I am finding some problem on this gbXML. According to Mr.GG, some green building software such as DOE 2.2 & eQuest (which is run on DOE 2.2) is able to read gbXML schema..(I am not sure what did schema means) but once I download DOE 2.2 & eQuest, I try to import revit gbXML over but DOE 2.2 & eQuest are unable to read or open or import revit's gbXML file format... Below are the hyperlink to the Mr.GG's story http://www.revitcity.com/forums.php?action=viewthread&thread_id=495 I did try to search online and managed to find an online project collabration site which provide tool called GBS (stand for Green Building Studio) for download. The site said that they are able to set up link between Revit gbXML file to be analysis online via DOE2.2 or eQuest software. only thing is it has to be done online only with the installation of GBS. Yet to try on that. maybe you can start of and let me know how it works..iPang. Again, DOE 2.2 is eventually run on US weather database, so I am not sure whether it can help in other countries outside US.

A XML Schema is an alternative to a DTD Document Type Definition used to describe a structure an certain type(like gbXML, MathML, XHTML...)of XML-document has to conform to. http://www.w3.org/XML/Schema http://www.w3schools.com/schema/default.asp And here is an explanation to why use Scema instead of DTD(it better to use buildning databases): XML Schemas - Why? There are a number of reasons why XML Schema is better than DTD. XML Schema has Support for Data Types One of the greatest strengths of XML Schemas is the support for data types. With the support for data types: * It is easier to describe permissible document content * It is easier to validate the correctness of data * It is easier to work with data from a database * It is easier to define data facets (restrictions on data) * It is easier to define data patterns (data formats) * It is easier to convert data between different data types Here you can reaad a little more in a .pdf about gbXML and green building studio: 207.97.194.107/downloads/revit_gbs_tutorial.pdf Here is another link with a little about gbXML and more about XML on Revitcity I have written: http://www.revitcity.com/forums.php?action=viewthread&thread_id=520 In Revit 6 you can save as gbXML - green building XML: Here you can read more about gbXML: http://www.xmlmania.com/news_article_1274-HVAC-Industry-Standardizes-on-gbXML-for-Building-Design-and-Engineering.php And here: http://www.squ1.com/index.php?http://www.squ1.com/ecotect/ecotect-home.html But gbXML is not for saving a whole building, but there is another XML-STANDARD called X3D. Why not implement it intor Revit 7 so you can get a STANDARD for 3D and CAD models/drawings? If you can save the building in X3D then you can translate it into SVG another XML STANDARD used for 2D drawings and more... eg. animations.... So you can animate!!! your building components to explain your drawing to the public. And then there is the XML standard SMIL for mobiles... so you can distribute your animated drawing tio the building site with a little sound to explain to the builders your intentions...

To be able to export as gbXML you have to place room-tags in the rooms of the building. Go to Drafting > Room Tag to be able to do it. And you have to use a 5digit number you write in under: Settings > Project Information > Project Adress Then gp to File > Export > gbXML and you get a file with extension xml You can open it in Notepad or in your browser IE or Mozilla or... And you can have a look at the data that e.g. can be used of green building studio Here is another adress: http://www.squ1.com/index.php?http://www.squ1.com/ecotect/ecotect-home.html with a lot of stuff

Our architectural design has a special shading on the windows, which we had to create as a custom Revit family. I a m trying to export this family to gbXML to work in IESve; but the shading doesn;t get exported. Does anyone have expereince on this issue? How should we create the family so that it easily get exported to gbXML?

Can we add a "Room Bounding" parameter to a Revit family from Family Editor?

Thanks,

--amir

You need to create the shading devices as in-place wall or roof category, because IES only reads shading devices using those categories.
