I am using energy plus on a pilot project ( a passive house using low carbon emission material). I have read the documents attached that are related to energy plus and was able to navigate between open studio and energy plus. But I am not sure what are the limits of each software, as I am relatively new to energy modeling. I would appreciate your support or advice, on whether to use Sketchup or Revit. And if I limit the work on either of these softwares to get the geometry or should I be assigning the material in Revit or sketch up? In regards to open studio, since a lot of input overlap with energy plus, what are the recommendation in this regard? Is it better to insert the assumptions in open studio or energy plus?
