Is ArchiCAD likely to be compatible with the latest open source
initiative responding to Climate Emergency?

I have just opened a AC21 model to carry out an energy review to
discover that I no longer have an eco designer tab. The dongle is up to
date and carries a perpetual licence.When I look at the Energy Evaluator
tab from Design drop down the only thing...
Hi Just looking for some level of reassurance from other users regarding
the interface between EDS and PassivHaus. We have a small test scheme
which appears to achieve PassivHaus status using EDS calculation ( with
a bit of manipulation of the ventil...
Can anyone suggest a way in which glass can be given a texture ( ideally
solid fill say 50%) to enable shaded elevations to have shadow in black
and window glass shown as dark grey. We can only get vectoral textures
to work and they do not look very ...
Have been using this for about two weeks. Very impressed with speed of
computation but would like to know what assumptions are built in to the
function settings and also the assumed power and lighting consumptions.
Some of the evaluation configuratio...
I could not agree more. The stagnation of Ecodesigner Star is a missed
opportunity. We have lost faith in Ecodesigner Star as we often have
inaccuracies during the calculation phase and some of the assumptions
built into the analysis are flawed. We a...
Hi Ghaleb Thanks for your response, that is encouraging, but meanwhile
we are having to develop a useful method of calculating embodied carbon
in our buildings as part of the RIBA 2030 challenge. We are using the
embodied carbon data within the mater...
Thanks for that. We have managed to get any vectoral hatch pattern to
manifest itself on the glass in elevation view. However, ideally we
wanted a solid fill surface as the vectoral patterns dont give as good
rendition as the solid fill shadows that ...
I have done the same thing for rectangular windows, works a treat for
external or internal splay. havent tried with both sides yet. I was
hoping there might be an easier way than the slab SEO route but will
give it a go and let you know how I get on....
