From the Autodesk App Store:

Solar Farm Planner is one of a kind technology demonstration of basic features in Autodesk® ecosystem for laying out solar farms on arbitrary areas on Google® Maps.

Using Forge™ platform, it is integrated with Autodesk® BIM 306® for better collaboration of users on a project and for saving a 3D mock-up of solar farms to BIM 360 Docs®, which can be displayed with Autodesk Forge Viewer™. The farm design process is just a few simple calculations (total number of panels, total weight, total kWh, etc.) combined with panels rotation and tilt on the area that may be a complicated polygon on the map.

The main features 
  • Data transfer with Autodesk services 
  • Google Maps manipulation 
  • Arbitrary polygon area 
  • Panel rotation and tilt 
  • Import/export of mock-ups from/to: 
    • Local drive 
    • BIM 306 Docs 
  • Adjustable farm parameters: 
    • Scale 
    • Panels number 
    • Weight 
    • Output power 
    • Etc. 

Create new solar farm design.

Navigate to the desired location and set the solar farm placement.

Select new solar panel mock-up and adjust its settings.

Adjust placement settings and build 3D mock-up of the solar farm.

The mock-ups will be available in BIM 360 Docs.
