    This class will present a new approach to the structural analysis and design workflow. Utilizing Structural Analysis for Revit software and the Dynamo extension in collaboration with third-party software, an automated workflow will be achieved between conceptual model, analysis, and design. The class will show the ability to connect innovative 3D modeling data with traditional calculation methods. By using Revit software as a modeling platform and the Dynamo extension as a data extraction and export tool, this streamlined workflow can revolutionize the current approach to analysis and design. The proposed workflow can be standardized to each user’s preference and used repeatedly across multiple projects. Specific project needs can be included seamlessly into the workflow. The class will explore this workflow as it has been used for a structural seismic retrofit project located at NASA’s (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) Ames Research Center in Moffett Federal Airfield in California. This session features Revit Structure, Dynamo Studio, and Robot Structural Analysis. AIA Approved
