Diva Day 2016
University of Toronto
Register now for DIVA Day 2016! DIVA Day is an annual symposium to discuss the use of DIVA and associated environmental analysis tools in design practice, research and architectural education. We're also holding a third annual DIVA Day Student Competition, with a $1500 prize! Due date has been extended to September 3.
What is DIVA-for-Rhino?
DIVA-for-Rhino is a highly optimized daylighting and energy modeling plug-in for the Rhinoceros - NURBS modeler. The plug-in was initially developed at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University and is now distributed and developed by Solemma LLC. DIVA-for-Rhino allows users to carry out a series of environmental performance evaluations of individual buildings and urban landscapes including Radiation Maps, Photorealistic Renderings, Climate-Based Daylighting Metrics, Annual and Individual Time Step Glare Analysis, LEED and CHPS Daylighting Compliance, and Single Thermal Zone Energy and Load Calculations.
I have a question about running a .bat file on a Windows server that has a 32 CPUs. The server is a virtual one hosted by Amazon's cloud service. Will running 3200 glare simulations from a .bat file on the server take the same time as if I run them…Continue
Hi All,I am trying to do an optimization using galapagos for a screen design using climate based metrics.After 3 different simulations I get this error "ds_el_lighting.exe" stopped working. Do you have an idea why this might happen ? I have a…Continue
Hello,I just installed DIVA 4 on Rhino 5 SR12 64-bit. After that I put the student license in C:\DIVA and I drag the DIVA.rui and DIVA.rhp files into the Rhino viewport. When I click a DIVA command nothing happens. I have installed the program…Continue
How can i create a userdefined analysis grid? I want to calculate the daylight factors for some specific points and don't want to use only the value closest to that point... Can i draw the points/grid directly or do i have to use some…Continue
In my model the labels of the analysis grid are upside down.Cplane and mother surface are looking upwards, the analysis grid is also positioned over the mother surface. But if i display the node values after the calculation they are all flipped.Any…Continue
