Re: IES Dimensions

Hi Anders, The words "width" and "length" are not defined exactly. From a mathematical perspective “length” can be the longer side but must not. Sounds strange, isn´t it? Physicists are using “depth”, which is the distance from an observer position. The depth changes if the position of the observer ...

Re: IES Dimensions

Hi Anders, We hope we will exclude all possibility of doubt. The definition of LM-63-02 is: Width is the direction perpendicular to plane C0-C180. Length is measured parallel to C0-C180. Having a look at your example the dimmensios are imported correctly. DIALux is just using the word "width" and "l...

Re: IES Dimensions

Dear Anders, Thank you for your thoughts! This may be an interesting question for other users too. Of course DIALux works correct accordingly to the IESNA standard LM-63-02. Please do not get irritated by the words “width” and “length”. Not the words are standardized but the meaning. LM-63-02: Width...

Re: Accessing site area

Hi Alan, Thank you for the files! To import a DWG please make sure to import it always using the correct size. E.g. if you will select meters instead of millimeters the drawing will be 1000x smaller than intended. Furthermore we have noticed that the desired plan is much smaller than the complete DW...

Re: Lichtstrom ändern iesna

Hi MJ78, vielen Dank für die Fragen! 1.) Ist es legitim, den "originalen" vom Werk gesetzten Lichtstrom innerhalb der Datei bei Bedarf zu senken oder gar zu erhöhen? Es ist nicht verboten den Lichtstrom einer Photometrie zu verändern. Allerdings sollte der Hersteller, bzw. das Labor, in dem die Leuc...

Re: Dialux Evo to Revit

Dear Znall,

Relux is using a closed 3D model format. There is no direct interface to import the models from DIALux into Relux or the other way around.


Best regards

Re: Documentation-Error "Failed to allocate"

Dear Marian, We suppose that the project is not created in the origin of the DIALux coordinate system (0,0,0). If the project is far away form the origin there may be issues to create the documentation for "Views" or other performance issues. To solve the behavior please move the floor element and a...

Re: Different results in IES and LDT files of the same light source

Dear Orkan, As explained above is the height of the luminaire housing not included in the IES file format. The manufacturer themself cannot enter the height in the IES format too. All information about the housing cannot be displayed. The IES file just describes the light emitting surface. This is a...
