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.
I am student trying to use daylight metrics, however it is not working. Attached is my definition which copies the tutorial example. If anyone can shine some light, that would be much appreciated. Also, I am guessing the grasshopper version is…Continue
Hi There,I just modeled a very simple room with one window, when I run Diva for Grasshopper I get very strange illuminance values, I get very high values around all 4 interior wall edges and very low values in the middle of the room ? please help, I…Continue
Hi everyone, I have two questions, I'm going to use Diva and Galapagos for a school project, is there any way I can export the illuminance values to Excel for each iteration. My other question is , I need to show the illuminance value for each node…Continue
hi every body thanks DIVA team for your great program :) recently i saw a weird error in my rhino after 1-2 daylight simulation with diva a "metric" icon doesn't work, also right click on the icon..and some other such as "Save As" in rhino…Continue
Hi, I would like to run some simulations using dimmer photosensors and photosensors that will fully turn on the lighting system when the target illuminance is not reached. Since DIVA doesn’t have this option, could I assume that an “active user”…Continue
Hi to everyone,in this tutorial ( http://diva4rhino.com/page/simulating-luminaires-with-ies-files ) is shown a method to simulate a lamp. Unfortunately I have tried to do…Continue
