External Wall Directions (Free Case App for May 2012) (Updated)

This tool comes in as a request from the Passive House design community and solves the problem of reporting the external wall directionality in either text (N, NW, S, etc.) or by angle. The angle values use project North as 0 winding clockwise back around to 360. The resulting data can then be pushed into a user specified text formatted parameter. The angle option can be written to either a text or number formatted parameter.

Look for a future update that will include external doors and windows hosted within external walls soon (no promises).

This free add-in can be downloaded from the Case Apps website.

Update 5/8/2016: CASE and the CASE Apps website are no more but, courtesy of WeWork, the CASE Apps are now open source. They may be accessed on GitHub.
