ElumTools v2018.4, 2017.7, & 2016.11

ElumTools New Features

These features are included in the latest releases of ElumTools 2018, 2017, and 2016.

Isolines and Spatial Maps

ElumTools now has two new tools to help you evaluate the gradient of light across a workplane or surface: Isolines and Spatial Maps. Isolines are contour lines drawn through values of equal illuminance and Spatial Maps are partially transparent shaded color plots showing similar gradients. You can use the two tools independently or together in the ElumTools calculation viewer.

Spatial Maps and Isolines

Exterior Pole-Mounted Luminaire Families

We have also added two new pole-mounted exterior families to the ElumTools luminaire families collection. These are highly flexible families that can simulate most pole mounted area and roadway configurations including uneven mounting heights and even side by side.
