hi everyone I am new in working with Diva and I have some question.

I want to analyse a room that is 6 meter * 8 meter

when I set the rhino units in meter and do my model an analyse I receive different result according to when I set unit in centimeter and model a box 600 centimeter*800 centimeter. which one is the correct one

and what is the unit of illuminance output as default?

thanks

Hi Sahar,

The default unit for illuminance is lux, but you can select the results to be displayed as footcandles. The results should not be different regardless of your units, however if you change from one to another, it's a good idea to double check that Rhino has scaled your model properly when you make the change. 

How different are the results? If you send us some screen shots of the two results, it would help us address the issue better.

Good luck,

Kera

thanks a lot for your attention.

I notice that the change of result is not cause of the unit.

I do not know why but when I did not make any changes at model and press the true in run toggle each time it gives me different numbers.
and my mesh surface remain all blue.????
