Installing DIVA-for-Rhino 4.0

DIVA version 4 is now installed!

Getting Started

You may wish to begin with some wonderful DIVA tutorials produced by MIT's Sustainable Design Lab.What others have done with DIVA can be seen in the proceedings of our previous DIVA Day events from 20122013, 2014, and 2015. Please feel free to explore our user guide using the sidebar to the right.

If you have any issues post in the appropriate discussion forum, and we will answer as soon as possible.

Missing the DIVA toolbar or receiving an 'unknown command' error?

If you do not see the DIVA toolbar docked at the top of the screen, you will need to browse to the C:\DIVA\ folder and open either the 32bitPluginFiles or the 64bitPluginFiles folder depending on the version of DIVA you have installer. Once in the appropriate 32/64-bit folder, drag the DIVA.rui and DIVA.rhp files into the Rhino viewport.

Having troubles installing DIVA-for-Grasshopper?

If the DIVA and ArchSim components do not show up on the Grasshopper canvas, then the C:\DIVA\64bitPluginFiles\DIVA.Daylight.ghlink and C:\DIVA\64bitPluginFiles\ArchSim\ArchSim.ghlink files can be saved in the Grasshopper components folder, C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Grasshopper\Libraries\.


By default, DIVA comes with a 30-day trial license that functions the same as the full version. Students are eligible to register for a free educational license. Professional users may purchase a perpetual license for individual computers. Large institutions and schools may contact us to discuss pricing for a floating site license.
