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

This video walks through how to use the Sefaira Daylighting Visualization in Revit 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.  In the model, two Sefaira views were duplicated to set the visibility settings to display each shading option.  This enables the user to simply switch 3D views to re-evaluate the daylighting instead of switching on each option for editing.  This was not shown/explained during the video.
