Outside elements into calculation


I have been trying out relux for daylight factor simulation. And what i can't understand is if relux takes other rooms,roofs or overhanging obstacles into consideration? (See attached file) i use Revit and then export to gbxml. 

Or do i have to draw prism to get that into my calculation.

Dear Geir Ove Torgersen

Yes, Relux takes other rooms into consideration, but only if they are inserted as objects.

By inserting your project as gbXML, you add rooms to your scene, and each room is calculated separately by its own and not in combination with the others. In this scenario Relux does not include walls and roofs in his calculation.
