New Insight Plugin Release Features Daylight Autonomy

From the Insight 360 blog:

We’re squeezing in one more release this year! There’s a new version of the Insight Revit plugin available today, and we encourage you to get it today.


If you’ve upgraded to Revit 2017.1, then you already know about the built in Energy Optimization panel that provides access to energy analysis capabilities of Insigh. The new plugin for Revit 2017 will update the Insight panel with EnergyPlus heating and cooling loads, solar analysis, and new lighting analysis options. In addition to previous LEED and custom style lighting and daylighting analyses, you can now study daylight autonomy (specifically LEED v4  EQc7 opt1) and direct solar access. Be sure to check the follow up blog posts that will dive into each of these workflows.

You also now have the ability to store multiple lighting analysis results with a single model. When an analysis is complete, be sure to save your model, and you’ll be able to recall any saved analysis results.

Download the new Insight plugin for Revit 2017 here, let us know what you think, and have a restful holiday!

The Insight 360 add-in is brought to you by Autodesk. It's free, though actual analysis requires the purchase of cloud credits.

This add-in is compatible with Revit 2017 and 2016.

There's more information available on the Insight 360 blog.
