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 MetricsAnnual and Individual Time Step Glare Analysis, LEED and CHPS Daylighting Compliance, and Single Thermal Zone Energy and Load Calculations.

Hi,I'd like to ask if DIVA 3 or 4 can generate annual profile (for each hour) of solar radiation. If not, what else can do this.Regards,SaharContinue

"Point-In-Time-Glare" simulation taking forever...(with low quality rendering settings)

Started by Ludde Gølen in DIVA-Rhino (version 3.0) yesterday. 0 Replies

Hi,As you see in the title I don't have any actual problems with the simulation of a point in time glare rendering, it's just taking forever. I started the simulation last evening with settings for a low quality rendering just to see how the scene…Continue

sDA and ASE LEED simulation

Started by athanasia lazopoulou in DIVA-Rhino (version 4.0) on Wednesday. 0 Replies

Hello, I am trying to do a sDA and ASE LEED simulation on the central area of my building but I get some strange results. My building has perimetrically glazing and 2 skylights on the roof. When I run a simulation I take as results 86% of sDA and 6%…Continue
