loadmodeling.tool enables engineers to enter in an unlimited amount of detail into a projects load model. This is critical for final selections and system sizing as teams produce their construction documents. However, the platform is also optimized to provide quick answers with minimum inputs. Here are some examples of these quick automated workflows.
'No touch' Room by Room Results
Create a new project defining the building type, location and energy code
Import or create the building geometry in drawing.tool
Export geometry to loadmodeling.tool
Bypass all input pages and simply run the model from the Settings Page
Following the above workflow our platform automates the following settings to provide Room level results.
A standard template based on the building type is applied, this is shown on the properties panel next to each room name & number
Zones are automatically created in a one-to-one fashion with the rooms
Zones are assigned to the Ideal Air Loads system by default
The above workflow can be modified by adding any level of additional detail required. For example additional default templates can be assigned in drawing.tool, or the single default template assigned can be adjusted via the Room Templates. Any of these optional steps will further refine inputs and the resulting sizing information.
