The following instructions describe how to perform in Vasari. Use these instructions to quickly create a baseline analysis that uses default energy settings. Then see the to learn how to modify the conceptual model and its energy settings to refine the design for improved analysis results.
Create a mass model.
You can load a mass family into a project for analysis or create an in-place mass directly in a project.
Add mass floors.
|In the project environment, select the model, and.|
Create the energy model.
|Click Analyze tabEnergy Analysis panelEnergy Settings. In the dialog: |
Click Analyze Mass Model and sign in.
|Display a 3D view of the mass model, and click Analyze tabEnergy Analysis panelAnalyze Mass Model.|
Analyzed elements display.
|In the Analyze Mass Model dialog, specify a name for the analysis, and click Continue. |
The current view displays mass zones and mass shades, and it temporarily dims elements that are not included in the analysis.
Click the analysis name.
|When the analysis is complete, an alert displays. Click the analysis name in the alert to view the analysis results. |
Or click Analyze tabEnergy Analysis panelResults & Compare, and select the analysis from the project tree.
Review the analysis results.
|In thedialog, view the analysis results.|
Make changes, analyze, and compare.
| the mass model and energy settings as needed. Then repeat steps 4-7 to run an analysis on the modified model. |
For a side-by-side comparison of analysis results, select multiple analyses and click Compare on the toolbar.
