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.
Diva Team,I need to simulate Spatial daylight Autonomy(sDA) to 200 Lux. However in this simulation type there is no option to change the iluminance target as in Daylight Autonomy(DA) simulation. Is the target iluminance can be changed in sDA…Continue
Hello,I conducted some simulations a while ago and now that I am writing a paper on it, I am going back to find the U-value of the glazing that I used for my simulation. I saved a screenshot of the settings (attached) but I cannot find the U-value…Continue
Hi there, I ran into a case that have 50k points for radiation map simulation. The simulation has finished and resulted a 1G DLT file. Grasshopper failed to load the results when trying to access hourly data of every point with Grid viewer, of…Continue
If your EDB file got corrupted and you need to recover data from EDB file, so just download EdbMails EDB recovery tool. Recover EDB to PST file along with its data, properties and attachment. EdbMails successfully recovers mailbox from EDB files,…Continue
Hello everyone,I was curious how much is the outdoor illuminance on a surface when we calculate a daylight factor?? Is it always the same value under any location??Thank you for your help.Continue
Hello,Thank you for approving me,My Name is Mohammed and I am a student at the University of Liverpool, UK. Currently, I'm conducting a simulation of a simple shade to examine the effects of shadows on a microclimate's urban context of a location.…Continue
