Naviate Daylight

Automate daylight factor and daylight area ratio calculations of your BIM model for optimising design decisions on indoor lighting, windows and other elements for better work and living areas.

Customised for architects

Naviate Daylight automates daylight requirements checking based on several local standards, reducing the time needed for manual checking and documenting. Daylight is integrated within Revit, saving all data in Revit environment and removing the need to export/import data — and reducing the risk of data loss. There are also various visualization and reporting functionalities available for creating reference and presentation content.
