i3DOP– Photometric application instantly performs a lighting analysis and allows a light fixture to be positioned and repositioned by the touch of a finger, allowing users to see how fixture positions dynamically affect light output. Photo mode simulates the actual light output on the grid surface and thermal mode shows potential “hot spots” as well as the shape and uniformity of the light. Once the lighting design is completed it can be emailed to a client. The application provides six isolines that can be set to foot-candles or lux, and the grid scale can be set to feet or meters.
