We’ve all seen the Dynamo extension used for twisting dramatic towers, and we’ve even seen it used to recreate some of our favorite Star Wars characters. But if you’re a general contractor or work in the construction industry, you may be wondering if Dynamo can do anything for you. In this class, we will demonstrate real construction problems that were solved with the Dynamo extension. You will see demonstrations analyzing slab flatness, cut-and-fill volume calculation, and installation simulation. With the skills and examples taught in this class, you will learn ways that Dynamo could be a game changer for your business too. This session features Dynamo Studio and Revit. AIA Approved
