Looking for options with regards environmental software

Postby Jules28 » Wed Jan 20, 2010 10:59 am

Our office is looking to purchase some environmental / low energy design software that will work with Revit.
The only product that I have found so far is Ecotect Analysis. Has anyone had any experience with this? And are there any other alternatives?

thanks
Jules

Ecotect is very good, BUT is has a steep learning curve and is VERY expensive. :cry:

We're thinking about the whole Ecotect thing too, so great advice James.

I think you get this free if you purchase Ecotect and you are a Subscription Member.
