[Bldg-sim] Revit and eQuest

The technique for importing files from Revit to eQUEST is outlined on
Green Building Studio's. website
(http://www.greenbuildingstudio.com/gbsinc/index.aspx).   They offer a
free trial of their on-line software which takes a gbXML file from Revit
Architecture or MEP and converts it to a usable inp file.  In my
experience with it so far, it is more useful early on when you most
likely have a very simple model.  Complex models (an architect's CD
model for example) with lots of overhangs, shading features and other
extraneous details seem to give it problems.  The potential is very
exciting though.
