This Chart displays the shading effects on Facades and Surfaces from surrounding objects and from self-shading. This Chart will only be displayed if Calculate Shading Factors has been turned on in the Building Manager. An additional Chart for Shading will then display.
Clicking into a Façade on the Chart will reveal the Surfaces within. This Chart may also be sorted by rick-clicking on any of the bars and choosing Order Descending or Order Ascending. In this way you can view the most shaded Surfaces on the model.
There is also a Shading Depth Chart which appears when the Shading Depth Tool is used (when a single Surface is selected only). This is covered in Section 184.108.40.206
Shading Charts will appear only if Calculate Shading has been included in the Building Manager before you get results (Download Solar Data)
The Shading Charts display the percentage of the selected Facades/Surfaces that are shaded. Shading may be caused by surrounding buildings, self-shading on the model or shading devices (canopies or vertical fins). It does not currently provide the area of the glazed zone that is shaded.
You may navigate or make selections using the Charts as described in previous articles (using the Facades List, click on areas in the model Viewer or select areas on the Revit model itself) . From the Charts, you may select a single Facade (all Surfaces within) or a single Surface. It is not possible to select random multiple Surfaces from the Charts (this may be done from the Facade Navigator or on the model in the Viewer).
