The current build of the free technology preview of Daylighting Analysis for Revit expired today. David Scheer, SW Developer/Building Energy Engineer, sent me this note.
The Daylighting Analysis for Revit technology preview FREE analysis period will be extended to 2/28. Stay tuned for a new download in the next few days.
Thank you for the great feedback during the initial trial period of the Labs release of the Revit 2014 Daylighting Analysis (RDA) plug-in. We have taken your feedback to heart and are putting the finishing touches on an updated version of RDA to be released in the next few days. Your feedback has been so useful, we have decided to extend the FREE analysis period for another month so we can take the time to really get it right before a commercial release. You can find the blog posts about the feature here.
The Revit 2014 Daylighting Analysis (RDA) plug-in uses the Autodesk 360 Rendering cloud service to perform very fast and physically accurate daylighting analyses from within Revit. The RDA plug-in was specifically designed for architects to be able to use without learning the difference between the Perez or CIE’s sky models, direct normal incident, or direct horizontal radiation. The current technology preview has expired but we plan on posting an update in the next few days. When the update is posted you will find it announced on this blog as well as the Daylighting Analysis for Revit Autodesk Labs page.
Thanks to everyone who has participated so far.
Anticipation is alive in the lab.
