Diva Day 2016
University of Toronto
Register now for DIVA Day 2016! DIVA Day is an annual symposium to discuss the use of DIVA and associated environmental analysis tools in design practice, research and architectural education. We're also holding a third annual DIVA Day Student Competition, with a $1500 prize! Due date has been extended to September 3.
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,I am trying to apply a dynamic shading control over a buildings' south facade. I am new to Rhino+DIVA . I know there is an option to define dynamic shading under materials -1) but can that be configured for movable/rotating external louvers also…Continue
Hi everyone,I am trying to run annual glare analysis for a simple shoebox office but I am getting an error that several times.I am enclosing a screenshot in the attachment. I will be happy if somebody helps me. Thank you so much.Negar…Continue
HelloI am running a point-in-time illuminance metric in a fairly complicated geometry. The simulation was running fine until I was using internal roller blinds (apart from a certain degree of overestimation). But it keeps running into the same error…Continue
Hello.I am currently using DIVA with Rhino5. I have used DIVA on previous occasions to run a few different metrics but I do not have any experience with spatial daylight autonomy or annual sunlight exposure metrics. The Well Building Standards'…Continue
Hi!is there a way to keep the diva.exe running so it doesnt pop up for every iteration? Do you know what I mean?I could also save some time if the diva.exe would just run the raytracing over and over again since the general settings are the same for…Continue
Hallo,I wondered if there was a way to change the orientation of a rhino model from grasshopper, either by rotating the x-y plane or by rotating the entire rhino model?For my lighting simulations i have been using the current Rhinoceros scene,…Continue
