[Plugin] Demeter - Energy Analysis in Sketchup

Postby mocathe1st » Mon Dec 31, 2007 10:55 pm

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to let you all know about our (Greenspace Research's) Sketchup plugin, Demeter.

Google have just written a blog post about this in the Official Sketchup blog here: http://sketchupdate.blogspot.com/2007/1 ... html#links

The Demeter plugin allows for energy analysis to be carried out on Sketchup building models in a matter of minutes. The plugin allows for the import and export of the GBXML file format, the addition of building attributes such as wall types etc and allows for Skethcup models to be sent directly to the Green Building Studio for instant energy analysis. All this in a snazzy 3D user interface.

We have just released a beta version of the plugin which is available at our website. For more information on the plugin, and to join the beta programme, please visit: http://greenspaceresearch.com/

All thoughts, error reports, ideas, welcolme.

I think a lot of people would be happier if the menu items were in a submenu, rather than directly in the Plugins menu. It's hard to know (especially when you have a lot of Plugins items) what is for Demeter and what is for other plugins.

In lieu of that -- or, even better, in addition to that, have a menu-generating system that is Organizer.rb compatible.

Hi Rick,

Thanks for your feedback and other help. I agree, the menu would be neater within a submenu especially when using many different plugins.

We've just released an updated beta version of Demeter that does this. The overall folder structure has been improved and the plugin should now be compatible with your Organizer plugin. It is also now compatible with the Mac OS X version of Sketchup and has had various other improvements.

The new version can be downloaded at:http://greenspaceresearch.com/demeter.html
