Electric Lighting

New Generation Electric Lighting Analysis

Seamlessly Work with Revit

Import BIM with ease: Selectively work with and isolate any fixture, IES files, geometry or families in your Revit model.

Highlight spaces of interest: Analyze the full building with options to trim to individual spaces of interest.

Design in LightStanza or Revit: Maintain the Revit workflow or work in both.*

Use IES default material reflectances: LightStanza can automatically normalize surface reflectances in the architectural model to the IES or custom standards.

Automatically sync results: Changes in Revit update in LightStanza and fixture placements and schedules in LightStanza sync back to Revit.

Superior Project Management

Superior Project Management

Dramatically increase productivity: Significantly reduce time creating lighting designs.

Work directly with BIM & CAD geometries--no more tedious remodeling: Develop lighting designs directly on Revit, SketchUp, Rhino or ArchiCAD models.

Complete interior or exterior lighting designs: LightStanza allows designers to iterate both interior and exterior lighting creations.

Simplified Normal and Emergency Calculation Workflow: Tag and adjust individual or entire families of fixtures as emergency and run them simultaneously!

Quickly isolate spaces of interest: Crop to areas of interest to reduce the complexity of your model with the ability to return to your whole model and refocus.

Flexible & Intuitive Workflow

No more tedious exporting of plans: Holistically work on multi-story buildings with automatic generation of 2D lighting plan views from 3D CAD or BIM models.

Directly manipulate fixtures in 2D & 3D: Move and adjust luminaires with the click of a button.

Calculation history: LightStanza records every calculation result for easy retrieval so you don't have to recalculate previous studies while exploring design options.

Stretch linear fixtures with ease: Prorate fixture length and size in BIM and LightStanza will adjust the IES file accordingly.

Work anywhere on anything: Flexible online environment that runs calcs in the cloud, freeing your computer and allowing you to work on multiple designs at once.

In this webinar you will learn how to:

  • Work in a hybrid environment either in Revit or online to facilitate lighting design layouts.
  • Easily extract geometry and materials from various 3D formats (Revit and others) and 2D data from dxf, pdf and other formats to be used as a base-model. 
  • Simultaneously run normal, emergency, interior and exterior calcs in the cloud and have an online calc history.  This allows you to run multiple calcs at once, avoiding bogging down your computer and allowing for easy retrieval of calculations so you won’t have to find raw data files on disk.
  • No need to have a high-end computer to run and review lighting calcs.  Can directly connect to LightStanza’s high-speed, secure web connection to work, without having the need to go through an office VPN/portal.  
  • Automatically create ambient lighting layouts either for a generic box, or in the context of a specific 3D space you are working in.  This will accelerate designing layouts for routine spaces.
  • Automatic LEED daylight calculator, ability to streamline LEED electric lighting (LPD numbers) and WELL circadian calculations.   
  • Collaborate by tagging colleagues who can review/discuss your work without having to install any software.  Lighting designers can more easily coordinate with electrical engineering colleagues, and vice versa as well as improved communication with architects, and clients.

Collaborative Lighting Design

Instantly share LightStanza designs: Eliminate sending files by tagging colleagues to directly comment on results.

Work asynchronously: Comment directly within designs or write annotation comments directy on reports.

Collaborative libraries: Create luminaire libraries to directly share with your teammates.

Efficient assistance: Tag LightStanza technical support directly in your design.

Check out our compatability!

"LightStanza helped us analyze complex geometry and compare several different options for artificial lighting in the Oklahoma Capitol Dome. It was a challenging task for us to take on. We were able to use our geometry and light fixtures from Revit to generate an accurate analysis environment, then LightStanza IES adjustment tools helped us fine-tune the lighting. The ability to tweak the IES files and to see those changes in 3D were critical to our process."
