Light Analysis for Revit

The Light Analysis Revit (LA/R) plug-in uses the Autodesk 360 Rendering cloud service to perform very fast and physically accurate daylighting analyses from within Revit.

This plug-in provides LEED IEQc8.1 2009 and LEED v4 EQc7 opt2 results for most models in less than 15 minutes once the analysis is started. The LA/R is specifically designed for architects to be able to use without learning the difference between the Perez or CIE's sky models, direct normal incident or direct horizontal radiation. Just specify if you want to analyze the whole building, a single or multiple floors, and kick-off the analysis. If you want more control of those parameters, you can use Revit's existing 360 Rendering Advanced Illuminance feature .

See the Lighting Analysis for Revit product page to download the tool and for Getting Started content. For support see BPA/Lighting Analysis Forum .

The LA/R plug-in helps you succeed with your daylighting design challenges as it generates the necessary daylighting simulation results and keeps track of LEED 2009 IEQc8.1and LEED v4 EQc7 opt2 performance during project design.

Results are presented on your Revit elemental model using the Analysis Visualization Framework (AVF) so you can see exactly how daylight is interacting with your Revit model. A room schedule is generated with the necessary results for a LEED submittal. You can also choose to include or not include rooms as regularly occupied spaces as well as to specify automated shades and other details. See LA/R Workflow to learn more about the workflow and details.
