This extension allows ArchiWIZARD’s users to directly import their model (project) from Sketchup.
ArchiWIZARD is a real-time 3D analysis software based on BIM model directly connected to the architectural CAD solutions on Mac or PC.
ArchiWIZARD provides accurate thermal, light, solar gains and shadows analysis, renewable energy simulation (photovoltaic & thermal solar systems).
It embeds EnergyPlus building energy simulation engine (STD) to combine even more accurate building performance analysis still with the advanced usability of ArchiWIZARD user interface and interoperability capacities.
ArchiWIZARD has been evaluated for french regulation RT2012 compliance by CSTB.
From the sketch, for new constructions and refurbishment, ArchiWIZARD informs you about the relevance and performance of your architectural and technical choices regarding to energy performance, thermal and visual comfort, and bioclimatic quality.
It comes with numerous building elements libraries and easy-to-use configuration, results visualization and reports production tools.
Easily transfer from your design software to ArchiWIZARD
ArchiWIZARD allows you to work with both programs at the same time throughout your project. At the end of each design phase, the click of a button enables the sending of data from SketchUp to ArchiWIZARD
ArchiWIZARD saves your data setup during imports. All non-geometric elements are preserved (configurations, weather...) and geometric elements are synchronized between two imports
- Recognition of wall groups with the exception of sub-groups Geometric recognition of rooms : no loss of configuration for rooms that do not change geometry
- Recognition of openings (geometric)
Compatible with both SketchUp Make and Pro versions
