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 there,I'm having trouble running DIVA. I used DIVA over the last couple of months but my computer crashed, so I had to reinstall it on a new PC. Everything looks fine, the DIVA toolbar shows, it tells me when my licence will expire and when I hit…Continue
Hi there,I am actually looking for a scenario! Yup! Looking for a scenario which makes me heading toward glass layer optimization through the project special form. How you will act if you wanna do some thing like selecting the material of your…Continue
Hello,I have a screen in my Rhino model, and in daylight simulations I can see that it is shading the roof of the rest of the building. However, when I run a radiation simulation, to show less of a heat…Continue
Hi,there.My system is Win 7 64-bit. And my rhino version is 5.0. I installed the 64-bit version of DIVA 2.0.This is the first time to use DIVA to do solar analysis. The commands Location and Nodes work well, but whenever I click Material or Metrics,…Continue
Hello,This is my first thermal simulation attempt. All geometry is a single plane, and there are only 3 material layers. I get the error message below (see jpeg attachment). My "glass" might not be accurately modeled; it doesn't intersect with the…Continue
Hi,I'm having trouble when i send a visualization image. I'm getting a flat beige colred image instead of the geometry. I've seen previous responses (OBJ definition, etc), which, i think, i did set properly. But still ... no image.I tried to…Continue
