Ver. 6.6.8 Shading Modelling Single vs multiple orientations

Ver. 6.6.8 Shading Modelling Single vs multiple orientations

Postby Dkraemer » Tue Feb 06, 2018 7:41 pm

Hello,

I developed an application in v.6.6.7 where I had a rooftop layout with five zones. Each zone had the same azimuth and tilt. As such, in orientations, I only had one which is fine as I only needed one. However, since upgrading, I now have five orientations all the same. Is there any way to have this be only one orientation again when the lot are all duplications?

Thanks,
Dkraemer

You can use the "edit orientations" feature under tools to remove all of the orientations, and then create a single new orientation where you add all of the different zones to the one orientation. Once completed and you exit the shade scene, you will update orientation parameters.

Thanks but this doesn't work.

When I try to create a new single orientation it seems to work, but when I leave the shading analysis, it still only shows 5 orientation. Doesn't seem to take.

What if you increase tolerance to say 20 or 30 degrees and identify orientations? You can also update the setting under project settings. Also try saving the project and reopening. Sometimes it sticks on a previous error message.
