Dear colleagues,


Some of you might be interested in a new Radiance/Daysim plug-in that we
have developed for the Rhinoceros - NURBS modeling for Windows
application. The plug-in, called DIVA-for-Rhino, supports a series of
performance evaluations including:


- Physically-based scene visualizations (Radiance)

- Annual radiation maps (Radiance/GenCumulativeSky)

- Climate-based daylighting metrics (Daysim)

- Glare analysis (Evalglare)

- LEED IEQ Credit 8.1 compliance (Radiance)


The plug-in offers a highly optimized simulation workflow within
Rhinoceros and can be combined with parametric Grasshopper scripting in
order to generate animated Radiance/Daysim simulations.   

More information can be found at
www.gsd.harvard.edu/research/gsdsquare/ABPS.html. You can download the
plug-in from www.diva-for-rhino.com.


Happy simulations!


Christoph Reinhart, Alstan Jakubiec, Kera Lagios and Jeff Niemasz
