Hello Diva-Community,

I am a swedish architecture student currently participating in a sustainable building competition. I am trying for the first time to deal with solar analysis and therefore stumbled across this tool. I tried to start off with the online tutorials from this website but unfortunately it seems to fail because the model (Gund_111.3dm) is rotated and vertical in the resulting image output. So I guess there must be an axis shift somewhere in the process?!

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi Sophie,

This is because DIVA relies upon Rhino's OBJ exporter to get geometry to the simulation environment. If you've ever exported data to a program that uses Y-up (like CFD), then this could happen to you. Just set your object export settings as below and save it as the default.



thank you! that helped solving the problem :)
