We know the pressure you’re under to produce great designs, quickly—so we made a solution to fit your workflows
Subscription-based pricing and a freemium option enable informed design decisions right from a project’s inception
No specialized skills are required, thanks to automated simulations and a clear, intuitive interface
Gaining crucial insights has never been so easy
Orbital Stack includes all the features you need to gain crucial insights into the outdoor comfort of your building designs.
Plus, to help you quickly and affordably take your designs to the next level, Orbital Stack customers can gain additional validation, direction—and confidence—with design guidance and interpretation from RWDI’s building performance, climate engineering, and environmental engineering experts.
Browser based interface
A clientless UI serves as the interface between the building designer and the Orbital Stack cloud, simplifying integration into existing workflows, and avoids the need for software installation and maintenance. A single model can be used to run a range of simulations, providing everything needed to gain valuable insights.
Wind comfort analysis
Presents a statistical view of typical conditions annually, by season, or by time of day, and indicates if a specific location is suited for sitting, strolling, or is uncomfortable and requires mitigation. Learn more
Thermal comfort analysis
Gives you objective metrics (e.g., SPMV*, UTCI) that show you how outdoor spaces meet their desired usage profiles, in terms of overall outdoor comfort for a given season (range of months), time of day period (range of hours), clothing, and activity level. Learn more
Examines a location’s average wind speeds from a given direction, illustrating them with arrows and streamlines, and ultimately revealing potential issues with usability, comfort, and safety. Learn more
Presents a statistical view of the solar potential around the site, showing which areas are shaded during the given season (month range) and time of day (hour range), if the sky was clear every day of the year. Learn more
Experts ready to help
Although Orbital Stack is a self-serve platform that puts the power of analysis in your hands, users can still access RWDI’s world-renowned wind and microclimate experts for an additional hourly charge. Whether to gain a better understanding of results or to refine options, RWDI experts are here to help.
