DIVA-for-Rhino is a highly optimized daylighting and energy modeling plug-in for the Rhino/Grasshopper CAD environment. DIVA-for-Rhino 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 and Individual Time Step Glare Analysis, LEED and CHPS Daylighting Compliance, and Single Thermal Zone Energy and Load Calculations.
This webinar presentation will preview the new beta components, explore real-world use cases, and investigate how simulations can run at large-scale directly via Grasshopper on the Parallel Works cloud, removing desktop bottlenecks and delivering up to 1000x simulation iterations in the same time it takes to run just one.

The Ski cup espresso
is a perfectly formed cup on skis that would make a special coffee drinking experience. Designed with Rhino by the product designer and 3D modeler Aleksandar Dimitrov
, the original ski base instantly sets this espresso cup apart. Printed in 3D as one unit by Shapeways, the Ski cup espresso is made of food safe porcelain fired in kiln with glossy glaze.
