Modeling a Double Facade

202 Views, 2 Replies

Hi,

 

I am trying to model a building with a second facade mainly used for shading. Any advice on how to do this? I am trying to use either GBS or eQUEST to do the modeling.

 

Thanks!

Hello,

The best way is to create a sepate area where you want the facade, but do not place a room or space in this area. This will export the surfaces for this area as shading surfaces.
