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
Has anyone been able to find some thermal simulation tutorials that walk you through step by step like the daylighting tutorials do? I followed the thermal simulation instructions but am still not able to get my model to run. I am just learning Diva…Continue
This is a bit of a technical question :)For DAYSIM, the ds_illum subprogram calculates .ill files.My question is...if the building geometry (or materials) changes, does the .ill file have to be re-calculated?I read the following on …Continue
Hi guys. I would like to ask U one question: I've houses at ground floor, under of these there are unheated ambient (like garages) with a temperature of 10°c. I can't set floor as an external floor (because temperature is higher than external…Continue
WHY do i only get the error:"ERROR: Solution exception: Index was outside the bounds of the array."and how do I solve it?Continue
Hi,I am struggling with an error with Viper - I have tried on a very simple model and still get the same error - see attached screen shot and files. It works fine with the Rhino toolbar.Apologies for repetitive posting of this error... but I am…Continue
