Unique VE Customisation to Maximise Productivity
The VE Python API allows you to import and export data from VE models and export data from results files using the Python programming language. You can use this to create your own customised scripts to automate reports, data input, parametric simulations and many other tasks. Reduce the time spent on tasks and define workflows & Navigators that are bespoke to your needs.
In addition to this, the new IES Content Store allows you to download and share python scripts created by IES and other IES users around the world. The IES Content Store contains other resources to maximise IESVE productivity including, scripted profiles, formulae profiles, templates, HVAC prototypes and weather data.
The Python Scripting tool has two main features: the Python Console or Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and the Python Navigator.
The Console IDE allows users to create their own scripts and promote them to their own Navigator, while the Python Navigator allows access to the resultant ‘program’. Scripts can be distributed for use in Navigator or IDE and can be pin protected or encrypted if desired.
