Vertical Louvered Blind Shading Systems

It is now possible to model Vertical Louvered Blinds in the Shading Layer Library, and then add them to a glazing system in the Glazing System Library.

Shading Layer Library

In the Shading Layer Library, set the Type to "Venetian blind, vertical" and then input values for the slat width, slat spacing and tilt will appear. The graphic image is a "plan" view of the vertical louvered blinds and will display the geometry of the blind based on the input values.

Glazing System Library

Once the Vertical Louvered Blind is defined in the Shading Layer Library, it can be added to a glazing system in the Glazing System Library. The blind in the screen shot below has been added to the inside of a double-glazed IGU.
