Tremendous work presented by everyone. A truly stimulating and exciting day.
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 everyoneI start to test my model by Image-Based Metric but befor that i have some problem with nodes according user guild i try to direct the nodes on my floor surface but there are in upper . how can i fix this and otherwise when i want to run a…Continue
I wonder what the easiest way to visualize sky luminance is? I tried to make a image looking up but ended up with empty pic files. I do beleve that Radiance does not like parallell renderings.Continue
Hii, do we need to rotate the building in rhino according to true north of the geographical place? or the building set upright on screen attains the true north for the geographical location for the daylight simulations.Continue
Dear all,first of all I welcome that DIVA for Grasshopper now allows to run thermal simulations with the VIPER plugin.For the project I am working on, I would like to understand/modify the *.idf, that is created by Viper.When I try importing the…Continue
HiI'm a danish student and have some trouble with the new updated version of Diva when working in grasshopper:I can't load weather data into Diva-4-grasshopper as descriped in the userguide on this page.I geuss the userguide is for the old version…Continue
Hi all,I would appreciate if anyone can correct me on my interpretation of the 'daylight availability results' in the image below (green matrix):1. Any number which is 'negative' represents 'over-lit' nodes (i.e. 5% of occupied hours with 10-times…Continue
