From the Autodesk App Store:


ElumTools™ is the first fully integrated lighting analysis Add-in for Autodesk® Revit®. Leveraging content that is already present in the Revit model such as geometry, material properties and lighting fixture families, ElumTools can calculate illuminance on any surface or workplane using the lighting industry’s standard radiosity calculation method.

An interactive visualization is provided during the calculation process allowing detailed navigation of the illuminated scene. Numeric results are visible in any Revit view and all statistics are available to Revit schedules.

Note: This app uses a custom installer (and not the standard App Store installer).

Trial Description

The ElumTools version available in the Revit Apps Store is a fully functional Trial version valid for 30 days from registration date.
