DIVA Thermal

Construction Assembly
This component must be used to assign constructions assemblies to zone geometry
before that geometry can be passed on to the 'Viper' component for thermal analysis
Shade
Use this component to create one or a group of
external shading objects (overhangs, trees, surrounding
buildings, etc.).
Read Saved Thermal Results
This component reads the results of saved thermal
simulation projects
Viper: DIVA Thermal Analysis for GH
This component performs a single-zone thermal simulation using EnergyPlus, an open-
source software operated by the US Department of Energy (http://apps1
Window Unit
This component must be used to assign window unit constructions to window geometry
before that geometry can be passed on to the 'Viper' component for thermal analysis

DIVA Daylight

DIVA Daylight Analysis for GH
This component runs a DIVA Daylight analysis with Grasshopper Geometry
Material
This component must be used to assign materials to geometry before that geometry
can be passed on to the 'Analysis' component for the selected daylight analysis
Analysis Grid
Subdivides geometry into analysis nodes, vector directions, and corresponding mesh faces for visualization.
Legend
Display a Legend for the analysis results
which is oriented to the active viewport

Solar Tools

Solar Envelope
Creates a buildable envelope for a given boundary curve based on the latitude and time of solar access for an entire year
Solar Fan
Creates a no-obstruction envelope which ensures solar access for sites like parks, landscaping, etc...
Solar Position Calculator
Finds sun location and creates the solar vectors for a given location and time
General Solar Position Calculation adopted from Radiance.

Massing Tools

FAR Calculator
Estimates the Floor-Area-Ratio of a Massing given its Site. Also scales Massings to a FAR goal.
