Hi,

Has anybody got access to AC models of environmentally sustainable items such as solar panels, wind turbines, battery packs, water tanks, efficient light bulbs (LED), etc? I use these in my buildings and I have been bodging them up in my AC models for years but was wondering if there are some smart library parts available somewhere???

Thanks in advance.

bodging is to make in a clumsy fashion. As in "struth mate you are bodging that!"

Not to be confused with "bludging" which is to sponge off another and take advantage without offering anything in return.

I was almost certain bodging involved warm beer and peat.

Thanks! Sounds similar to 'futzing'.

Beer, gravy, bodging and futzing. Sounds like a good night.

Its a shame there are no library parts for ESD items out there in the archicad world ether.........

I will have to stop being lazy and make my own when I get the time!

Rakela,

Thanks for that. I did a search before and couldnt find a solar panel but it is now found.

I couldn't agree more about the need for a 'solar+wind+geothermal' lib in AC. We shouldn't just be doing pretty CAD models we should also be leading the field in the installation of environmentally friendly building services and designs.

My personal aim is to try to make as many buildings off the traditional services grid as possible.
