    I've just recently started creating energy simulations for projects at my job, and with the little experience and knowledge I have in the field creating energy models it was a daunting task. This plugin and the cooresponding web-app was easy to navigate, took no time to learn, and I could use it for all the projects that came though our office. Help-articles are valuable, results and accurate, and they keep adding new features that I didnt know we could even have automated. Everybody in my office is now using it!!

    Hi Sean, I do now :) I am the tutorial guy and my job is to help other use and improve the tools. Two years ago I had just started in the sustainability industry and was one of the first people to hear of, then join the cove.tool team. Literal novice to expert story! Let us know what you think about the new plugin.

    Loving the easy import process. No need to remodel!

  • Quick and Easy to Use !

    I've been using this app for the past 3 months and here are few observations:

    1) You can import your building geometry quickly by utilizing the REVIT plugin.

    2) It does an awesome job of getting the ballpark value for energy usage intensity for your proposed high performance building.

    3) You can also get the possible LEED points for the EAc2 for the proposed building. 

  • Must try!
