What is DIVA?

Experience the most advanced daylighting and energy modeling plug-in for Rhinoceros and Grasshopper.

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 constantly expanded and 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, as well as Multi-Zone Energy and Thermal Comfort Calculations. DIVA simulations are based on EnergyPlus, Radiance and Daysim and grounded in the latest green building design research.

Solemma Events

Solemma regularly hosts an annual, one day event called DIVA Day to further the discourse on the effective use of environmental performance analysis tools during building design. We also offer DIVA training sessions, either during scientific conferences or custom-tailored for companies and universities.
