Description

How do you go from crawling to running Dynamo extension for Revit software? Baby steps. Don't expect advanced math theories or abstract spaghetti buildings in this class. We will methodically walk you through 5 simple and practical examples that will save you pain and time in uncovering the basic principles of the Dynamo extension. The practical examples start with installing Dynamo and the 3 most useful packages that the Dynamo community offers. You will make a wall and floor, then make walls, floors and levels based on a property line; add flexible auditorium seating; and then export relevant information to Microsoft Excel. We will also display property lines and data in 3D, as well as find the distance from a wall to a property line. You can expect to walk out of this class with 5 practical Dynamo extension example files and the confidence needed to run with Dynamo extension. This session features Revit and Dynamo Studio.
