Arbitrary objects in simulation


Recommended Posts


Is it possible to place any objects that are not included in the PV-SOl 2018 premium version in some way, such as snow guards etc. I'm working on a project were snow guards can cause some shadowing on the solar panels and want this to be included in the calculation.

Hello Nils,

you can use any object in PV*SOL via the "3d model import". Alternatively I could imagine that the snow guards could also be shown as a wall in PV*SOL.



Further information on 3D import can be found here:

Kind regards,
