DIVA Daylight Analysis for GH

Component Index > DIVA > DIVA Daylight > DIVA Daylight Analysis for GH

This component runs a DIVA Daylight analysis with Grasshopper Geometry.


1) Click the 'Settings' menu at the bottom of the component.

2) Choose a location.

3) Click the 'Simulation Parameters' tab and choose a simulation.

4) Check the 'Include Rhino Scene' box if you want geometry from a previous.
DIVA for Rhino simualtion in the open Rhino File included with the grasshopper geometry.
Leave it unchecked if you are using only grasshopper geometry.

5) Click the 'Output' tab and choose the desired outputs.
Then click 'OK'.

6) Attach grasshopper geometry to the input of a material component.
Click the 'Material Menu' of a material component to assign a radiance material to that geometry.

7) Attach the output of the material component to the 'geometry' input on this component.

8) Attach a matching list or tree of points and vectors to represent analysis nodes and directions.

9) Attach a boolean toggle to the 'run' input and set it to True to run the simulation.

Notes: Attaching a project name will save the analysis files into new directories.
Include a slider into the project name if you want to save all the analysis files.
