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.
The DIVA 3.0 Alpha version has been released!
Update: A beta version has been released (220.127.116.11), which extends the license until November 15.
Presentations and audio from DIVA Day 2014 have been posted!
Hello, I'd like to know if it's possible to add an extra output in Viper. I'm interested to read the hourly values of the internal loads' utilization factor. It's possible?thanksSimoneContinue
Dear All,I would like to ask you that whether it is possible to apply material in Revit and import 3d model solid into Rhino/Diva. My project has 5 stories and is a huge building. Which do you recommend to apply material ?Yours sincerelyContinue
Hi All,I was wondering if we can use Elechtrochromic glazing as a material for window in Diva or any glazing that change the visible light transmittance based on interior light level.Thanks,AhooContinue
HiI've got this idea,When im running multiple simulations in diva/rhino with multiple files, i get to use several threads, or cores, on my computer, as long as im in different rhino files.I was wondering if the could some time in the future be…Continue
Hi Alstan,I am trying to run a thermal analysis. The model is very simple and I make sure that the surface normal are pointing outwards. Unfortunatelly I got an error message. Then I opened the idf file found in the temp folder and I didn't find any…Continue
Hi,Is it possible to set the simulation parameters of the pop-up menu of Viper with number sliders? I would like to run a loop of daily simulations without changing the dates in the pop-up menu for every simulation.Thanks,SiemenContinue
