DIVA 4.0 beta will debut at DIVA Day 2015!
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.
DIVA 4.0 beta will debut at DIVA Day 2015 on October 23 in London, England. Join us to learn about DIVA 4.0 and more on October 22 and 24 at our DIVA Day training courses.
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.
New in DIVA-3.0 is the ability to simulate the IES-LM-83 sDA and ASE standards as well as detailed electric lighting.
Presentations and audio from DIVA Day 2014 have been posted!
Hello, I have been trying to understand better how DIVA calculates DGP in the annual studies so that I can better understand how far I can draw conclusions. I've been reading through various papers, and from what I can tell, there are basically 3…Continue
Hello,I successfully ran an annual glare simulation and am now about to run daylight autonomy. I'm getting a pop up asking if I want to use the same daylight coefficient. I haven't changed any settings, so I'd like to say yes, but I wanted to…Continue
Hi everybody,I am trying to simulate a complex 3d shading in concrete (you can see in attached file), in daylighting simulations no problem but thermal analysis doesn't work. I know that curve and complex geometry have some problems in energy plus.…Continue
Hi everyone,I'm quite new with DIVA and I already have a question for you, expert users.I started using DIVA with Grasshopper since my main purpose will be to run optimization processes based on parametric modeling. My only doubt is: what's the…Continue
Dear experts again,I am trying to set a view downward as follow:Target:(1.050,-0.720,25.282)Location:(1.050,-0.720,25.300)Lens Length:18I do not know why the axes appear rotated. They are not parallel of the monitor.In addiction I launch with that…Continue
Hello,I am trying to meassure the lumnious flux through a window/shading component for a comparison of different types of shading.My strategy is to set up one plane in front of the shading and one behind the window, set up the nodes on the planes…Continue
