Hi!

I would like to know:

1. if it is possible to edit or personalize the reports generated by EcoDesigner STAR like the font style, size, color, etc...?
2. Does the energy simulation work on thermal blocks that contain hotlinked elements?
3. Is the report generated by EcoDesigner enough to be shown as proof for LEED accreditation?
4. How should Thermal blocks be done properly because I am encountering errors such as thermal blocks do not contain structures or elements, or zones have errors (but the error is not specified)? So the energy simulation fails every time.

I would greatly appreciate help and answers. Thank you!

you can alter some of units and modify the header from the PDF but not font style, size, color, Perhaps this can be added to wishlist to GS ED* development team.

yes it does.

Not with the Energy Evaluation tool, but Graphisoft will be releasing EcoDesigner STAR and it will be used to support some credits(i.e) EAP1, C1 in LEED Certification.

Try to update the zones or find out if you have entered all the information correctly, such as R(U) values.

Thank you very much!

Though with the font style, size and color, I was able to change it when the report was generated. I used EcoDesigner STAR for ArchiCAD 16.
