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

This video walks through how to use the Sefaira Daylighting Visualization in SketchUp to compare shading strategies for reducing glare.  A base case building is used as the starting point.  Two shading strategies are evaluated for their impact on glare and spatial daylight autonomy.  A simple comparison report is built from the data.  

The model used and example report are included below the video in the case you would like to run a daylight study on your own.
