Brandon Schumacher

AB6798: Revit Plus Dynamo Equals the Building Calculator

(Duration 01:01:36)

  • Save to my AU Saved

Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Understand Revit software's internal area and massing capabilities, as well as limitations
  • Learn how to construct value-driven parametric massing studies using Revit software and the Dynamo extension for feasibility analysis
  • Learn how to utilize this technique to evaluate as a driver for building geometry updates during later design phases
  • Gain a better understanding of the Dynamo extension as a tool to implement iterative studies throughout the building design process

Description

Description

Capitalizing on the data management capabilities of Revit software coupled with the parametric capabilities of the Dynamo visual programming language extension has incredible potential to inform early design decisions led by the owner, designer, or contractor. This hands-on lab will take the user through a step-by-step process, from accelerated site and zoning analysis through evaluation of proposed designs. Constraints will shape the design exercise in a manner that will prove both informative and timesaving to the parties involved. Participants will leave the lab knowing a new and very effective method for performing real-time, iterative feasibility studies.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Those who author & evaluate buildings in an iterative manner for financial & energy performance metrics.
