As Rhino 6 has come up, will i still be able to run UMI plugin if I buy/purchase the student version of Rhino 5.

I am pursuing my masters in Sustainable Architecture in School of Planning and Architecture,India. I need UMI for completion of mu project " Effects of Urban Forms on Residential Energy Consumption".

UMI is still not supported for Rhino 6 (it's in progress!) so you'll be just fine with Rhino 5 for now.

As I am a student, am having financial problems buying RHINO 5 software, can you allow  its access to 90 days educational trail version of RHINO 5 . I assure you I won't be miss using it, and pure use it for research purpose of my MASTERS IN SUSTAINABLE ARCHITECTURE.

UMI will work fine during your 90 day evaluation period. After the 90 days, no Rhino plugins will work - it's a Rhino limitation that we can't do anything about.

Thank You Cody,

Finally UMI worked in 90 day evaluation period (trial version of RHINO 5). 

Can you please share the link to download URBAN DAYLIGHT that will work wih UMI, am unable to find the link, though i got a lot of papers related to that.

The link provided is which asks to dowload DIVA. is that the Urban DAYLight software?

Urban Daylight is the name of the UMI daylighting simulation module. It's part of UMI, you don't need a separate download.

Am working on this version of UMI and it doesn't show DAYLIGHT AND OUTDOOR THERMAL plugins

Which UMI modules are listed when you run the PluginManager command?

UMI version 2.1.20

No, I mean in the Rhino plugin list, which UMI plugins are present?

Site (F A R), Energy, Mobility and Lifecycle

What .rhp files are in C:\UMI on your computer?

What happens if you manually drag Umi.Daylight into Rhino?

In Short

Umi is a Rhino-based design environment for architects and urban planners interested in modeling the environmental performance of neighborhoods and cities with respect to operational and embodied energy use, walkability and daylighting potential. Since 2012, Umi has been  developed by the Sustainable Design Lab at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with support from a National Science Foundation EFRI_SEED project, the MIT Energy Initiative, the Kuwait-MIT Center, the Center for Complex Engineering Systems (CCES) at KACST and MIT, Transsolar Climate Engineering and United Technologies Corporation. Further tool developed is now also being conducted at the Environmental Systems Lab at Cornell University.

A first public version of Umi was released during a public symposium on Sustainable Urban Design on May 6th 2013 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Version 2.0, which also includes an embodied energy module, was released on November 7th 2014.
