Dynamo and computation BIM for Revit

Automate Everyday Revit Tasks with DynamoClick to Open

Level: Basic

Do you find yourself frequently having to perform the same task several times over the course of a project? Are there workflows that your firm relies on that are not easily achieved with native Revit tools and techniques? Do you ever find yourself thinking that your current procedures are just not maximizing the promise or potential of your BIM? It’s times like these where a little Dynamo can be just the thing. In this session, we will walk through some complete workflows to automate common repetitive tasks and more importantly, give end users the confidence they need to know that the resulting data they see is correct and accurate. This session will explore using Dynamo to design a workflow that solves a simple repetitive task in Revit. We’ll discuss the problem, walk through the design of the solution, and explore the Dynamo graph piece by piece. Don’t worry if you are new to Dynamo or programming, we’ll keep it simple, approachable, understandable and free from complex code.

The Architect’s Dynamo: Getting Non-Revit Users Involved!Click to Open

Level: Basic

Dynamo brings the power of visual programming into your Revit workflow. Dynamo is undergoing rapid development, has a huge community of supporters and is now built right into Revit! This class is designed to show architectural offices how you can utilize Dynamo to enhance your Revit workflows and even involve your non-Revit users in the Revit environment. The class will cover how Revit can extract data from external software for use in manipulating an architectural building design. Let’s do some Dynamo!

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.

Code Blocks Not Required – Dynamo (for Revit) for the Rest of UsClick to Open

Level: Basic

If you use Revit software every day as your primary production tool, you may often run into tedious tasks that you wish you could accomplish more quickly and efficiently. Have you heard that the Dynamo extension can help? But what if you’re not a programmer? Far too many tutorials start by dragging nodes and then end up writing code. If you’ve been frustrated trying to learn Dynamo because it seems all you ever see are code blocks, do not fear—this class uses NO code blocks. We will explore some very practical things you can do to automate your Revit software workflow, all with existing nodes. I repeat, there are no code blocks in this session. Just nodes and wires (and some logic). So, if you want to get a solid introduction to Dynamo for Revit software and come away with some practical examples that you can do back in the office without learning a ton of code, this is the class for you! This session features Revit, Dynamo, and Revit Architecture.
