Importing layout from CAD and interpreting as "domes"


Recommended Posts

Hello, I am able to import a 2D layout from CAD to PVsyst near shading.  However, I want to assign alternating East / West tilts to the modules, as in "domes".  I am not able to do this because the modules are coming in flat, but all with the same azimuth.  The only way to make them tilt in opposite directions is to change the azimuth, which causes them to rotate around their left corner references.  Does anyone have suggestions about how to do this?

Hello Debbie,

This is not so simple. I tried to find a scenario:

  1. In the "List and management of objects" dialog (CTRL+G), select all your imported tables and change the origin to "Rectangle center":

  2. Select "East" oriented tables, and set the Azimut to -90°, and the tilt to the desired value (for example 30°):

  3. Select "West" oriented tables, and set the Azimut to 90°, and the tilt to the desired value (for example 30°):

  4. This will give you something that looks like dome structures:
