One consistent request from folks running Revit and using PHPP is a way to export surfaces from Revit (or any other BIM software that can export an IFC formatted file) directly to PHPP. This was once possible with some expensive Revit extensions but will now be much more straightforward and inexpensive with BIM2PHPP. As we are an engineering practice focused on building science we have standardized on Sketchup but it is good to finally have a solution for my Architect and CAD jockey mates to be able to skip Sketchup and jump directly into PHPP. Note that with the release of designPH 2.0 they will miss out on the awesome shading improvements but that’s the choice.
“bim2PH is the new BIM Tool developed by the Passive House Institute, which aims to allow data entry in 3D BIM software and transfer information for the energy balance calculation and efficiency design into the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP). Based on the IFC format as data interchange format, a platform independent interface concept has been developed. “
