Diva Day 2017
Register now for DIVA Day 2017! DIVA Day is an annual symposium to discuss the use of DIVA and associated environmental analysis tools in design practice, research and architectural education.
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.
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 All,I have done a "surface analysis" for my energy model and it looks good, but when I plug the model into the energy Plus module and run the analysis, I see a list of errors (please see attached) related to the windows (skylights). The openings…Continue
Hi there,I am trying to run DA according to LEEDv4 where shades are closed when 2% of the area has direct sun. The idea was to divide the process into two steps.First step: I divide the windows per room/grid and then I generate the schedules based…Continue
Hi allAfter run the climate-base simulation, in cmd window show an error about " No LIGHTING SOURCES FOUND ". What is this error? How can set the lighting sources in that simulation?Please help me ......…Continue
Hi all, I am doing an urban scale simulation and I would like to do everything on Grasshopper. May I ask if DIVA could1) export the simulation results in csv format just like what DIVA (Rhino) does.2) if so, how I am able to understand the location…Continue
