DIVA Day 2014

DIVA 3.0 has arrived!


We are pleased to announce the release of DIVA-for-Rhino 3.0! DIVA 3.0 includes all of the existing simulations available in DIVA 2.0 plus several exciting new features aimed at providing users with even more daylighting design and analysis tools:


  • LEED v4 daylighting credit – simulate the credit using the IES-LM-83's sDA metric
  • Electric Lighting - load in and position IES files to simulate electric lighting


Click here for full details about the new version and the new and updated features. Educational, professional and site licenses are available. If you purchased DIVA 2.0 after June 1st, 2014, you are eligible for a free upgrade. More information available here.


Purchase or upgrade now.


Happy Simulating!

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 MetricsAnnual 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 Every one, I've a little problem that the thermal analysis takes longer time than it should. It always stops at Initializing simulation for about 20 minutes. There's any way to make takes less time. the shading element consists of like 12…Continue
