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.
Hello Everyone,I'm comparing hourly results from Illuminance Component and Annual Daylight Component, and they don't give the same results on same date and time. please find files attached for your check.Does anyone know what is wrong ?Can you…Continue
Dear all,Currently I am trying to calculate the Average Daylight Factor with DIVA 3.0 in grasshopper.By running two simulations and only modifying the irradiance in the CIE.Overcast.Sky.rad file, I would expect to have the similar Daylight Factor…Continue
Hi folks, I had two questions related to annual glare analysis.I have been trying to run annual glare analysis for a project. The project is based in Kansas City and the occupant is facing southwest. I keep getting an error message in the…Continue
Our company bought Diva4 by using server license. Recently I came across the error message in grasshopper environment as follows. All the components in Rhino could be used. Any solution? Thanks! …Continue
Hi,The PV-panel-component fails to input a brep-surface (it turns red). I've tried simple geometries (1x1 m) as well as different tricks, but I keep getting the following info from the component: 1. Solution exception:Method not found:…Continue
