Autodesk® Ecotect® Analysis software is a comprehensive concept-to-detail sustainable design and analysis tool, providing a wide range of simulation and analysis functionality to improve performance of existing buildings and new building designs.
Online energy, water, and carbon-emission analysis capabilities integrate with desktop tools for visualizing and simulating building performance within the context of its environment. Users can interact with powerful 3D feedback to explore factors such as solar, shadows and reflections, and daylighting. Customers who purchase Autodesk® Subscription for their Autodesk Ecotect Analysis license can access the web-based* technology available through the Autodesk® Green Building Studio® energy analysis service to more quickly evaluate multiple design alternatives for energy efficiency and carbon neutrality.
This software program delivers a wide range of simulation and analysis functions. Desktop tools, enabling designers to conduct detailed environmental simulations and visualize results, and access* to the web-based whole-building energy, water, and carbon analysis capabilities support more sustainable designs. Core features of Ecotect Analysis include:
- Interactive 3D displays simulate building performance in response to environmental factors
- Solar radiation, shadows and reflections, shading design, and visual impact studies
- Detailed weather, energy, water, and carbon-emission analysis (via web-service tools) that helps enable faster evaluation of multiple design alternatives
- ENERGY STAR® scoring and analysis of potential for LEED daylighting credits
