This class will explore DynaShape, a free and open-source Dynamo package for constraint-based form finding, optimization, and physics simulation. DynaShape helps you design exciting, creative, and practical architectural forms based on understandings of clever geometric principles combined with the magic of computational algorithms. We will introduce you to powerful and fun-to-use conceptual design tools and techniques that are quite unusual in Dynamo and Revit software. All will take place directly inside the familiar Dynamo environment, with interactive visual feedback.
- Learn about the DynaShape package for Dynamo
- Understand some useful geometric and physical principles in computational design
- Learn how to design complex architectural geometries in a practical way
- See how computation can help expand design possibilities
