AAC walls

Recommended Posts

Hello - I'm new here and am considering purchasing the Architectural software. Was wondering if it had an AAC (autoclaved aerated concrete) option for exterior walls? I want to design my dream green home and want at least the exterior walls in AAC. If the software does not have an AAC option, does it have concrete or can I set the material, width, and dimensions of the wall?  There is no need for insulation or dry wall...

 

Also, are there any tools to assist with a passive solar design?  Appreciate any advice. Thanks!

Download the trial and see if it works for you.

 

There is no AAC wall, but you can create a new wall type to represent one.

 

No passive solar tools.

Does the trial version have a time limit?  If so, I should wait until I have time to really play with it.

 

Although - if we can manipulate specs for walls - that will probably do.  Thanks!

No time limit that I know of. The only restriction is that you cannot save your work.

In addition to being unable to save the plan, the trial version also won't let you print, export images, or create walkthrough files.
