2021 Workshop

Time 8:00-10:00 AM CDT

Real-world building simulation workflows with Pollination + Ladybug Tools

In this workshop, we will showcase workflows for streamlining environmental building performance simulation using Ladybug Tools Grasshopper plugins (https://ladybug.tools) as well as Pollination cloud computing and its Revit and Rhino plugins (https://pollination.cloud). The workshop will be a combination of presentations and hands-on tutorials that go over the sample files and highlight the best and the latest of the features.
