The number of photovoltaic panels is defined by the target energy intensity offset (kWh/sf/yr). This gives us two parameters for PV panels: the gross sf of the building and the solar exposure.<br /> <br /> The PV panels chosen are then arrayed by a base PV component (box morph). Remaining panels are arrayed with a glass skin component. Geometry is immediately modeled based on environmental data.<br /> <br /> The results are then exported to 3ds Max with Centipede. Some low-res animations are included in this video. The first animation shows the PV panels changing based on form. The following two represent a ribbon scheme (solar shading), and an aperture scheme (solar mass/fenestration).
