I Cant do the simulation when there's so many Illuminance Map in 1 Zone, in Different space. In my Building Model, i decide to break the space into 6 different zone and each zone with 1 Illuminance Map. But Why the Simulation doesn't not complete to finish. oh ya, i use 1 Thermal Zone for all illuminance Map and Space. Hope you can help me.

This is my zone, there is 6 Zone This is Preview Zone in Sketchup

This is My model

With profound apologies, the Radiance measure does not support multiple illuminance maps per thermal zone. It's a pity, because this is really the only way to do what you are attempting, which is to have an irregularly-shaped illuminance map. Ideally we'd support both of these things, the need for both is noted and is on the dev team's radar, but there are multiple targets on said radar.

Could results from individual illuminance map calculations be superimposed via post-processing?

Absolutely. It's a non-trivial problem, but the data needed for these kinds of visualizations is all available after a simulation with the Radiance measure.
