Announcing Archsim

DIVA 4.0 beta will debut here soon.

We are pleased to announce that Archsim - the multi-zone energy simulation plugin for Grasshopper - is now part of the DIVA environmental performance analysis suite. Starting with DIVA 4.0, Grasshopper users will be able to seamlessly combine annual daylight availability and glare analysis with thermal simulation studies for fully conditioned and naturally ventilated buildings.


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 MetricsAnnual and Individual Time Step Glare Analysis, LEED and CHPS Daylighting Compliance, and Single Thermal Zone Energy and Load Calculations.
