cove.tool lets you translate 3D models from Revit into analysis-ready geometry, saving you hours of remodeling. The latest update to the Revit Plugin provides users with the ability to export geometry from linked models, enhanced error reporting, a new "refresh cove.tool views" feature which allows you to automatically update your cove.tool geometry with any edits made to your Revit model, and new "combined previews" that enable you to visualize your cove.tool geometry before importing from Revit.
This 60-Minute masterclass outlines expert tips and tricks for the Revit plugin and shows you how to get the most out of the updates and added features. It walks through the workflow, from setting up your model, to bringing in your simple or complex 3D geometry from Revit to cove.tool for performance modeling. It shows you how to run specific analysis types (Daylight, Glare, Shadow, Radiation, Views, COVID, Energy, Carbon and Water) on your Revit project.
