Manage calculation time

In SunExposure calcultion time directly depends on the size of the model, on the number of surfaces to calculate and the density of sensors defined.

To use SunExposure more efficiently, we suggest:

  • to hide useless layers whose objects would not change SunExposure results (interior walls for instance)
  • to avoid selecting unimportant surfaces. Select all would work but would lead to the calculation of a large number of uninteresting surfaces
  • to use first a “simple” level of details to avoid launching longer calculation before the complete validation of the model
  • to avoid launching “Very detailled” calculation on all surfaces
  • to adapt the level of details to the size of the surface to calculate. A “Very detailled” level may be well adapted to Windows for example whereas it has little interest for a large outside area or a whole street
