6.2.2.7 Auto Distribute

2 minutesread

Auto Distribute will only be available as an option when all Facades are selected. Choose Select All in the Façade Navigator to see this button appear.

Auto Distribute to equalize Solar Loads across the Mass model

Initially, a glazing percentage may be applied to the entire Mass model either in the Target 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 6.2.3.6 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: 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).
