Video: How to Use the Daylighting Visualization to Compare Shading Strategies in SketchUp

This video walks through how to use the Sefaira for SketchUp Extension's Daylighting Visualization window to compare glazing options and even guide towards LEED daylight acceptance.  

  • A base case building is used as the starting point, 
  • Some glazing strategies are evaluated for their impact on glare and spatial daylight autonomy,
  • A simple comparison report can be built from the data and images.  

An example model is included below the videos in the case you would like to run a daylight study on your own.
