ElumTools is a Revit add-on that is a powerful photometric calculation tool. But sometimes it's a challenge to get the photometric modeling results you expect from your Revit software. This class will cover creating lighting families that calculate properly using ElumTools, including placement and orientation of photometric webs, general use versus emergency calculations, and switching. By using the Luminaire Manager and Photometric Instabase, we will demonstrate how to model the correct luminaire in the correct orientation and conditions.
