The Top 5 Extension for Energy Analysis and its Properties from SketchUp Extension Warehouse

1. nz_Sunshine

Visualize a Ray of Light, Solar Data, Sun Angle of Incidence.

Visualizes a ray of light along with some solar data including Sun Angle, Summer Solstice, Winter Solstice, Equinox, Latitude, Longitude, Altitude, and Azimuth is now also available Surface. The angle of Incidence, % Percentage Perpendicularity, HSA, and VSA are here. Sketch up is a great tool allowing you to determine solar entry, and much can achieve via Trial & Error.

However, it is more important to appreciate the physical mechanics of Light and Shadow so that you can more directly access viable solutions. Over the years, I’ve found that students and non-architects find solar charts and solar analysis a little challenging to grasp, at least in the first instance. Nz_Sunshine provides a visual representation of the relationship between the sun and, form, to further a grass-roots understanding of how shadow castings work. To this end, one can optionally display HSA (Horizontal Sun Angle) & VSA (Vertical Sun Angle).
