Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Program/script/method to find total building height

Hi there-

Yes, I've written a C# script that extracts idf geometry and stores the information in a way that you could derive that information.  I hadn't intended on making it public, but I suppose I could put it up on sourceforge or something if you think it would be something that would be of value to use.  

It currently does not specifically return the building height, but it does have the facility to get that information without too much work.

Hi all,

I've searched the group archive and googled to no avail. I'm trying to see if anyone has written a script or knows of a program that will extract basic building geometry info from an IDF file or one of the EnergyPlus output files. I thought I'd see if anyone else has solved this problem before I try write a script to do it myself.

I specifically want to be able to estimate the total building height and number of floors.
