Ecotect & Weather Files

Learn how to get valid climate data into Ecotect using the Weather Manager tool. This data could come from the US DOE, Autodesk’s Climate Server, or other sources. The source shown in the video is Meteonorm. The video explains converting this data into the WEA format, adding data like rainfall, and loading the weather data into your project.
