Senior Building Performance Analyst and Associate Principal at EYP
"The Pollination Rhino plugin is the best tool for generating building performance analysis geometry. It has a ton of features for improving my workflow and is interoperable with all my analyses tools and methods. I now use it on all my projects."
Software Developer at PassiveLogic
"I just wanted to say I really appreciate [the Revit] plugin. After dealing with Revit’s default gbXML export (which was awful), the functionality in this model export is a breath of fresh air."
Building Simulation Manager at ECLEKTE COOP. V.
"Pollination Cloud computing boosting value is amazing! What would have taken 30 hours or might have never finished on my computer at all, only took 40 minutes to run!"
Sustainable Design Analytics Leader
at WSP Built Ecology
"I wanted to thank the Pollination team for their immense help with running our 62,000+ simulations in the cloud. It wouldn’t be possible if they hadn’t started innovating at the time they did. Our industry needs more innovators like them in order to be able to push the envelope in the work we deliver."
Building Physics and Sustainability Consultant
"It was amazing seeing that exporting a clean analytical model from BIM is possible using the Pollination Revit plugin. More importantly, its interoperability feature enables seamless data exchange with other building simulation tools for parametric modeling."
E.I.T, Performance Consultant at Cyclone Energy Group
"Pollination is the bridge energy modelers desperately need between architectural models and detailed energy simulations. The Revit plug-in enables us to export a model with little hassle, and then we can clean up the model using Pollination developed time saving commands in Rhino. Users are motivated to explain issues and ideas they have for software improvements because the Pollination team is receptive, nimble, and quick to make updates."
Director of Energy & Sustainability
at View Inc.
"Pollination has greatly improved my team’s productivity through scalable cloud computing and data management. The ability to schedule simulations on the cloud and free up local resources for other work is a huge time saver."
Sustainability Consultant at Stantec
"Pollination CAD plugins are huge timesavers for translating a clients’ architectural model into building performance analysis workflows. More importantly, its interoperability feature allows a high level of data exchange with many building simulation tools whether for parametric analysis or detailed HVAC modeling."
Founder at Studio GreenAarch
"Pollination has enabled us to perform validated and scalable building simulation without leaving our favorite CAD environment. Simultaneous design iteration with quick simulation, in the same interface, is not a dream anymore!"
Architect & PhD student at Budapest University of Technology and Economics
"Using Pollination is a brutal quality of life enhancement over OpenStudio and Grasshopper-based vanilla LBT by streamlining the model-building process and QA&QC on input geometry.
Thanks to the Rhino plugin, which is by far the most comfortable comprehensive energy modelling interface that I’ve used to translate Archicad geometry into BEM, I can focus more on solving the problems that matter in my research or practice."
Principal at Unconstrained Development LLC
"Pollination to me is the natural evolution of the already endlessly modular and hackable Ladybug Tools ecosystem. I can't wait to work on a project where multiple firms of varying responsibilities are collaborating on a single multi-use model via the Pollination Cloud!"
Ian Skor, PE
CEO and Owner of Sandbox Solar
"Pollination is an accessible and state-of-the-art tool for irradiance modeling. We worked with the team to develop a robust tool for advancing agrivoltaics and optimizing the co-location of solar and agriculture. The ability to input key parameters and run a robust simulation with a detailed analysis quickly has significantly improved our business' decision capabilities."
PhD Candidate at Bandung Institute of Technology
"I really enjoy using Pollination since the interface itself is no different from Ladybug Tools. Since I use Ladybug Tools for my work, the learning curve is not that steep. It is really helpful, especially when I am working with a large size building."
Graduate Engineer at Ramboll
"After using both Pollination Revit and the Cloud Computing, the productivity of projects I’ve been a part of has increased greatly. The ability to free up local resources via the Cloud has saved a huge amount of time, and the Pollination team have been amazing with their help. I intend to continue using these tool on many of my future projects."
Research Associate at Technical University of Munich
"I used Pollination Revit Plugin and cloud computing for my research about NLP-based semantic enrichment of BIM models for energy simulations. Pollination's cloud computing service not only offloads computing power to external servers but also enables a smooth workflow of a large number of simulations from anywhere, whether from abroad, traveling or from your own workplace."
Sustainability Coordinator at CannonDesign
"Pollination Rhino has a user friendly and intuitive interface for performing energy modelling. It allows customization in the familiar Rhino interface. The software has flexibility to perform energy analysis from the schematic design phase to LEED compliance. Facilitated by the plugins in grasshopper, it has proved to be a timer saver especially due to its ability to templatize workflow. The team behind pollination is a great asset because they keep the software updated to the needs of the industry. There are multiple resources created by this team to aid the learning curve required for the software."
Engineering Designer and BIM Specialist at Associated Engineering
"Pollination is future-proofing of designs and analysis. By allowing designers to use the tools of their choice, it is saving tens of hours per project in remodeling and rework in cases where a model already may exist be it Revit, eQuest, IES-VE or OpenStudio."
PhD Student at University of Sheffield
"I must say that I am very grateful to the Pollination development team for the tools and their support. They have been infinitely helpful and lifesaving. You have spared me at least three months of additional work! I was able to automate the process of running parallel simulations in the cloud from a Python environment which means I can see all the processes running live from my desktop computer."
