Naviate Daylight: Optimise design options for indoor lighting and window placement

Naviate Daylight is customised for architects, and elevate Revit to a new higher performance level by providing automated daylight checking and decision support for your integrated BIM design.

Automate daylight requirements based on local standards

Naviate Daylight automates daylight requirements checking (simplified method) based on local standards. Set the required minimum Windows-to-Floor Area Ratio of each room and the plug-in checks automatically whether the room meets your given requirements.

Overview of daylight in the room

The Naviate Daylight gives a quick overview how much daylight each room has, given by the glass areas in all curtain walls and windows from each room. Naviate Daylight uses the floor area of all defined rooms in the model, in order to define floor areas needed to calculate daylight area rate, and in order to get the room bounded surrounding walls, windows, and panes.
