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 upgraded my DIVA installation recently, and right away noticed an issue with the Archsim libraries in Grasshopper. When I launch the Archsim library component, instead of seeing the dialogue box I get the window (attached) and can't get any…Continue
We have upgraded to Rhino 6. Rhino 6 fails to load the license. If I close out of dialogue boxes, launch grasshopper, and run DIVA through Grasshopper (which is our normal workflow anyway) everything works just fine. Any thoughts on how to resolve…Continue
HI, I used DIVA for Rhin V4. When I was in the simulation, i'm run the daylight grid-based- Leed v4 sDA+ ASE, the following screen always appears. Did my computer programs conflict with each other? What's the solution?Thank you for your time, I look…Continue
Hi, first off a simple question – when defining the thermal zone, what are the boundaries suppose to correspond to - the exterior facade or interior wall?I have a house model situated on a sub terrain, meaning a "half-cellar" where the back wall is…Continue
I don't know what is wrong.I assigned materials and choose Boston as a location.However, when I tried to click metrics and visualize at basic form there is nothing on the screen.please help me.…Continue
