Computational BIM Workshop & Forum—Beginner

Monday, November 13, 2017


Learn basic visual programming and scripting

Combine logic, geometry, math, and BIM 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. Basic understanding of computer programming and scripting is helpful but not required.

Need a bigger challenge? You may be ready for our Computational BIM Workshop & Forum—Advanced.



  • Visual programming UI

    Learn how even novice users can use Dynamo to drive BIM with advanced parametric logic.

  • Data mining

    Pull information out of BIM and use it for visualization and documentation.

  • Form finding and documentation

    Create building elements and views from data sources like Excel or other BIM elements.

    • 5:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m.

    • Breakfast
      Get a head start on networking—breakfast with your peers before you begin your Computational BIM training.

    • Part 1
      Introduction to visual programming—no prior experienced required. Dynamo visual programming gives you an easy way to program. We’ll start with simple graph node diagramming.

    • Networking lunch
      Join your peers to compare notes, share ideas, and make new contacts while you enjoy lunch.

    • Part 2
      Understand the basics of using the underlying scripting engine in Dynamo, DesignScript. Put earlier computation concepts together with scripts shared by other Dynamo users to solve common office problems like modifying elements.

    • Recess and snack

    • 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.
