Street Lighting Calculation- Difference in pole distance

Dear all,

I have to make a dialux street calculation of an existing road. The existing road has street luminaires in different distances between each one. To be more specific, the distance between the first and the second luminaire is 25m, between the second and the third is 30m and between the third and the forsth is 23m. Moreover, the the height of the pole differs too. (the first lamp is at 9m height, the second is at 7m height, the third is at 5,5m and finally the forth is at 6,3 m height). How could is simulate this scenatio in the dialux street project?

Dear dfrag,

Unfortunately it is not possible to construct such a road with our DIALux software as a standardized street project. It is only possible to calculate roads with equal distances between each other and with equal pole heights.

To realize such a project you could construct such a road with the help of ground elements in an exterior scene.
You can use “street valuation fields”, which are special calculation surfaces, to get proper calculation results (see attached screenshot).

Kind regards,
