New to building energy simulation and have a couple of questions

Hi All;

I am new to building simulation modeling, very new. I am an architecture student and I'm trying to learn to use equest as a design tool. The project I'm working on has a butterfly roof, I'm am wondering if equest has the capabilities to model this roof type and how to go about doing it. I am also getting an error message (DWGdirect Error: Invalid Dwg Version) when trying to import a dwg to model over. I am using Autocad Architecture 2008 Student Version. Any help getting me started is greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Will Britt

I think you should save the dwg file as 2000/2004 format, and then import it into eQUEST again.
