Xinaps Daylight Ratio Evaluator™, working as a plugin within Autodesk Revit®, automates daylight area checking of your BIM model. As a result, optimal design decisions can be made regarding floor areas, glazing, glass area, windows, brightness, darkness – and better working and living spaces are produced.
The Daylight Ratio Evaluator™ App:
Scans the BIM model and reports daylight ratio compliance against required minimums
Accepts input of required minimum daylight area ratio per room area
Calculates window-to-floor ratio based on LEED
Uses floor areas of rooms and glass areas of windows, doors, and curtain walls
Synchronizes with Revit®’s units of measurement.
Automatically adds and saves the daylight area ratio values per room in the Revit® model
Displays daylight ratio results
Creates a Daylight Performance Indicator in the Xinaps Building Performance Dashboard
Exports data in Word® and Excel® formats
Supports input for minimum height of window sill
Visualize daylight area ratios in your floor plans
Visualize daylight requirements in your floor plans
Xinaps Daylight Ratio Evaluator™ takes Revit® to a higher performance level. It is especially relevant to architectural designers and building engineers, but also useful to all the design team. The app helps meet sustainability standards while minimizing time and errors in the model. It enhances building model validation in preliminary design phase. For corporate licenses, send us an email.
