[Bldg-sim] Equest and gbXML import

For gbXML to eQuest, check out www.greenbuildingstudio.com ...
You can import the gbXML into GBS, then save as DOE-2 file.  However,
this DOE-2 file cannot be edited with eQuest wizards.  You'll need to do
all editing going forward in the detailed interface.  If you've not done
any projects yet with eQuest, there IS a learning curve that seems to
vary inversely with the cube of your overall level of computing
expertise ;-)  
So if the project is coming from Revit, be sure to check out IES
<http://www.iesve.com/content/default.asp?page=s97_1> .  Despite the
relatively spendy price tag, you may be time and money ahead in the race
to obtain meaningful results.

Subject: [Bldg-sim] Equest and gbXML import

Hello All,


I am a moderately experienced Equest user and a first time inquirer to
the Bldg Sim forum, and I have just been posed with a question from my
boss to which I don't know the answer.  Is it possible to import a gbXML
file into Equest? We are trying to collaborate our design efforts with
our client, an architect working in Revit, who has send us a gbXML file
to use for our energy modeling purposes.  Are their other software
suites that will convert gbXML to a regular Equest *.inp file?


I look forward to working with and contributing further with you all at
the Bldg Sim forum.


Happy New Year,



Josh Talbert
