This lecture introduces participants to the fundamentals of visual programming within the Autodesk Vasari and Revit conceptual design environment. Custom code gives users the ability to efficiently automate many design tasks while also enabling new generative design capabilities. This lecture shows how to compose useful scripts using Dynamo Visual Programming for Revit and Autodesk Vasari software. The lecture provides users with resources and step-by-step examples for automating geometry creation, adjusting family parameters using external data, and sharing information with different design platforms.
- Create complex interactions with visual programming
- Create compact custom functionality to share with colleagues
- Take advantage of existing family content
- Combine parametric modeling with analysis to help drive decisions early in the design process
Zach Kron is a senior product manager at Autodesk, where he focuses on generative and parametric technologies. Since 2007 he has been involved in the research and implementation of software that drives real world building projects and democratizes advanced design practices. In addition to internal teaching and curriculum development at Autodesk, Zach has helped create and run workshops at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture, Autodesk University, and many other venues. Before joining Autodesk, Zach worked as a designer in several Boston-area architectural offices on projects ranging in scale from furniture to bridges.
