One Click LCA

Import from gbXML file

Importing is a core process of One Click LCA. It is built on a patent-pending technology for transforming models to life-cycle impact assessments. This page concerns the use of the One Click LCA® in connection with gbXML files. 
Make sure you have the things listed below before starting:
  • One Click LCA user account
  • An Energy simulation tool that enables to export your model to gbXML
  • An existing project in the user account with a valid license

How do I use gbXML import?

Watch our tutorial video of the tool basic functionalities and test the web interface so that you’ll know how it works before starting the import. 

Step 1: Open your model in the software for energy simulation you use and export the model into gbXML format.

Here is the list of software tools that support gbXML

Step 2: The gbXML files will be imported via the 'Import Excel or gbXML file' choice in the user interface


Step 3: Add missing data

If your model contains missing structures necessary to include in your LCA, add them manually. Energy models will contain all required parts of the enclosure as well as the floors and roofs. However, they often do not contain structures, like beams and columns. Go to the main page of your project, click on the design and choose Building materials question form. Add missing data there
