This lab is designed for structural engineers and designers who struggle with non-economic and unsustainable structural designs. It is a cliché that in the world of structural engineering, too often we have to face lack of time and impossible design changes that negatively influence the sustainability of a construction. We are challenged in making several structural analysis models, finding the best solution, leading in design of economic structures. In this class you will discover a whole new way of modelling and analysing your structures. You will learn how to create complex structural steel models with Autodesk Dynamo and Autodesk Revit. You will discover how to rewire your analysis system using Autodesk Dynamo and Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis Professional. And finally you will get surprised how easily you can handle almost any complex rebar design in Autodesk Revit with Autodesk Dynamo.

Key Learnings

  • Discuss the power of computational design for structural modelling and engineering
  • Generate complex structural steel models in Revit using Dynamo
  • Rewire the analysis design with Dynamo and Robot Structural Analysis
  • Make custom automated rebar designs for simple and complex structures with Dynamo


Dieter Vermeulen
Working as a technical sales specialist AEC for the Northern European region at Autodesk, Dieter is specialized in the products of the computational design and engineering portfolio. Within that domain he supports the authorised Autodesk channel partners and customers with innovative workflows and solution strategies. He evangelizes the power of computational design with Dynamo in the building and infrastructure industry. This results in workflows covering the process from design, analysis, construction to fabrication for structural steel and reinforced concrete structures in building and infrastructure projects.
