DIVA-for-Rhino

Description

DIVA-for-Rhino is a highly optimized daylighting and energy modeling plug-in for Rhinoceros, a NURBS modeling software. The plug-in was initially developed at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University and is distributed 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. DIVA for Rhino comes with an enhanced user interface for Grasshopper. Dropdown parameters allow you to quickly select library materials and schedules. Input and output parameters can be added and removed from components at the click of a button, giving you full control over the complexity of your scripts.
