Calculux is a light simulation tool that helps professionals all over the world in making the right decisions about lighting by showcasing their light and shadow projections in any given area. To use this software, users first have to create a digital prototype of their construction plan on the platform.
Its advanced AI gives users maximum scalability for both interior and exterior designs. For doing this, they can either import data from other sources or use this platform’s original tools. In addition to helping with fixture spacing and footcandle levels it also has tools that help with estimating finances and making measurements. Users can even create and compare different lightning designs simultaneously to arrive at a conclusion. Some of this software’s key features include a Custom interface, interactive dashboard, preview, user-help, graphs, charts, status bar, and reports.
AGI 32 is a tool that is used for designing light projects by enabling users to check the light and shadow projections in an environment set by the user. Its advanced AI provides full scalability to a user, allowing him to replicate his designs in photo-realistic quality. The user can add interior and exterior designs, as well as any objects in linear or non-linear shapes. These qualities make this a tool of choice for architects, engineers, contractors, and light designers. Apart from this, it can also calculate glare metrics and the amount of energy that will be spent using different light designs. These light patterns can be compared with several international standards for code compliance.
Accuracy of output, graphical interface, agility, customer help, data import/export, file formats support, fixture spacing utilities, and powerful toolset are among the many of this platform’s core features.
Radiance is a light simulation tool that enables users to see how light will appear in different interior and exterior settings. This software uses octree-data structure and ray tracing technology to generate the best results.
To use this, the users have to create a digital prototype of the place where they are installing the lights. While doing this, they can either take the help of the software’s own tools or import the design from another source. This platform features a powerful toolset that helps with geometrical changes, rendering, image manipulation, and analytics. Some of its most formidable features include accuracy of output, flexibility, animations, and generators.
Microlux is a platform that lends small loans to people with minimal interest called ‘microcredits’. Apart from the money, borrowers are offered professional coaching as well to assist them with their financial undertakings. As of now, its services are available only in Luxembourg.
Loans are offered both to existing enterprises and new businesses. This platform offers loans for a maximum of 25,000 Euros, with payment duration varying from twelve months to four years. Money is repaid in monthly installments with interest rates not exceeding 6.20%. However to get a loan, it is imperative that Microlux’s credit committee approve your loan request. Application is evaluated on the basis of various factors such as the plan’s cohesion, borrower’s repayment capacity, and the borrower’s professionalism, and attitude.
LightCalc is a light simulation software that enables users to accurately plan a lighting setup in any construction design. This software is used to predict how the lights will appear in a specific location i.e. lights shades, textural variation in nearby objects, and shadow projections. But before this, you have to create a graphical prototype of the place for which you are planning lights.
Once this is done, this software has a dynamic range of tools to assist you with fixture spacing, footcandle levels, and much more. All these projections are depicted in the form of easy to comprehend charts and graphs, making it possible for even novice users to work with the information. Lastly, this software also makes grid layout recommendations helping users to arrive at a decision. Some of this platform’s most formidable features include user-help, custom interface, automation, reliability, Art lighting, and support for Square law and Lumen methods.
Visual 3D is software that enables users to draw graphical prototypes of architectural designs and image light projections in them in a real-life setting. Its strong AI ensures the accuracy of output with photorealistic designs.
The platform features a dynamic toolset, featuring tools for wall wash, area, roads, interior designs, floodlights, photometric, and much more. It can even perform measurements and estimate costs. While creating designs, the data can be exported and imported to and from other sources. The platform features support for a dynamic range of plugins ensuring enhanced scalability.
Among its many important features include a graphical interface, custom reports, tables, charts, data format support, user guide, support for inverse dynamics, and automation.
