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.
Good morning everybody, I am working with a daylighting simulation and experiencing some frustrating issues with the software, mainly due to the length of computing time when I set up the daylighting component and eventually software crashing. I am…Continue
Hi there,I am doing some studies for an architectural project with multiple buildings on a non-flat site so I was wondering if there's a way to cast shadows on a surface(s) other than regular rendered ground plane?ThanksAliContinue
Hello to all,kindly i have a question i would like you to help me with: i am trying to adjust the lighting intensity or lets say its brightness in a closed room i am making study on. The target is to reach certain predefined average illuminance…Continue
Hello everyoneIt is the first time I do thermal single-zone analysis and I have a question regarding the units of the obtained results.The monthly energy consumption graph seems to be in kWh, while theThe monthly energy consumption graph is…Continue
Hi,I want to get values of annual irradiance for every hour for PV panels. I have multiple different settings (different rotation and angle of tilt) for one PV panel and I want to compare the differences between settings hour by hour.I am using…Continue
