    Moving designs from conceptual modelers into Revit software for Building Information Modeling (BIM) and documentation has been a thorn in the side of the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry for years, requiring specialist knowledge or just plain black magic. With the development of the Rhynamo package for Dynamo visual programming language extension (Revit's computational design plug-in), interoperability and model round tripping have never been easier. These case studies will discuss the various successes and pitfalls of how the Woods Bagot Design Technology Team have used a Dynamo-plus-Rhynamo workflow on several globally significant AEC projects over the past year, and emphasize the importance of being able to simultaneously design, document, and deliver at any stage of the project.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn how to move geometry and data back and forth between Rhino/Grasshopper into Revit/Dynamo
    • Learn how to apply Rhino and Grasshopper geometry metadata as Revit type and instance parameters
    • Discover the 2-step process of converting Rhino geometry to Dynamo DesignScript geometry to native Revit elements
    • Learn how to add complexity and/or data to Rhino/Grasshopper geometry in Dynamo
