Solar Farm Planner
Solar Farm Planner is one of a kind technology demonstration of basic features in Autodesk® ecosystem for laying out solar farms on arbitrary areas on Google® Maps.
Using Forge™ platform, it is integrated with Autodesk® BIM 360® for better collaboration of users on a project and for saving a 3D mock-up of solar farms to BIM 360 Docs®, which can be displayed with Autodesk Forge Viewer™. The farm design process is just a few simple calculations (total number of panels, total weight, total kWh, etc.) combined with panels rotation and tilt on the area that may be a complicated polygon on the map.
The main features
- Data transfer with Autodesk services
- Google Maps manipulation
- Arbitrary polygon area
- Panel rotation and tilt
- Import/export of mock-ups from/to:
- Local drive
- BIM 360 Docs
- Adjustable farm parameters:
