DIAL has recently released the latest version of the lighting design and calculation software DIALux. This free of charge and complete software is developed for professional lighting design.
Receiving data from an architect is the normal start for the lighting designer. Supported formats are DXF, DWG and STF. The latest innovation is the gbXML interface to DIALux. All mayor CAD manufacturers support this interface. The Green Building XML (gbXML) open schema helps to facilitate the transfer of building geometry and properties stored in a 3D BIM database (e.g. Revit, ArchiCAD) to analysis tools like DIALux.
