Complete Days Worth of Solar Mounting Project Planning in Hours!
Helios 3D is a premier design software for utility scale PV solar systems for both ground and roof areas. This two-part software consists of database management paired with an AutoCAD-based drafting interface which can automatically place 3-dimensional solar racking in a 3-dimensional space.
Database Features »
Through its SQL database framework, Helios 3D supports:
Project Development and Project Layout with stored racking systems and modules
Project Engineering with bill of materials and post coordinates
Evaluation and Documentation with storage for Excel© and Word© documents as well as PDF and DWG files
CAD Features »
With state of the art functions, Helios 3D surpasses all other PV layout tools on the market:
Automatically calculated rack placement
Shadow object calculation at any time and day of the year
Terrain analysis and calculation of earth movement possible through Civil 3D
Field alignment and layout with row distance specification and row numbering
Terrain Analysis »
Using a Digital Terrain model, projects sites can be evaluated before valuable time is wasted in planning and construction:
Create a Digital Terrain Model using data from Google Earth, USGS, Surveyors Data File Report, or AutoCAD files with points and contours
Rapidly assess any particular tract of land to determine its suitability for the proposed project
Save time and money in planning and construction by recognizing terrain constraints in initial analysis
