This presentation will be looking at Dialux 4.13, the unsupported yet favoured and fully functional software. It will look to discuss the workflow and functions, the benefits (Sports & Emergency) and the limitations (support, Windows, workflow, daylight, speed).

Following this, the presentation will move on to Dialux evo, the new software on the block, that seems to have been around for a long time but is un-used by many. It will explore the ways that it is different - the UI, workflow, calculations and flexibility. Also exploring how it develops on to work with newer ideas and larger projects, how it makes workflow easier, but it does feel way different, scary even! We’ll also look at where it is so much better (daylight, buildings, speed, BIM, rendering, objects & outputs) and where we are still struggling (emergency & sports).

This presentation will involve a few slides, but mainly live operation of the software to show how it differs and answer you questions.
