Ballasted Flat Roof Design Assistant

NEW! Visual Editor for BX Systems

A sophisticated visual editor is now available in the BX Design Assistant—great for small commercial projects with complex roof shapes, panels skewed to roof edges, and multiple roof planes.

The “image-based” design style option allows users to draw arrays directly onto an aerial image of buildings, then engineering values and site conditions are automatically calculated. Edit the array azimuth, remove modules where there are obstructions, create setbacks, and much more for BX Ballasted Systems!

BX DA Roof Planes

Draw Roof Planes on Aerial Imagery

The “image-based” design style option allows users to draw arrays directly onto an aerial image of buildings, then engineering values and site conditions are automatically calculated.

Edit Properties for Each Roof Plane

After confirming the roof planes, users can import project default properties. Properties can be edited and saved for each roof plane, including building height and setbacks.

BX DA Roof Sections

Draw Roof Sections & Build Arrays
