Naviate Daylight

Changes are available both in 2019.1.9 and 2020.1.3 if not otherwise stated in headlines.

Daylight Ratio

We have made the following improvements:

  • Support for modeless functionality.
    Daylight tool runs completely modeless now. This enables you to change your Revit project, like adding a window or selecting another room, while Daylght tool is open and recalculate daylight by clicking the "recalculate" button.
  • 3D Visualization is displayed in a separate window. This allows you to make the 3D visualization full screen.

  • Improvements to the displacement of diagonal oriented/sloped windows in the 3D visualization.
  • Improved the stability of the overall calculation results - Various improvements to the Daylight room/wall area/ratio calculations.
  • Fixed and improved Balcony Filter calculations
    • For SE and NO standards any balcony area above the room will be taken into account, not just the area with the room name containing "balcony".
  • Various improvements to the Danish Daylight Ratio calculation, whereas most reduction factors cannot be lower than 0.5.
  • All local standard specific factors will now be saved to window instance parameters.
  • Several UI/UX issues have been fixed and improved
  • Fixed issues when running Calculations on projects with Groups
  • Fixed issues when creating Element Sections/Elevations
  • Fixed several issues when saving parameters to Elements (Rooms, Windows….)
  • The autofill required values are automatically applied when required ratio parameters are not set as shared parameters in the Revit room properties.

Daylight Factor

  • Required Daylight Factor is calculated per room according to selected local standard.
    This is a minimum Daylight Factor of:
    • 2% for Norwegian standard,
    • 1% for Danish,
    • 1% for Finnish
    • 1% for Swedish standards.
    • 1% for LEED standards

  • Based on Daylight Factor settings the tool calculates the follwing daylight requirements: min/avg/max luminance, min/avg/max daylight factor and uniformity ratio

  • You can select two engines to calculate daylight factor: RADIANCE or ACCELERAD calculation engine.
    • Disclaimer: Dependent on the chosen engine and calculation parameters the daylight factor results might vary.
  • We support setting up custom calculation parameters. Providing the possibility to setup your own accuracy/performance configuration. Using radiance/accelerad parameters is an advanced option, refer to help pages before editing them.

  • Daylight Factor heatmap 3D visualization added.

  • The Revit room parameters now contain properties for saving Daylight Factor values
