    From air handlers to air diffusers, mechanical engineers make a lot of calculations regarding equipment when designing a building. This class aims to 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 airside and waterside pieces of equipment, and cover how to complete hundreds of them in milliseconds using Dynamo, and how to 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, waterside components, and more) in Dynamo
    • Learn how to place elements in Revit using Dynamo
    • Learn how to automatically schedule equipment in Revit
