[EnergyPlus_Support] Beta Test: EP-Quick - An EnergyPlus Input File Generator

Please participate in the beta test of EP-Quick.  EP-Quick 
is a simple program that creates an EnergyPlus input file.  
You may use EP-Quick to create an input file for a 
building, without HVAC, using simple templates for the 
shape and zone layout. EP-Quick is not a full interface for 
EnergyPlus but simply a way to generate input files 
The installer may be downloaded from:


To use it, press the "NEW" button and select a template and 
the types of floors. I am planning on having additional 
templates by the time it is released. Once a template is 
selected, zoning and shape are fixed but the overall 
dimension of the building can be changed.  The buildings 
are "prismatic" and are the same shape and size on all 
floors.  Windows and doors may be added and constructions 
and schedules may be modified.   

Use main "tree" interface to examine and modify the many 
different details of the building.  The main parts of the 
tree are:  

+ Overall Geometry - depth, width

+ Building - roof, floor, interior constructions

+ Defaults - default values used in "Floorplans" 

+ Internal Gain Types - lighting, people, schedules

+ Floorplans - zones, exterior walls, windows, etc

+ Corners - locations of the building vertices

+ Roof corners - locations of special roof vertices

Please take a look at the software and the resulting IDF 
files. Your feedback is welcome on:
