    From air handlers to air diffusers, mechanical engineers make a lot of calculations regarding equipment when designing a building. This class is designed to help you reduce the amount of time and effort it takes to complete them, while improving consistency. We’ll dive into each calculation for a variety of air-side and water-side equipment, and we’ll look at how to complete hundreds of them in a few minutes using Dynamo, and then transfer that data to Revit software. We’ll also look at placement in the model and automatic scheduling in Revit.

    Key Learnings

    • Learn how to import Excel data into Dynamo
    • Learn how to calculate equipment sizes (RHCs, VAVs, diffusers/returns, AHUs, water-side components) in Dynamo
    • Learn how to place family instances in Revit
    • Learn how to automatically schedule equipment in Revit
