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.
In the earlier version of DIVA, we could extract the hourly data for all sensor points in one data tree (number of sensors *number of hours). In this version, through the data viewer, the hourly data can be converted to values, but this only works…Continue
Hey all - quick question: do we need to model a ground plane when using DIVA in grasshopper? Previous posts on this forum have said yes, but I noticed that there is a hidden input in the annual component that says 'ground reflectance." If I modify…Continue
Dear experts,I am trying to run a visualization from one window. I have defined a ground plane with grass material. If I run a render the ground has the material defined but if I run a visualization with DIVA the ground has the default material.I…Continue
Our firm is considering buying new license for the recently released Rhino 6 and just want to check if DIVA 4 can work in new version.Thanks for help.Continue
Hi,I have an office building with a elecrochromic glazing facade. This is divided both vertically and horizontally creating a grid. I have two users and I want to solve the glare by changing the light transmittance of every portion of the…Continue
