View Full Version : non-thermal layers for shoebox modeling

Hi, When I create non-thermal layers in Ecotect and export them to GBS via gbxml they seem to get lost so heat flows through all surfaces instead of just the ones I want. Anyone?

Since GBS is an early modeling tool, one would hope to be able to model a single floor of a tower (as an engineer would do) as typical of most other floors. This requires a method of not allowing heat to flow through the top or bottom (which I referred to as a non-thermal layer which seems to get lost in Ecotect export/GBS import). This seems absolutely critical to quick energy modeling. Otherwise I'd need to model each floor of a tower.
