Join Eric Chappell for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Sun & Sky for Analysis, part of InfraWorks 2017 Essential Training.
- You may not think of the Sun and Sky settings as…an analysis tool, but they can definitely be used that way.…Let's see how these tools can be put to use…to answer questions about your model.…I'll choose the Phase 1 bookmark,…which will zoom us into an area of the model…where we can see the homes, the trees,…the clubhouse, and those types of features.…So, let's say we're in a public meeting…talking about this proposed development,…and we have a concerned citizen asking about the trees.…After all, these are some fairly tall pine trees here,…aren't they gonna cast a lot of shadows on the homes…and will they place the yards of the homes in shadow…most of the day, preventing the grass from growing,…or just kind of creating a nuisance for the homeowners?…Well, thanks to the very accurate sun model…in InfraWorks 360, we can do an exact analysis of this.…
