Hi UMI team

Just want to say that UMI seems to be a very useful tool in architecture and urban planning issues. Right now i'm working with a professor investigator and we are very interested in using UMI in a research about hi density housing and all the implied issues.

Just wondering if:
Do you have a release date for v2.0?

Do you have any tutorials for the downloadable version? (This because interface differences between versions and most of it the tool bar icons, thing that others users have the same problem)

Do you know about any similar tool? or What do you recommend? (We are under a dates program and must present the results of our work. We are trying DIVA but seems to be focused in environmental aspects, we need these, but also the others that UMI offers)

We are really looking forward using your tool.
Thanks and salutes!

Oswaldo Lau.

In Short

Umi is a Rhino-based design environment for architects and urban planners interested in modeling the environmental performance of neighborhoods and cities with respect to operational and embodied energy use, walkability and daylighting potential. Since 2012, Umi has been  developed by the Sustainable Design Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with support from a National Science Foundation EFRI_SEED project, the MIT Energy Initiative, the Kuwait-MIT Center, the Center for Complex Engineering Systems (CCES) at KACST and MIT, Transsolar Climate Engineering and United Technologies Corporation. Further tool developed is now also being conducted at the Environmental Systems Lab at Cornell University.

A first public version of Umi was released during a public symposium on Sustainable Urban Design on May 6th 2013 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Version 2.0, which also includes an embodied energy module, was released on November 7th 2014.
