How are shadows calculated in PVCAD?

PVCAD uses ray tracing in order to determine shadow properties. Once all obstructions and roof planes are drawn for your project, PVCAD calculates their specific shadows based on the project location, roof azimuth, and physical characteristics (outline drawn in CAD). The outline of the shade is then drawn in automatically to show where the shadow will be.
