Lighting calculations with Dialux

27.11.2017

Knowing how many lights are needed and how many lux a space requires is essential for a space to be user-friendly and comfortable to use. A software I just discovered, DiaLux, allows me to calculate if my lighting is adequate by drawing up the building, changing the materials in order to take their characteristics into account and import lights from online catalogs.

DiaLux then shows the lux levels at a certain height in the space and allows the designer to make appropriate modifications. It is very useful and efficient.
