Join Scott Onstott for an in-depth discussion in this video Simulating sunlight, part of AutoCAD 2013: 3D.
In this lesson you will simulate sunlight by turning on the sun and selecting a …location for the project on the earth. By choosing a date and time of day, the …position of the sun in the sky will then be calculated. …Open the Rendering Two Project File. Type V Enter. …And go into the C1 view by double-clicking it here. …Click OK, and then on the Render tab, click Sun Status to turn on the sun.…
Here you get a warning that asks you to turn off the default lighting. …This is recommended. Because normally when you're working in …the model, and the sunlight is off, there are default lights which are used to …illuminate the surfaces. But now because we're making a more …realistic simulation, we should turn off the default lighting. …And display the sun only. Next we need to set the location of this …site on the Earth. To do that, click Set Location.…
You can either import a file from Google Earth. …You can use Google Earth actively to locate the site. …Or you can enter the location values completely within Autocad. …
