Energy3D Version 2.0 released

We are proud to release Energy3D version 2.0, available for download from our website. Energy3D is a computer-aided design and fabrication tool for making small model green buildings. This version added new energy assessment features that allow students to evaluate the energy performances of their  designs and investigate the effect of passive solar heating. Currently however, this energy assessment tool is limited to only 12 selected cities around the world.

The next release will feature powerful passive solar heating simulation that can be applied to a wide variety of settings ranging from a single family house to a dense urban area.

Energy3D runs on both Windows and Mac OS X. Java 7 is required. It may also run on Linux (some of our users actually got it to run on Linux), but it has not been thoroughly tested on Linux.
