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.
good morning,i was wondering if i can use multiple cores to speed my simulation? and i need help with starting my trial. as the program ends it after only one use. it starts by telling me that i have 29 days and 23 hours and once i close the program…Continue
Hi everyone!I' ve made a custom occupancy schedule from 9am to 9pm for university hours and I want to exclude 1st July-1 October days. My schedule doesn't work because it comes up with 0 occupancy hours per year and 0% of floor area. I've attached…Continue
Dear DIVA Community:I have two questions concerning diva/grasshopper. Hope it's OK to post only one discussion. Please read through both my questions before putting any effort. Thank you in advance. 1) Failure of DA Calculation:I am following…Continue
Attached is an image of the render ...I am wondering if this is a true visualization of the light or not ? .. I feel that the render is greyish while it should be having this yellowish daylight to make it more realistic .. so Is it a problem that I…Continue
Hey all,So I've been trying to run a simulation for the climate-based analysis to test out the efficiency of a shading design on the exterior of a building, but the simulation keeps producing the same results. The results show that the entire floor…Continue
Hi All,lately, I am facing this issue: simple shadow analysis (sun path) my DIVA switch to a Display mOdes DIVASunPath6 but the visualization is not at all clear (default settings)…Continue
