Description

The architecture, engineering, and construction industry is facing the need to provide the best design and engineering solutions within tight deadlines. Generative design is one of the most powerful approaches to overcoming this challenge by automating and exploring all possible design variations according to a set of design parameters. This class will show that generative design can be used for MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) design engineering. This class will use Revit 2019 software, Dynamo Visual Studio, and Project Fractal for MEP generative design. Specifically, you will discover how to create a ceiling plan via generative design, where the layout of air terminal devices and lighting devices will be automatically generated and explored. Moreover, we’ll explore thousands of design variations and coordinate them across disciplines by using Project Fractal. Hence, better design optimization can be accomplished in early stages, helping to make it easier to follow an integrated project delivery process and enhancing the decision-making process.

Session generative design scripts can be downloaded from here: https://goo.gl/mUTZAM (may need to copy/paste link)

Key Learnings

  • Learn how to get started with Dynamo Visual Studio and Project Fractal for MEP design engineering and MEP disciplines coordination by using generative design
  • Learn how to use generative design for automation of air-terminal-devices allocation and exploration of thousands of design variations
  • Learn how to use generative design for automation of lighting-devices allocation and exploration of thousands of design variations
  • Learn how to use generative-design output from Project Fractal into Revit 2018 via Dynamo BIM
