Design Master Photometrics is an add-in for AutoCAD and BricsCAD that calculates outdoor illuminance levels. It allows civil engineers and landscape architects to perform their own outdoor site lighting calculations.
Illuminance Levels: Calculate point-by-point illuminance levels on your site plan and have them displayed directly on your drawing.
AutoCAD or BricsCAD Based: Work in the familiar AutoCAD or BricsCAD interface, rather than learning an unfamiliar new program.
Uniformity Ratios: Calculate the uniformity ratios required by your local jurisdiction.
Isolines: Display isolines on your drawing to highlight critical illuminance levels.
Light Fixture Manufacturer Independent: Import IES files from any lighting manufacturer.
Design Changes: Make changes to the design and get immediate feedback on your lighting calculations without waiting for your lighting rep or another consultant.
Light Fixture Schedule: Display a schedule on the drawing of all of the fixtures used in the project.
Buildings, Overhangs, Slopes, and Trees: Model obstructions and different ground elevations to accurately calculate lighting levels.
