Diva Day 2017
Register now for DIVA Day 2017! DIVA Day is an annual symposium to discuss the use of DIVA and associated environmental analysis tools in design practice, research and architectural education.
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,I'm getting the following error when trying to run a glare simulation. Rhino and GH files are attached.Any help would be much appreciated.[ 1. Batch file written to directory:C:\Users\pkuehne\Documents\DIVA\GH_Data\glare_test\GlareRun…Continue
Hi all,I tried several times to install DIVA 4 but it always fails.I could install it perfectly in my laptop which had never had a previous DIVA version. But on my PC which had DIVA 3, I cannot solve the issue. I made a registry clean after…Continue
Hi, I am trying to run an optimization with multiple objectives (UDI+DGP), however, it takes really long time to run the simulation. I have just simplified to a single objective optimization, where UDI is the main focus. But my result still does not…Continue
I have a question about the ground temperatures.In the advanced settings of the 'run E+' component, there is a setting for the ground temperatures. Will it override the ground temperatures as specified in the weather data?Continue
Hello everyone, I'm new to grasshopper and DIVA. When I was creating a sun path diagram, the rhino interface doesn't change into Diva sun path view and there's no shadows also (I can't find the diva sun path view in the drop down list). I'm using…Continue
Hi everyone,I am trying to run the radiation map simulation in order to obtain the irradiation values on photovoltaic cells that have a coloured glass as a front layer.Two questions spring to my mind:1. Does the obtained irradiation correspond to…Continue
