If CAD software is for designing buildings and other drafting projects, DIALux brings light within those structures. It is a professional lighting design software that a designer can use to calculate and visualize lighting for single rooms, whole floors, buildings and even outdoor scenes.
More than 600,000 lighting designers worldwide use DIALux as a planning tool. Its design features not only include lighting fixtures, but also daylight and other natural and artificial sources of light, making it an all-in-one professional lighting design software.
You can use DIALux to light up an entire building, from one floor to another, and within each room. Use the Daylight feature when you want to combine artificial light with natural light to create a professional lighting design. You can also optimize daylight calculations using the daylight control systems.
Light scenes, on the other hand, allows a designer to adjust lighting designs in individual spaces to adapt to different scenarios. DIALux is also used to create a road lighting design, generating road calculations based on existing standards.
Software features include 3D luminaire models, false colors, value graphs, Raytracer, DWG Import/Export, and outputs. In DIALux 4, emergency lighting and sports facility lighting have been added.
One major benefit of DIALux is that it gives designers a realistic view of what a building would look like with a particular lighting design. Any lighting needs will be addressed before purchase of different luminaires, saving project managers time and money. The software tool is also free, which makes it accessible for everyone.
When used with other plug-ins, such as the GE DIALux Plug-in, creating lighting design will be fast and efficient. And because DIALux is constantly updated, the possibilities of illuminating a room are endless.
Part of what makes DIALux effective and efficient is the skills and knowledge of a designer. There are many factors to consider, most of which can make or break lighting efficiency. So if you need professional lighting design, hire a freelance DIALux designer from Cad Crowd.
