Fast and accurate lighting analysis

Lighting Analysis for Revit is a fast cloud service that uses A360 Rendering to expose electric and solar lighting results directly on the Revit model. The results are validated against Radiance, a commonly used simulation tool, and displayed in-canvas more quickly. The service also offers automated daylighting analysis for LEED.

Overview video

Perform LEED lighting analysis in as little as 20 minutes, right within Revit. Watch overview video (2:23 min.)


Automated daylighting for LEED

Daylight analysis just got easier. We built this Revit extension so architects can generate valid analysis results without becoming specialists.

This automated feature enables more designers to investigate daylighting strategies and collaborate more effectively with lighting experts. Specify whether you want to analyze the whole building or single or multiple floors, and begin the analysis. The service supports LEED v3 IEQc8.1 and LEED v4 IEQ Daylight Credit, Option 2, and automatically generates the information you need for LEED compliance.
