The agenda

  1. Overview of gbXML by Stephen Roth

Stephen will present a brief overview of a pre-release of the next generation of the Ladybug Tools / Spider gbXML Viewer as linked to from https://gbxml.org/

  1. Presentation by Jim Spielbauer of Trane Technologies demoing the new TRACE 3D Plus desktop software using gbXML.


TRACE 3D Plus is a next generation building design and analysis software program that delivers faster, more accurate results through a seamless workflow that closely aligns with today’s building process: https://www.trane.com/commercial/north-america/us/en/products-systems/design-and-analysis-tools/analysis-tools/trace-3d-plus.html

  1. Presentation by Ben Welle of Perkins and Will demoing the new SPEED (Simulation Platform for Energy Efficient Design) web- and cloud-based software tool using gbXML.

SPEED is a web-based and cloud-based energy/daylighting/solar design and simulation platform for early design developed for architects enabling a 1-day turn-around from design question to a data-driven design answer.

  1. Q&A

I will be attending the seminar and will do my best to help answer questions.

And, by the way, when you see my friend Ben’s presentation you may have a feeling of deja vu. If the 3D visuals - both buildings and charts - look familiar it’s because I built a ton of demos that Ben’s team rewrote to work inside Perkins Will’s highly complex corporate cloud.


watched the webinar, it was very useful,
thanks for the announcement.
