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.
Any ideas why my Daylight Autonomy simulation is crashing?Problem signature: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: ds_el_lighting.exe Application Version: 0.0.0.0 Application Timestamp: 5265c59b Fault Module Name: ds_el_lighting.exe Fault…Continue
Hi all,I am trying to do the simulation with different kind of glass and materials. I have samples of all the materials on which there are a lot of material properties numbers (which you can see in the picture below), However I don't know how to…Continue
Hi,I'm working on optimizing light-shelf settings through exhaustive search, so I want to run annual daylight analysis like 8000 times for different light-shelf settings ( angles, horizontal projection and so). The light-shelf settings are…Continue
Hi everyone,A problem occured when I run daylight autonomy simulation to test the efficiency of prismatic film by using BSDF file. The error is shown in 3 photos below. I attached my rhino and material files. My weather file is located inside of…Continue
Hi all,i`m new about using Diva.I want to compare results on Daylight Factor for the same location and same floor square. Result was mean DF is about 1.12%. Now I`m writing thesis `Structure and Daylight performance comparisons of Hemispherical…Continue
