Conceptual Energy Analysis Construction Materials Round 2 - @RevitClinic #Revit

Source: http://revitclinic.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/12/conceptual-energy-analysis-construction-materials-round-2.html

Special thanks to Jeff Hanson for the information included below; this documentation expands on yesterdays post:

Construction Type Materials

Each of these Construction Types are defined when the energy model is first created. To locate these materials, navigate to the following location:

Project Browser > Mass > Conceptual Constructions

You should see categories for Mass Floors, Mass Opening, Mass Roof, Mass Shade, Mass Walls & Mass Windows and Skylights:


To edit the associated material, right-click over the construction type in the Project Browser > Type Properties > Graphical Appearance. Here you can change the material as needed.


You can see the default assignments under Analyze > Energy Settings > Conceptual Constructions


On a related note, materials containing a surface pattern do not display the pattern when assigned to a conceptual energy mass model.
