This lab will cover the interoperability workflows that enable teams to use the right tool for the phase of design and each team member’s expertise and skill sets, enabling their imagination to be the limit of their designs rather than the required toolsets. We will cover 2 different methods for importing geometry into Revit software as native content to produce drawings. With the first method, attendees will learn how to use FormIt 360 software to translate SketchUp models into native Revit content. In the second, attendees will be provided with and instructed on how to apply a premade, easy-to-use Dynamo script that will enable importing Rhino software-generated geometry into Revit native content. The techniques in this lab have been developed and tested on a range of project scales, from large transit projects to residential high-rises to small tenant improvement projects with overwhelming success and quantifiable increases in team productivity and efficiency. This session features Revit Architecture, Dynamo Studio, and FormIt 360. AIA Approved

Jeremy Luebker is a design applications technician and a computational designer at the San Francisco office of Perkins+Will, where he helps improve design workflows and tackle design problems with computational design on a range of project scales from large international projects to local projects—and everything in between. In addition to usually working on several projects at once, he oversees the office digital fabrication lab, and he helps project teams to set up design software workflows. Luebker holds a Master of Science degree in architecture focusing on digital technologies from the University of Michigan and a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the California College of the Arts. Additionally, Luebker is involved in a number of research initiatives at Perkins+Will, and volunteers at the local Dynamo user group. His passions include exploring the latest prototyping techniques, 3D printing, and training others to become proficient in this specialized area of design thinking.
