Hi Simon,

could you give some more information on the nature of that "complex 
spiral 3d shading system"? It would probably be intersting whether this 
is a light redirecting system, a solid structure or more like sheet, can 
be controlled or is static...

Cheers, Lars.

> Since the facade has complex spiral 3D curvy shading system I doubt the ability of EQuest or Energy Plus to model the geometry.
> Appreciate some insightful thoughts from all the members out there.
> Many thanks in advance.
