This release of SunDAT includes the following features/fixes:

  • Optimize row spacing (GCR) based on target system size for a region.
    • To use, set a “Target System Size” in Layout and then turn on “Use Target Size to determine spacing”.
    • Thanks to Dan for this suggestion!
  • Custom component sharing.
    • Any custom components used in an SKP model are now also stored in that model (in addition to being stored in the user’s local equipment library).
    • Example:  User A creates a custom module and uses it in an SKP model.  User A sends the SKP to User B.  Once User B opens this SKP, the custom module will immediately be added to their local user library.
  • Equipment labeling for the DC Electrical feature (on separate layer).
    • Combiners and inverters can now be labeled dynamically
    • Labeling is included in export to AutoCAD
    • Thanks to Ben for this suggestion!
  • Option to remove all empty string slots in a DC Electrical hierarchy.
  • Target System Size in Layout can apply to single region or all regions.
    • When 2 or more regions are chosen in Layout, unchecking the “By Region?” checkbox will set the Target System Size to the entire model (all regions)
    • Thanks to Jared for this suggestion!
  • Improved cut/fill feature so that any errors in volume calculation are now reported in UI and in the model.
