Technological innovations, compliance with standards, the need for resource management and energy efficiency make your projects more complex. This is why planning your lighting projects can become more difficult. Choosing the right lighting design software for your project can offer you significant advantages.

DIALux

DIALux and DIALux evo are free professional lighting design applications. With this free app, you can professionally design, calculate and visualize lighting designs for a single room, entire floor, entire building and outdoor spaces. Interaction between indoor and outdoor spaces, road lighting, daylight, daylight control system and emergency lighting systems can also be simulated with these DIALux software. Due to its ease of use, it is the most preferred software by both the user and the manufacturer. For this reason, more manufacturer catalogs are available for DIALux.

Relux

Relux is a free software that is frequently preferred for lighting and sensor planning for lighting designers. ReluxSuite package includes ReluxPro, ReluxSensor, ReluxOffer, ReluxEnergy. This package contains all the necessary programs and data for professional lighting designers. These programs work in harmony with each other and guarantee the best results. Although Relux is a free software, ReluxTunnel, which makes tunnel lighting calculations, is offered for a fee. ReluxEnergy CH and ReluxCAD are also paid.

AGi32

Although little known software, AGi32 is one of the leading computing tools in the lighting industry. The software can perform numerical analyzes and render visualizations for all kinds of lighting applications such as indoor, outdoor, road and daylight. The program has a price tag of $895, but a 30-day free trial version can be easily downloaded if desired. The interface and usage of the program may be a little more difficult compared to DIALux and Relux.
