The visual programming interface of Dynamo is enabling structural engineers with the tools to build optimized structures with minimal energy, and subsequently make their own design tools. Based on the Revit Platform, we can use our creativity to develop optimized structural systems using computational logic in an advanced building information modeling environment. This lab will teach participants how to create and iterate computational space frames with native Revit Framing elements and Adaptive Components, and how these can be used in structural analysis.
- Learn what Dynamo is, and why we want to make our own Structural Design tools.
- Learn how to use Dynamo to create Computational Space Frame Structures.
- Learn how to integrate the structural analysis tools in Revit software with the Dynamo extension and conceptual modeling
- Learn how to integrate Structural Analysis tools in Revit with Dynamo and Conceptual Modeling.
Håvard Vasshaug is a structural engineer, Revit power user and Digital Design Manager at Dark, one of Norway's largest planning, architecture and interior design practices. He has vast experience providing Revit training, solutions and seminars for architects and engineers at Autodesk Authorized Training Centres the past 8 years, and now uses this background to share knowledge of Revit solutions at Dark and to whoever else that enjoys it.He is a part of the Autodesk BIM Open Source Project Steering Committee, and a member of the program committee of, and presenter at The Smart Drawing Conference. He also presented at Autodesk University 2012 and Revit Technology Conference North America 2013.Håvard is an enthusiastic blogger and national Revit forum administrator. Collaborating with Autodesk, he is a member of the IFC Nordic Customer Council, a dedicated Revit Beta contributor, a member of the Building Participatory Design Pane, and a very, very proud Revit Gunslinger.
