Auto Distribute

2 minutesread

Auto Distribute will be available as an option, no matter how selections have been made (All Facades are selected / None are selected or multiple selections have been made).

Auto Distribute equalizes Solar Loads across the Mass model

Initially, a glazing percentage may be applied to the entire Mass model either in the Performance Manager or in the Energy Settings of Revit.

Auto Distribute works by equalizing the Solar Loads to all Surfaces that are unlocked in the Project.

Note: Surfaces that have been locked will not have their glazing percentages or Solar Loads adjusted.  Please see Section below on how to lock/unlock Façades or Surfaces.

FenestraPro will adjust the glazing areas on unlocked Facades/Surfaces only to allow the Solar Loads to be distributed equally across these Facades/Surfaces.

Varied Solar Loads on each Facade due to different orientations
Auto-distribute adjusts glazing areas to equalize Solar Loads on the model

Note: All unlocked Facades will have glazing areas adjusted in an attempt to equalize Solar Loads across the model.  All unlocked Facades will be affected, whether or not they are selected in the list. Even if selections are made in the list, these have no effect on the function.

More complex masses with smaller surface areas may not be able to reach the solar loads of other surfaces (increasing glazed areas will be restricted).
