Sefaira is joining SketchUp and Trimble Buildings
In 2009, Peter Krebs and I founded Sefaira with a mission to democratize the design of sustainable and high-performing buildings. From day 1, we aspired to transform the building design process, and we took an uncompromising approach as we sought to push the boundaries of what technology could accomplish for building designers. In particular, we wanted to empower architects with the most sophisticated cloud computing power, in order to deliver something that had never before been possible – real-time performance analysis (principally energy and daylight) of 3D building models.
In the building design community, we found enthusiastic support for our mission, and this is what propelled us forward as we built and released successive versions of our Sefaira software. It enabled us to build a great team that in turn created amazing software which today is used by more than 500 leading architecture and engineering firms across more than 40 countries. According to the American Institute of Architects, Sefaira is now the most widely used performance analysis tool by architects across the US.
We are proud of the result we have achieved, and thankful to our customers and partners who have championed us along the way. We couldn’t have done this without you.
Today we are beginning a new phase of our journey. We are excited to announce that – as of today – Sefaira has been acquired by Trimble, and going forward we will be part of Trimble’s SketchUp group.
At Sefaira, we have always seen SketchUp as a big source of inspiration for how we wanted to build software. A powerful design tool that “gets out of the way” and lets designers exercise all their creative skills. This is how we wanted to build Sefaira, and thus it was natural for us to develop a partnership with Trimble following their acquisition of SketchUp from Google in 2012.
Since then, Trimble has continued to invest significantly in the buildings space, creating many new technologies and investing aggressively to create a strong portfolio of offerings across the “Design – Build – Operate” continuum. In joining Trimble, we are now becoming part of an already large and rapidly growing family that has become a force to be reckoned with in the construction industry, and we are excited about the things we can build together.
Importantly, with Trimble and SketchUp, we are expanding Sefaira’s reach so that we can now bring performance-based design to designers everywhere.  
Although we are part of a new family, our mission continues unchanged. We are as committed as ever to deliver powerful software and outstanding customer support to all of you. Our goal continues to be making the implementation of performance-based design as easy as possible. And expect to see even closer integration with SketchUp, alongside our commitment to continued support of Revit.
Finally, a word of thanks to customers, partners and investors. You have all supported us on our journey so far, and what we have accomplished wouldn’t have been possible without you. Our team is looking forward to continuing on this journey with you and our new friends at SketchUp and Trimble. We are proud of what we have achieved to date. Thank you all for being a part of it!
And now, let’s get ready for the next chapter in the transformation of the building design process.
Onwards!

Welcome to the Trimble family, SefairaBy John Bacus

JB_Author.jpgSefaira: real-time performance-based design in SketchUp, and now a part of Trimble Buildings
[size=1.6]With SketchUp, we imagined a design tool that would stand out of the way and let designers get about the business of doing their design. A tool that was simple enough to be useful in the way that a pencil and straightedge are useful.
[size=1.6]But we need to acknowledge that building design has grown increasingly complex over that same period of time. The principles of good building design have grown from the traditional questions of program, form, space, and order to include the full performance of a building.
[size=1.6]The challenge with performance-based design to date has been in finding useful ways to do it early enough in the design process to really make a difference. Too often, critical design decisions are made during even conceptual design that unintentionally but adversely impact the ultimate performance of the building — decisions which are next to impossible to unwind once they are discovered.
[size=1.6]Luckily, there are smart people in the world who have recognized the importance of early-stage performance-based design and studied how to fold it into the real-time flow of exploring and iterating upon a design. These are our friends... now our colleagues at Sefaira.
[size=1.6]Today, I’m pleased to announce that Trimble has acquired Sefaira Ltd., a developer of industry-leading design tools for performance-driven design of buildings. Long story short, this means that Sefaira is now a Trimble product, joining SketchUp and the Trimble Buildings team. We’ve been collaborating together for many years and the time felt right to make the collaboration permanent.

What is performance-based design, anyway?
[size=1.6]Practically speaking, this acquisition means business as usual for customers of Sefaira Architecture and Sefaira Systems. They should expect to receive the same great level of service they have become accustomed to from Sefaira.
[size=1.6]Over the next year, Sefaira and Trimble will work together to integrate Sefaira more closely with SketchUp, 3D Warehouse and Trimble Connect—as well as with numerous products from Trimble MEP.
[size=1.6]Consistent with SketchUp’s track record of interoperability and Trimble’s commitment to openness, we’re also planning to maintain and improve Sefaira’s functionality for other CAD systems, including Revit.
[size=1.6]In the long term, we intend to grow the reach and capability of Sefaira’s product line, bringing the performance-driven design ethos they champion into the hands of more and more architects and engineers.
[size=1.6]Working with Sefaira, we think we can make a positive impact on the design of buildings. We’d like to make performance-driven design as quick and capable as SketchUp. Simple enough to be useful… and maybe now, useful enough to make a real impact on the built environment.

