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".

Drag and drop loaded plug-in C:\Umi\Umi.Daylight.rhp   

this is on the rhino screen but no change in UMI

Cody Rose said:

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

1. Is it now listed in the plugin list (shown with PluginManager) as loaded and enabled?

2. Do you have access to an UmiSimulateDaylight command?

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.
