The Daylighting module calculates daylight illuminance, average daylight factor and uniformity outputs for each zone using the advanced Radiance simulation engine. Daylighting key features:

  • Calculate Green Star credits (also: 'Right to Light', LEED, BREEAM)
  • Generate high quality illuminance contour plots to illustrate daylight availability within each zone, block or slice through the whole building.
  • Full multi-zone simulation covering transmission of light through exterior and interior windows.
  • Daylighting photo realistic image Create photo-realistic rendered images in visualize.
  • Average daylight factors and uniformity data can be shown in tabular reports.
