Computational BIM Workshop & Forum—Advanced

Monday, November 13, 2017

Take visual programming further

If you have experience in Revit and Dynamo and want to take your Dynamo skills to the next level, this workshop is for you. Learn advanced skills to combine computational design and BIM with Dynamo visual programming. We’ll use Dynamo to create customized functions, improve building performance, and interoperate with other applications, data sources, and geometry tools in sophisticated ways. Some familiarity with Dynamo basics like list manipulation, geometry creation, and Revit interaction is required.

Just getting started with computational BIM? You may prefer our Computational BIM Workshop & Forum—Beginner to learn the basics.


Key takeaways

  • Scripting

    Explore DesignScript uses by creating your own functions, looping operations, and using advanced list manipulation tools.

  • Office implementation

    Learn techniques for deploying Dynamo in your office.

  • Building performance

    Use Dynamo and Autodesk analysis tools to improve building performance.

    • Computational Design in Practice
      Learning tools is fun, but it's only the beginning. The next step is harnessing Computational BIM to build script-driven design strategies that give you an advantage in practice. This session features inspiring speakers who have done just that. Hear design leaders tell exciting stories about what they have been able to do with computational design tools and you might even leave with parting gifts that will help get you started.

    • Drinks
      By now your head is swimming with new thoughts and ideas—perfect time to discuss over a drink.
