Visualise window reflections

Postby roborob » Tue Jun 04, 2019 7:32 am

Hello.

I have a several storey building with an internal courtyard and almost 100% glass facade. We are doing some initial calculation/visualisation and would like to show how much light would be reflected from one side of the courtyard to the other. In the visualisation mode is there a way to show these reflections?

Thanks,
Darren Flight

You can use the Sunpath diagram option. Please see link below for more information.

Thanks, but that does not really do what I need (or I am undestanding it wrong or have an older version of the software). See attachement - I was expecting to see a lighter area where it is marked in blue.
