Computational BIM Workshop: Beginner Dynamo for Revit

Collapse Expand


Discuss how to combine logic, geometry, math, and BIM (Building Information Modeling) 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. In this long-format hands-on lab, we’ll introduce you to the basics of using Dynamo for Revit. We’ll explore how the two tools interface; the basics of building a Dynamo graph; and the logic, form, and structure of graphs—and we’ll help you understand how to apply what you’ve learned to your own solutions after the workshop. A basic understanding of Revit software and computer programming and scripting is helpful, but not required.

Key Learnings

  • Learn the basics of Dynamo for Revit, how the two work together, and how to build your first graph
  • Learn about key concepts like input and output, list usage, and management and lacing
  • Learn how to break down a problem into simple manageable steps and construct the logic of your graph
  • Learn how to interact with outside tools like Excel and AutoCAD using Dynamo as the conduit to this outside data
