PLUGINS FOR LIGHTSTANZA

Plugins for LightStanza are tools that make exporting your model to LightStanza as easy, fast, and reliable as possible.

Revit

Officially supported versions:  2019, 2020, 2021

You must use the plugin to import a Revit model into LightStanza. It transforms your Revit “rooms” into illuminance grids (areas that measure daylight in your model), compiles electric lighting data for simulation, and more.  The version here will always be the most current release, while the version on the AutoDesk App store is likely to be slightly behind.

If you already have a previous version of the plugin installed, please uninstall it first by searching for “LightStanza” in the Add or Remove Programs menu. If already running, Revit will need to be restarted to load the newly installed version

SketchUp

Officially supported versions: 2017, 2018, 2019

You must use the plugin to import a SketchUp model into LightStanza (or export as a Collada .dae file first). This plugin is the fastest and most-reliable way to import a SketchUp model. Download from the SketchUp Extension Warehouse to get the most recent official release of the plugin.  Alternatively, you can use the direct download link to get the most recent pre-release version, which may contain untested functionality.

Rhino

LightStanza does not currently provide a Rhino plugin, but you can still upload your Rhino models directly to LightStanza by dragging and dropping them into an empty design.
