are some wish list items I came up with for the next update to Project Falcon for Revit Architecture:


  • Pause/Play simulation option to adjust settings faster
  • Dynamic flow lines in 3D - similar to Vasari/Ecotect Wind Tunnel
  • Ability to rotate XZ and YZ axis plane relative to model
  • Unit conversion options (mph, km/h)
  • Customizable comfort range and ratings associated with probe readings
  • Save view settings option (i.e. domain size and plane position lock)
  • Transparency option for simulation plane
  • Prevent domain size from resetting when something is changed in the view (ex: visibility settings, hide/show, graphic display, crop view...etc) - this is VERY annoying
  • Option to export animation of simulation
  • Create time period wind direction/speed presets based on weather file data and project location/orientation (ex: Dallas-Fort Worth, TX USA - Spring Season, Daily Average = 12.4 mph @ 178 deg)


  • Simulation plane will start showing "waves" of wind velocity that don't correlate to the model geometry
  • Revit will freeze up during alterations to settings (i.e. 2D to 3D simulation, Plane Orientation, etc)
  • Zooming in on simulation plane - the colors become darker for some reason and don't match the legend colors

Overall, I appreciate the integration within the Revit environment, but the tool has its limitations.  In general, I'd like to see more customization options and improvements to performance.
