Earth Day – Energy Simulation Plugins for SketchUpUpdated: November 7, 2013
Google SketchUp is celebrating Earth Day with the launch of a new website (I miss the old layout, the new layout is simply ugly) and some really interesting plugins for people that are into sustainability.
Created by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory for the U.S. Department of Energy, Energy Design Plugin is a free plugin for the Google SketchUp 3D drawing program. It models heating, cooling, lighting, ventilation and other energy flows in buildings.
Google SketchUp appears to be growing stronger every day, it used to be a simple 3d modeling tool. Anyway, Tuesday was Earth Day.
Happy Earth Day, you know, there seems to be some “special day” everyday, women day, labor day, mother’s day, father’s day, teachers day, blah blah blah, someone should propose – “No Day”, we need a break from all of these celebrations.
