Combine logic, geometry, math, and Building Information Modeling (BIM) 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 expand its capabilities with computation, this workshop is for you. Basic understanding of computer programming and scripting is helpful, but not required. This is a full-day class, including networking opportunities over breakfast, lunch, and drinks. This year we're also introducing a forum at the end of the day that will feature several speakers talking about practical applications of Dynamo to both instruct and inspire. Need a bigger challenge? You may be ready for our "Computational BIM Workshop-Advanced."
