Error while determining shadows


Recommended Posts

Hello Johan,

first of all: That is a nice model you have got there! For presentation purposes this is perfectly alright. I don't want to be that guy, but simulating this is unfortunately beyond the capabilities of our current 3D, because there is no decision support as to which parts of the 3D model are important and which are not.

Any ideas how to solve this?

Simplify your model as much as possible for the shadow simulation to support the shading simulation.

Another approach might be to remodel the building from your drone model and add tree structures within PV*SOL (as you already did in earlier posts). Are you running a lot into this crash or did this happen with this specific model? Since there are a lot of holes in the model: The shading simulation does not like that at all.

How big is your model? If not too big, you might send it over and we can have a look at it to try closing some holes e.g.

Kind regards,