绿色建筑设计Sefaira 和 SketchUp Pro
绿色建筑设计Sefaira 和 SketchUp Pro

glyphicons_054_clock.png 十一月 13, 2012 glyphicons_003_user.png SketchUp 团队 glyphicons_065_tag.png BIM-SU, 室内设计, 建筑设计, 新闻, 景观规划

这个案例来自于我们的朋友: Sefaira, 在这篇文章钟, 我们将了解 Booth Hansen, 一个全国知名的建筑设计, 城市规划,室内设计公司, 如何使用Sefaira 和 Concept 插件(Sketchup Pro插件)在设计的初期, 创作的绿色建筑分析过程


Sefaira Concept + SketchUp Pro
绿色建筑设计

传统上, 热模拟和能量模型验证会在设计过程的结尾阶段操作, 使用Sefaira Concept, Booth Hansen公司能在建设设计初级阶段快速分析和评估“假设情况”情景这些场景分析提供给客户各种设计方案的相关节能效果使用 SketchUp Pro的Concept插件, Booth Hansen公司确保在设计初期可持续性分析, 并能正确反映出模型状况简单的来说, 这个插件非常明白门是门, 窗户是窗户,这样的就非常适用于 SketchUp Pro的动态组件, 以下是两个项目实例

Deming Place

在设计初级阶段可持续性分析的第一步是使用Concept plugin 导入SketchUp文件格式的建筑形体 , Sefaira Concept能自动确认模型的物理元素—包括地板,墙,窗棂,屋顶, 这样软件能给在选择不同设计方案时,提供实时的,交互分析结果sefaira Concept 在SketchUp模型中为能量分析分类几何体。如图, 界定方式仅在墙和玻璃之间。

Deming Place这个项目处于某段城市环境的中间地段,和两旁的相邻建筑共享隔墙Sefaira Concept最初自动把隔墙限定为普通墙面但是, 把这种墙面当成普通标准墙, 不能正确模拟外界空气的热传递。

Booth-Hansen-Figure-1.png

sefaira Concept 在SketchUp模型中为能量分析分类几何体。如图, 界定方式仅在墙和玻璃之间。



这个为SketchUp定制的插件可以让设计师在SketchUp中视觉化插件对于模型的解释, 可以调整解释,或者提供必要的额外信息在这个实例中, Booth Hansen公司的设计师选择推翻最初的指定Deming Place的边墙被选择,然后指定为隔墙, 这样就更能真是的代表真实环境状况呢

Booth-Hansen-Figure-3.png

如图: Concept 插件用于重新限定墙(这堵墙实际上是与旁边建筑共享的隔墙),现在Sefaira Concept 知道在场景中如何解决这些不同特殊处。


Sefaira Concept 使用隔墙来限定封闭空间,并做分析最终, Booth Hansen公司确定在这些墙面上没有重要的热传递发生.在这种假设下,两边的室内建筑被初步定位和Deming Place同样的室内温度

Chicago Botanic 公园儿童中心

芝加哥Botanic公园的儿童中心项目, Booth Hansen公司用一系列同心圆来设计建筑物地面这样几何体的有天窗的屋顶结构就很复杂

Booth-Hansen-Figure-5.png

如图是一个标准的SketchUp儿童中心模型。


为了保证能量分析是正确的. Booth Hansen公司设计师需要知道Sefaira Concept已经正确地限定和归类了建筑物不同的元素

Booth-Hansen-Figure-6.png

Sefaira Concept 关于模型的原始分析: 天窗屋顶分类为墙和平面屋顶的混合体


使用Concept Plugin, Booth Hansen公司可看到Sefaira Concept限定的天窗屋顶为墙和屋顶平面的结合体, 然后改正重新定义, 最后所有的天窗屋顶更正为”屋顶”

Booth-Hansen-Figure-7.png

使用插件后,屋顶被正确重新定义,这样的模型就可以开始做分析了.


一旦上载Sefaira Concept做分析, 改公司就能参数化操作屋顶表面的性能。(例如R值,和结构类型)

结果

在这些案例中, Booth Hansen公司能使用概念设计中的有限信息(例如基础的体块,地板平面,地段位置), 在设计方案选择的阶段,来估量不同方案持续性的影响特别是在Deming Place项目中, Sefaira Concept 和用于sketchup的the Concept Plugin插件为类似建筑的可持续性设计,帮助建立了一个最好的实际模型

怎么试用???

Sefaira!歡迎加入 Trimble 大家庭。  《Welcome to the Trimble family, Sefaira!》 “使用 SketchUp,我們想像一種設計工具能脫穎而出的途徑,以及讓設計人員用他們的設計獲取有關業務。一個足夠簡單的工具,就跟一支鉛筆和直尺同樣的有用。 但是我們必須承認,經歷相同時期建築設計成長到越來越複雜了。良好的建築設計原則已經從程序、形式、空間和秩序這種傳統的問題發展到包含一座建築物的全部性能。 最新的挑戰是一直在尋找有效的方式能儘早的進行建築性能設計,讓它在設計過程中真正發揮作用。往往,關鍵性的設計決策甚至是在概念設計期間做成,雖屬無意但對建築物的最終性能會造成不利影響——一旦它們給發現的話,這種決定幾乎不可能放鬆的。 幸運的是,世界上有些聰明人早已認識到在設計早期階段基於性能設計的重要性,並且研究如何將它合攏到設計探索與迭代的實時流程中。他們是我們的朋友......現在是我們在 Sefaira 的同事。  今天,我們很高興地宣佈,Trimble 已經收購了 Sefaira 有限公司,用於建築物性能驅動設計,為業界領先的設計工具開發者。長話短說,這意味著 Sefaira 現在是一個屬於 Trimble 的產品,加盟到 SketchUp 和 Trimble Buildings 建築團隊。我們已經共同協作了不少年,並且成為永久性的協作正當其時。” 〔作者:John Bacus, 2016-02-08〕  http://blog.sketchup.com/article/welcome-family-sefaira
