Autodesk Insight

BIM integration

Enlist the power of FormIt Pro and Revit to automatically create energy models. From early concept to detailed design.

Daylighting analysis

Simulate, calculate, and visualize key daylighting metrics. For example like daylight autonomy and annual sunlight exposure. (video: 37 sec.)

Reliable performance data

Gain insight into energy, heating, cooling, daylighting, and solar data. Use established simulation engines.


Whole building energy

Capture whole building and system interactions with full dynamic thermal energy simulation. We make use of DOE 2.2 and EnergyPlus.


Solar radiation and shading

Calculate incident solar radiation per building surface, PV potential, and payback period.


Heating and cooling load

Peak space by space and total building heating and cooling load calculations through EnergyPlus heat balance method.


Cloud credits

This service uses cloud credits—a universal measure across Autodesk consumption-based cloud services—to perform certain tasks in the cloud. Customers may receive cloud credits when subscribing to Autodesk products. Cloud credits are also available for purchase.
