  1. Hi Kassita, All web services used internally by PVsyst are listed here:
  2. Hello Debbie, This is not so simple. I tried to find a scenario: In the "List and management of objects" dialog (CTRL+G), select all your imported tables and change the origin to "Rectangle center": Select "East" oriented tables, and set the Azimut to -90°, and the tilt to the desired value (for example 30°): Select "West" oriented tables, and set the Azimut to 90°, and the tilt to the desired value (for example 30°): This will give you something that looks like dome structures:
  3. Hi Julmou, This is because you're using the trial version of PVsyst. Regards,
  4. Hi, Glad you found the solution to your problem. If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to consult our online help (https://www.pvsyst.com/help) or contact us by email at support@pvsyst.com.
  5. Hi Krunal, Since PVsyst is not CAD software, the tools to design and edit surfaces are limited. You can for example use the "Portion of Cylinder" tool to create a curved roof, but not sure if this suits your needs: For more complex surfaces, the best solution is to use external CAD software such as Sketchup, and import the model with a DAE or 3DS file. After that you can easily place your PV tables on the top of your roof using the auto elevation tool.
  6. Hi Jacob, Some variants can take a long time to load if they are complex and/or if they contain a big 3D scene. If you want to check if something is wrong in your project, please contact us at support@pvsyst.com with attached the exported zip file of your project.
  7. OK, I didn't understand that. So currently this is not possible, sorry. During transformation, arrays will always be ungrouped.
  8. It's really strange, I tried to reproduce the problem in 64 bit and 32 bit, but it works fine. Looks like the application freezes as soon as it tries to display the blue overlay to move the rows. Have you checked that your graphics card drivers are up to date? If you have several graphics cards, try to force the use of the second one with PVsyst: https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5035/~/run-with-graphics-processor-missing-from-context-menu%3A-change-in-process-of
  9. Hello, You're not doing anything wrong. This is just the name given by default, being array of '1' tracker. If this bothers you, you can simply rename your trackers by selecting them and right-clicking > Rename with auto-numbering:
  10. Hi Udo Z. In the shading scene construction window:
  11. For this kind of problem, I recommend that you contact our support service directly at support@pvsyst.com. Please attach the relevant files to your email so that we can test them on our side.
  12. Hi Mohamed, You can optionally model the site in the PVsyst 3D scene by importing your satellite image in the background (pay attention to the scale), and using the zone editing tool. But I think it would be necessary at least to know the model of used PV modules.
  13. Hi Garf, You're right, currently PVsyst cannot handle more than 8 orientations. You will need to group some orientations together (averaged orientations) so that you get 8 orientations max. To do this, you can use the tool for managing orientations in the 3D scene: FYI, we are currently working on a new major version of PVsyst which will allow you to have as much orientation as you want. This version is planned for this year if all goes well.
  14. Hi Raffaele, Unfortunately this is not possible. There is a way to change followers to single PV tables, but not in dome structures: Transform tracker to object: Then transform object to PV faces: I don't know if this will help you 🤷‍♂️
