The class will provide a walk-through of a sample project that is automated in the Dynamo visual programming language extension and using the Revit software API (application programming interface). This apples-to-apples comparison will showcase the best uses for each tool, helping attendees to draw their own conclusions as to how the Dynamo extension and/or the Revit software API may fit into their current practices. When is it appropriate to learn and implement the Revit software API? Is the Dynamo extension a flexible enough environment for project-based automation or is it a stepping-stone for the API? These are just some questions we will discuss and try to answer together while discovering some of the features of each tool.
- Discover the Dynamo extension implementation for project automation and how it compares to the Revit software API
- Understand Revit software's API functionality in relation to family placement and manipulation
- Understand when the use of the Dynamo extension may be most beneficial to your current practice
- Understand the Dynamo extension as a possible interface for prototyping Automation Solutions for eventual production in the Revit software API
Nuri joined the advanced technology consultancy of Frank Gehry in 2008. After launching a series of webinars for learning Gehry Technologies' parametric platform, Digital Project, Nuri led training seminars with leading design and construction firms. He has been heavily focused in the areas of knowledge transfer and capture throughout his time at GT. Beyond his earlier focus in design automation and direct to fabrication techniques, Nuri has been supporting collaborative systems for BIM project management and coordination in his role as a Technical Manager. He's always in search of repetition and patterns hiding within the frenzy of daily building design and construction. Nuri believes wholeheartedly that the AEC industry can be elevated through technology that takes on the burden of repetitious work and supports exploration of big data in building projects.
