TRACE 3D Plus is built on the Department of Energy EnergyPlus calculation engine, allowing users to create accurate building models. The interface features drag-and-drop components, and 2D or 3D visual model validation helps minimize modeling time and cost.
The visual interface integrates component and system sizing with energy and economic analysis. This allows engineers to move from project plans and files to load design and energy analysis without having to enter data multiple times.
In addition to the expanded library of modeling data, TRACE 3D Plus software is integrated with the Trane Official Product Selection System (TOPSS) software. This provides analysis to help make building design and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system decisions from conceptual design to as-built performance.
Every TRACE license comes with access to the Trane C.D.S. support portal, which has been enhanced to include screen sharing, a knowledge center, and online ticketing and tracking, providing customers with access to assistance whenever they need it.
