About this app
When it comes to sustainable design, calculating the embodied carbon of a building is crucial. Enter Carbo Life Calculator, a powerful Revit plugin that simplifies the process of determining the environmental impact of your designs. With just a single press of a button, this innovative tool automatically interprets your Autodesk® Revit® model and provides you with accurate and reliable data on the embodied carbon.
Ease of Use and Customization
What sets Carbo Life Calculator apart from other similar tools is its user-friendly interface and flexibility. You have the freedom to choose between using data from Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) or defining your own materials and values. This level of customization allows you to accurately assess and optimize the embodied carbon of your designs according to your specific project requirements.
Comprehensive Analysis and Visualization
Carbo Life Calculator goes beyond simple calculations by offering insightful visualizations of your embodied carbon data. With the ability to create "heatmaps" from the calculation results, you can effortlessly generate 3D visualizations that beautifully showcase the environmental impact of your design choices. These visualizations can be a powerful tool for presentations and stakeholder engagement.
Integration and Export Options
Another remarkable feature of Carbo Life Calculator is its seamless integration with Revit. You can export the embodied carbon values back as parameters into the Revit elements, allowing you to utilize in-Revit schedules and further enhance your design workflow. Furthermore, the plugin offers export options in CSV format, empowering you to create your own graphs and reports for detailed analysis and documentation.
Multiple Applications and Benefits
The versatility of Carbo Life Calculator makes it a valuable asset for architects, engineers, and sustainability consultants. Whether you need a quick quantity snooping tool, a reliable database for your embodied carbon values, or a means to compare various design options, this plugin has you covered. Additionally, it serves as a comprehensive tool to study and understand the concept of embodied carbon, enabling you to optimize materials and find low-carbon solutions.
Carbo Life Calculator is a game-changer in the world of sustainable design. Its intuitive interface, powerful analysis capabilities, and seamless integration with Revit make it an essential tool for anyone committed to reducing the environmental impact of their projects. With this plugin, you can easily calculate, visualize, and optimize the embodied carbon of your designs, ultimately contributing to a more sustainable built environment. Give Carbo Life Calculator a try and unlock the potential to create greener and more efficient buildings. Good luck!
