Often project teams find themselves executing repetitive work in relation to drafting, data entry, and coordination. If you have ever thought that there must be a better way, or your ears perk up when you hear the phrase "there's an app for that," this will retain your attention. In this course we explore the common, daily uses of Dynamo extension for Revit software to improve project team efficiency, and we’ll demonstrate how you can create graphs that are functional across multiple disciplines, are project agnostic, and will win you praise at your office. Through the exploration and application of practical Dynamo for Revit workflow concepts, project teams can anticipate improved efficiency and productivity through various phases of the project. This course will apply to any users of Revit software across all disciplines who are already engaged, or who have a general understanding of Dynamo extension and are looking to extend its functionality within Revit workflows. This session features Dynamo Studio and Revit. AIA Approved

Ron Allen is an Arc IV/ BIM Manager with AECOM through the B+P (Buildings and Places) in the Greenwood/Denver Office. <br/><br/>Ron's career has been constantly evolving and refining process and production with emerging technologies. Beginning with BASIC programming and electronics as a hobby in 1984, the pursuit of technology and its uses turned to formal study at Mississippi State University. At MSU he integrated several aspects of his education which included Computer science ( UNIX on VAX systems and SCI Indigo systems, programming ANSI C, PASCAL, COBOL), and Art which included Wave front 3D animation and modeling, Alias, Alias Up Front, Matador and video production, B&W Photography & music. The most prominent education was Architectural studies, it was then he began using Soft Desk (AutoCAD Architecture's predecessor) and AutoCAD. By 1998 he had Bachelors in Architecture with undeclared minors in Art and Computer Science. <br/><br/>His professional career started in Architecture in 1998. In 2006 he started using Revit which changed everything. Since 2006 he has worked production and BIM management on several projects across many Architectural Business lines from interiors, through residential, production housing, commercial, low/mid/high rise, hospitality, medical, military, industrial, themed, and transit.<br/><br/>In his current position at AECOM and an Arc IV/BIM Manager he is continuing the integration and exploration of new and useful technologies including Databases, LIDAR, UAVs, Photogrammetry, IOT, Electronics, VR, AR, Model manager, Model compare, the A360 Suite including Autodesk Navis, C4R, BIM 360 Glue, Docs.
