Once you have some 3D geometry you can begin to investigate how it will perform in its environment.

There is a selection of tools in the Analysis and Simulation section of the main software list.

Creating meaningful building energy models (BEM) is described on the Energy Modeling page.

A powerful and mature tool-set which can run many types of analysis is Ladybug Tools which has connections to both proprietary and free/libre software projects. Read more about that on the Ladybug Tools page.

TopologicEnergy can also run basic energy analysis in Blender using topologic, openstudio, and EnergyPlus. It is 100% free and open-source.

This page is about AEC_Free_Software_directory#Analysis_and_Simulation software and the Category:Analysis_and_Simulation. This category currently includes software for Structural Analysis & Environmental Analysis.
