Conference Sessions

Computational BIM Workshop – Dynamo for Revit for BeginnersClick to Open

Level: Basic

Discuss how to combine logic, geometry, math, and BIM (Building Information Modeling) with Dynamo visual programming. We’ll use Dynamo to drive a Revit document and interoperate with other applications, data sources, and modeling tools. If you already have some experience with Revit and are looking to expand its capabilities with computation, this workshop is for you. In this long-format hands-on lab, we’ll introduce you to the basics of using Dynamo for Revit. We’ll explore how the two tools interface; the basics of building a Dynamo graph; and the logic, form, and structure of graphs—and we’ll help you understand how to apply what you’ve learned to your own solutions after the workshop. A basic understanding of Revit software and computer programming and scripting is helpful, but not required.

Revit Family Creation: A Step-by-Step Introduction (Just For Beginners)Click to Open

Level: Basic

step-byMaybe you know the power of Revit software’s Family Editor but you’ve avoided it, or it’s intimidated you until now. Wait no more. This lab will introduce you to the basics of Family Editor. Once you get past being intimidated, you will find that while Family Editor is extremely powerful, it can actually be great fun. In this short introduction to Family Editor, we’ll create a Revit component family complete with constraints and parameters. Don’t worry if you don’t know what a constraint or parameter is—we’ll cover that too. Whether you’ve never worked in Revit software before, or you’ve used Revit for a while but you’ve simply avoided Family Editor, this lab will teach you the basics of the Family Editor in a simple step-by-step fashion, and in the best way possible: hands-on! (The session will use architectural examples, but the concepts apply to all flavors of the Revit software, including Revit LT.)
