AutoLUX software is a collection of commands which are added to the standard repertoire of AutoCAD.
These additional commands provides a calculation engine and many drawing editing commands to facilitate drawing completed scheme design. Luminaires and target points enter the drawing as CAD entities, and the calculated results are shown as text or as contours. The full power of AutoCAD remains available to you for manipulating all of these entities.

Light Level Calculations as Points or Contours
AutoLUX plots light levels as numbers on a grid, and also supports colored contours, that are fully customizable.
Roadway Calculations Quickly Determined from Standard Parameters
Quickly evaluate performance of standard roadway layouts using a choice of 15 different standard layouts: 6 with a single road/carriageway, and 9 more with a dual carriageway (median-divided).
Sports Facilities Easily Evaluated in Automatic Drawing Routines
Automatic creation of commonly-used sports facilities and optional creation of the target grids inside them for light level calculations.
3D Obstructions Included in Vertical and Planar Calculations
AutoLUX adjusts both planar and vertical calculations where obstructions block light. These can be introduced in your drawing as 3D Faces, solids, or simple extrusions from line or arc geometry.
Illuminance and Luminance Calculations
Calculations include horizontal or vertical Illuminance, roadway and veiling Luminance, and many options and styles can be set for the calculated values.
Custom Symbols and Symbols from KeyLIGHTS
AutoLUX supports the use of custom symbols where the built in ones can be improved to support a better visual effect. The UK standard KeyLIGHTS symbols can also be used.
