Hi guys, I’m working on a model in Sketchup free. My goal is to get some accurate shadow simulation for planning an array of solar panels.
A few years ago I used the standalone version and had quite some settings for the shadows, but all I’m seeing now are the time and date. So far so good. I’ve added my location and rotated my model to match the map, next I wanted to check if my shadows are pointing the right direction at the time the sun is exactly in the south. For my location this would be at around 12:40 GMT+1, however I don’ t have a clue which timezone sketchup is using.
It can’t be using the same timezone as the location on the map as it goes completely dark in sketchup at time: 17:30 & date 09/25 while in fact the sun was still shining outside.
Does anyone have an idea how Sketchup Free handles time zones?
