ClimateStudio Overview

ClimateStudio 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 & Individual Time Step Glare Analysis, LEED and CHPS Daylighting Compliance, Single Thermal Zone Energy and Load Calculations.

ClimateStudio can handle unlimited numbers of sensors and operable / dynamic shades to run LM-83 / LEED calculations. ClimateStudio can run annual, glare calculations on a grid across an entire space using DGPs (rather than a single view using eDGPs as in DIVA).

For climate-based daylight simulations ClimateStudio is 100's of times faster due to the path tracing algorithm implemented and due to using the GPU to handle mathematical operations.

ClimateStudio training is available for Individuals or Companies, we can deliver project specific workshops. Use of ClimateStudio amongst other plug-ins for Grasshopper, also features in our scheduled Grasshopper Level 2 course.
