ElumTools employs the same calculation engine as our stand alone software program AGi32 which has been an industry standard since 1999. AGi32 has been validated using CIE-171 and has been privately tested in countless real-world applications.
There can be potential differences in calculated values when comparing ElumTools results to those from AGi32. However, given equivalent input data, calculated values are within +/- 2% and computation time is similar.
Most discrepancies between the two programs can be attributed to modeling differences:
In most cases (surface geometry in) the Revit model is significantly different than the AGi32 model
