  2. Hallo Alex, ich habe ebenfalls die .3ds-Files heruntergeladen und ausprobiert und ja, keines der Files lässt sich in PV*SOL laden. Um solche Dateien laden zu können, benutzt PV*SOL intern einen Importer, der erst das .3ds-File in ein .obj-File umwandelt. Normalerweise funktioniert das auch. Ich habe gerade geprüft, ob andere .3ds-Dateien noch geladen werden können. Keine Probleme. Also habe ich Open3Mod geöffnet. Das ist ein kostenloses Tool, mit dem man 3D-Dateien anschauen und auch in andere Formate konvertieren kann. Das kannst du gern mal ausprobieren. Dieses Tool nutzt dies
  3. You're alluding to a tutorial that one of our partners did. Unfortunately, we cannot present external software programs in the PV*SOL Forum. I can only say that I personally use the c't tool ac'tivAid to make screenshots. In addition, these should be done in the best possible resolution for the monitor and also at least 30 from different angles!
  4. Extract Google Earth 3D models with Pix4D and PV*SOL premium 2018 http://www.valentin-software.com/services/fw/yt-tut-en/dl-pvsolprem-en [Full Traskript] 1. Create screenshots in Google Earth Pro 2. Photogrammetry with Pix4D 3. Import of the 3D model into PV*SOL premium First, start Google Earth Pro. For this video I chose a free-standing, relatively complex building in England. Here I enter the coordinates of the object. A 3D model is to be extracted from this object. First, I determine the size of an edge of the model.
  5. Hello James, could you please contact our support and, if necessary, also send the projects mentioned? I'll look into it then. Thank you very much. hotline@valentin-software.com Many greetings.
  6. Hello Stuart, yes, 400MB ist far to much. PV*SOL ist a 32 Bit application. So the maximum size ist 250MB and the maximum number of points is 500.000. But even this can be to much, if you want to do a fast planning. Make you life as easy as possible and reduce the files on a minimum. The greather a model file, the more time PV*SOL need to calculate for ex. the shading, because every single Triangle of the model now can evoke shading. We apoligize the empty message. Its a error. It says that the file ist too big. Many greetings!
  7. Hallo, ja, das ist ja schon eine nette Idee, die Sperrabstände in den Default-XMLs zu ändern. Bei den Randabständen ist das nicht so einfach, weil nur die Randabstände, welche geändert wurden, in einer Projekt-XML im Tempordner abgelegt werden. Diese nachträglich zu ändern, macht keinen Sinn, weil die Datei bei jedem neuen Projekt neu angelegt wird. Eine Möglichkeit wäre, sich ein Rumpfprojekt anzulegen mit einem Gebäude, welches überall die gewünschten Randabstände hat. Das gleiche gilt für das Montagesystem für die Modulaufständerung. Einfach anlegen und mit dem Rumpfprojekt a

Import des 3D-Modells in PV*SOL premium Starten Sie zunächst Google Earth Pro. Für dieses Video habe ich ein frei stehendes, relativ komplexes Gebäude in England gewählt. Ich gebe hier nun die Koordinaten des Objekts ein. Von diesem Objekt soll ein 3D-Modell extrahiert werden. Als Erstes ermittle ich die Abmessung einer Kante des Modells. Diese wird später in PV*SOL benötigt, um den Maßstab zu
  9. Hello, case 2 is clearly an error that has already been reported. If the building contains a completely closed attic, the shading simulation has difficulty in correctly determining the shading. You can see this by the fact that some shading values of over 60% are of course much too high. We apologize for that and we're working on it. In the meantime, please create the attics in sketchup as several broken walls if you have created the sketchup file yourself. This should fix the problem. In the first case, the model is constructed in such a way that the error not occurs. Please be awar
  10. Hello Martin, thank you very much for what you found out! I have received the files. I will try to reproduce that issue. Many greetings!
  11. http://www.valentin-software.com/services/fw/yt-val-en/dl-pvsolprem-en [Transkript] In this tutorial you will learn how to use photo matching to model your building with SketchUp and use it in PV*SOL premium. "You will need: - Two Pictures of the building you like to model - SketchUp Make or Pro - PV*SOL premium 2018" The pictures should be taken at a 45° angle from two opposite corners. Next we create a folder structure containing our project data. Create a new folder, rename it and create three subfolders "Models", "Images" and "Exports".
  12. Hello Francis, I am quite sure that your file has more vertices than the 500.000 which is the maximum in PV*SOL premium. There is a translation error in the message box. It currently shows no text. Normally it says that the file ist to big! You have to reduce the amount of points in Pix4D. Try to remain below 200.000 points. The bigger the file the more is the imperformance during the shading calculation etc. For the import of the other file formats PV*SOL uses the Assimp libary. The error shows you that the Assimp Wrapper was not able to import the file. Maybe try
  13. Hallo Martin, please send all project files and the complete model in a zip to our support team (hotline@valentin-software.com). We will try to fix that problem. Make sure that you have the textures too! If you can reproduce the issue another time. I would be very grateful if you could write down the steps and send them as well, so that we can fix the possible error. Many greetings!
  14. Hello James, first of all, we are very happy that they like this feature. Answer 1) Of course you are absolutely right! Since the Boundingboxes of imported 3D-models are rather rough, it can be difficult to push the models together. I have already added the feature for Release 2. Answer 2) Could you please send the project file to hotline@valentin-software.com, then I can have a look at it. Many greetings
  15. This usually has something to do with your system settings or graphics card drivers.In this case, a DirectX 9.0c feature is not supported, which is needed to display this 3D text.You could try to update your graphics card drivers or choose another graphics card. Please contact our support if the problem persists.
  16. Program options and presentation This tutorial gives an overview on how to customize PV*SOL premium for your needs. The program options and the setup of the presentation will be explained. After starting PV*SOL premium you can enter the options via the menu bar in the upper left corner. "User Data" and "Program Options" will both open the options menu on different sections. "Reset" restores either the default options from the installation or an user defined reset point. After clicking "User Data" the options dialog opens to the section where you can indicate your compa
  17. Hello Din, unfortunately we have not implemented any automatisms in the program for such complex roof structures. The first part has already been done right. The simple parts you can extract using a scetched polygon section as ridge. (You see that here: https://youtu.be/69xE3TgZo9c?t=3m3s) For the more complex sections, you unfortunately have no choice but to extract them as individual arbitrary buldings and enter the eaves height and the inclination of the roof individually. If all this has been done correctly, the top edges of the roof surfaces automatically result the ridges.

Anhand eines Beispiels wird gezeigt, welche für die Simulation eines Elektroautos relevanten Daten in PV*SOL eingegeben werden müssen. Anschließend werden die Berechnungsergebnisse für verschiedene Ladestrategien vorgestellt und diskutiert. Martin: Hallo, hier ist Martin von Valentin Software. Steffen: Und hier ist Steffen von Valentin So
  21. Hello LiamMay, yes this is a known issue. It will be fixed in Version 2017 coming at the end of October. In the meantime you could extrude a "Fireproof Wall" at the edge you are interested in. (see Screenshot1 ) A fireproof wall has an absolute orientation. You could use this value to orientate the module row equally. (see Screenshot2 ). You have to do this accurate and it works.
