skylight

Post by Agnese » Fri May 26, 2017 11:31 am

Hi everyone!
I'm using Dialux for the first time and I have to finish some analysis about an art showroom. I've almost finished the costruction of the room, but I have a problem: in this room there's no natural light but a skylight in the center of the roof and I don't know how to create it. In fact, I tried to use the tool 'drawing object' with the window pattern, but it is not considered as a window by the program. I also tried to use the tool 'cut surface' on the false ceiling, but I just can't make it. In every method, Dialux doesn't consider the skylight as a souce of natural light, so I can't make analysis using only that one, as I need. Can anyone help me? :D

Dear Agnese,

You just have to insert a roof window to get also the daylight results. Please see screenshot below.

Thank you Csuleiman,
I tried to put the roof window as you said and in this way the program starts to calculate the analysis at least...but as it starts a calculation error occurs. Did I make a mistake?
