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.
Hi all,I just saw in the front page of Solemma LLC's website that the daylight results were shown with lines. I'm curious to know how it was made. I would like to be able to present the daylight factor results similarly by using DIVA with…Continue
Hi All,I wonder why the Psychometric chart component is no more available in Archsim latest version (i saw it in tutorial 09)?It was very useful to evaluate the hygrometric comfort.As always thank you for your effort and work.Continue
With the dynamic shading could I get the angle of shading as output from Diva?I have a simple model just a room with single window, I wanted to add external blinds or shading. How do I add the shading and define its details ( material, thickness,…Continue
HiWe have done several daylight project with DIVA and are familiar with the grid-based climate-based simulations as well as with the detailed shading controls. Now, we are trying to run a LEED v4 sDA+ASE calculation for the first time.I looked…Continue
I am looking to explore shaded vs unshaded annual daylight conditions, as well as look at how the blind schedule relates to direct sunlight exposure. Is it possible to get the grid data for the direct sunlight exposure (used for ASE calculations)…Continue
