Have you ever heard of the Dynamo visual programming language extension in Revit software and wanted to know what it was all about? The Dynamo extension is not just for tower twisters and super-advanced programmersthe Dynamo extension is for every Revit user. The Dynamo extension uses a visual programming language, but it is an easy language to understand. In this lab attendees will get very gradual doses of the Dynamo extension and its programming environment so they gain the skills to make the Dynamo extension work in their everyday workflows with Revit software. No programming experience or complex modeling experience needed to attend this lab. You only need a little Revit experience.
Any Revit users who want to learn about Dynamo and extend the functionality of Revit
Marcello Sgambelluri is the Building Information Modeling (BIM) director at John A. Martin & Associates, Inc., in Los Angeles, California. Marcello is heavily devoted to helping advance the use and knowledge of BIM Solutions within the architecture, engineering, and construction community. He is well known for modeling elements and creating workflows that others did think not possible. He also frequently presents at Autodesk University, where attendees voted him the top-rated speaker for 2 years in a row. He has worked on many well-known projects in the past, including the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, California; the Ray and Maria Stata Center at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology; and the Tom Bradley International Terminal Expansion at Los Angeles International Airport. Marcello received BS and MS degrees in civil engineering, and he is a licensed civil and structural engineer.

The visual programming interface of Dynamo is enabling structural engineers with the tools to build optimized structures with minimal energy, and subsequently make their own design tools. Based on the Revit Platform, we can use our creativity to develop optimized structural systems using computational logic in an advanced building information modeling environment. This lab will teach participants how to create and iterate computational space frames with native Revit Framing elements and Adaptive Components, and how these can be used in structural analysis.
