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 preparing to teach a class using DIVA to a number of students, and one of the requirements of the class will be to produce a series of butterfly shadow diagrams using the software. I have been trying my best to do this in DIVA, and have only…Continue
Hello all, I'm simulating using the component glare on grasshopper. I'm simulating a hypothetical neighborhood with three buildings with different materials and for different days and hours of the day. It's common to show up a white/yellow point in…Continue
If you installed DIVA or ran an update between Friday, July 21 and Monday, July 24, you are likely to have non-functioning Visualization and Glare components. If so, please re-run the update, or re-download and re-run the installer from solemma.net.…Continue
Hello,My DIVA components stopped working since yesterday and I'm getting an error saying that the run failed and a batch file is written to a directory.1- My licence is ok and is working fine in the Archsim.2-The Run settings of the annual…Continue
Hi!Is there a way to change the default false color scheme with other false color sets in DIVA for Grasshopper in making daylight DF and illuminance simulations? I can not find such a function in any DIVA components in Grasshopper. Do I have to make…Continue
