Sliver space tolerance, definition and example

This post is a continuation of the first post on the parameter “sliver space” where explicava for serving. I’ll give the definition (in my view) and attach a video where an exercise to understand it better. Definition: width exceeding a dead space from which it will consider revit as added to a volume larger contiguous […]

Sliver space tolerance, what is it?

When calculating thermal loads must configure either the distance parameter “sliver space”, so that the calculation engine Revit as we interpret the model created. Revit will distinguish two types of walls, interiors and exteriors, the only way I used to distinguish from each other is: If a wall having spaces defined on both sides, is […]

Ground plane and project phase

We must never forget to check on that level has awarded the parameter “ground plane” in the dialogue of thermal load calculations, after review we will cause all the walls that are below this level are considered in contact with land like a conventional basement. Below is a brief video editing this parameter and the […]

“building type” settings

From the drop-down menu in the calculation of thermal loads, choose the activity that will go the building known as building type parameter (discussed in the post building type), we must know and know how to edit all parameters that make such activity, the this video is intended to show this issue. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=br9c_-5QD3s

Creating zones

Creating a project zona’s is important, since the areas, unlike the spaces are those with the most important parameters defining the study of thermal loads, such as the setpoint temperature cold and heat, or flow rate of air exchange. The following video shows how to create a zone.
