What is a .CIB file?

The .CIB file extension refers to a Luminaire Data File. This type of file is primarily used in lighting simulation software, such as DIALux, which is a tool designed for professional lighting planning for both indoor and outdoor environments. A .CIB file contains important information about a light fixture, including its power usage, the amount of light it emits (luminous flux), and the intensity of the light it produces. These files are formatted according to the CIBSE (Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers) standards.

To open a .CIB file, you can use several programs: 1. **DIALux Evo**: This is a popular choice for lighting professionals. To open a .CIB file in DIALux Evo, go to the 'File' menu, choose 'Import', then 'Luminaire files...', find your .CIB file in the directory, and click 'Open'. 2. **ReluxSuite**: Another software used for lighting simulation. 3. **Autodesk 3ds Max 2023**: This is a comprehensive 3D modeling, animation, and rendering software that can also handle .CIB files for projects involving detailed lighting setups. 4. **OxyTech LITESTAR 4D**: This program is used for advanced lighting design and analysis.

It's important to note that .CIB files are similar to other luminaire data files like .LDT, .ELD, and .IES. These files also contain data about lighting fixtures and are used in similar types of lighting design software.
