Presentation Description:
Our dinner parties are likely a lot different these days, whether held virtually with friends or limited to immediate family, but they are still a lot of work to plan. Deciding what to serve, determining who’s bringing what, and getting everything on the table at the right time takes a lot of coordination and effort. In fact, it’s not too different from designing a building. While BIM makes the process a little easier, it brings its own challenges to the party. Like any good chef, it’s important for architects to know some tricks and shortcuts to cut down your time in the “kitchen”. Fortunately for us, there’s Dynamo. Dynamo is a great tool for automating tasks in Revit. In this fun and informative session, you’ll learn some time-saving Dynamo “recipes” that will help make your next project faster and a LOT tastier.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the basics of visual programming, such as inputs, outputs and managing lists.
  • Learn how to break down complex tasks into manageable steps suitable for automation.
  • Learn how to extend the power of Dynamo using outside applications like Excel
  • Create a series of time-saving Dynamo scripts using a pre-built template
