Question

I am wondering if there is a way to get Radiance to work with Autodesk
Architectural desktop 2005? I can't seem to get the two to interface
correctly. I need it for basic daylighting simulations. Thanks

Hi Brine,

As far as I know desktop radiance only works with Autocad 2000, If you are
trying to install the same on Architectural desktop 2005 It will not work
for my experience too. If you are using a Windows OS , there are
some binaries written, you might want to check
http://www.bozzograo.net/radiance/index.php by Francesco Anselmo. they are
very very helpful. If you have questions you can call me at 480.544.4936. I
live in tempe.

Dear all,
Actually, I am a new user of Radiance, so I have very basic questions regarding this software.
First, I wanted to know whether it can be installed and used on Windows operating systems or it should be used only on Mac.
Also, the older versions of Radiance can be used as a plugin in Autodesk Ecotect. So I wanted to know whether using Radiance with Ecotect would give the same accurate results as using Radiance itself.
Regards,Maryam

Hi Maryam,

It seems that no one has responded to your query, which is unfortunate. We need a FAQ of some sort for these questions, but don't have one at the moment.

Radiance runs best on some version of Unix, but there is of course an installer for Windows as you noted. I do not know the current state of Ecotect or whether it is recommended. There are other interfaces available, such as NREL's OpenStudio and DIVA. There is a fair amount of information in the mailing archives on both, and they have websites you should find easily enough as well.

Best of luck!
-Greg

Hi Maryam,

A Building Performance article on Radiance from way back (1998) may still be useful to help understand the essential difference between UNIX Radiance and any of the 'packaged' (i.e. non-UNIX) versions. Although none of the PC versions mentioned still exist, the general gist of the article still holds. The article was included as Appendix C (Chapter 7) here:
