Avoid Self-Shading Panels


#1

 

 

Working on a free-form roof that will have PV panels on portions of its surface (shown here continuously for testing). Since they’re PV we don’t want them to self-shade (if they do they become less efficient if they work at all).

I’ve got a test panel that points where I want (thanks Zach), now I need to figure out how to tell Revit to place them… something recursive no doubt.

Any thoughts?
