This white paper from Autodesk is the first in a series of papers exploring the usage of the Revit platform to facilitate faster, more accurate Building Performance Analysis (BPA). This paper covers the conceptual process of converting your Physical Revit Model to an Analytical Model for BPA, as well as the best practices for constructing the Physical Model in Revit for proper transfer to BPA applications.

If you are working with Revit models for Building Performance Analysis I strongly recommend that you download and read it – it’s a quick read, but full of good information! It  is applicable for Ecotect, IES and as well for exporting to gbXMl.
