Importing a luminaire image

Post by kikeblackberry » Sun Nov 05, 2017 5:30 pm


When importing a IES file, obviously it is impossible to load a image file of the luminaire. On Documentation reports EVO insert a message “See our luminaire catalog for an image of the luminaire”. When a project has many luminaires references it will be not practical.

I think will be helpful if EVO allow import an image for desired luminaire maybe at the moment of importing photometric file or double-clicking on black and white bulb image on “active luminaire” data.

Thank you

Dear kikeblackberry,

IES and LDT files are only photometric files displayed in a rather simple geometric shape. Solely the luminaire manufacturers (who applied a DIALux license) have the opportunity to include pictures, description texts or a 3D realistic model of the luminaire by means of the internal format of DIALux "ULD".

Best regards,
