What do architects and engineers want in the early design phase? They want to explore all the possibilities, not be stuck with the first option. They want to be able to change, try, and come back. They want to save time while having an overview of all solutions' alternatives. And that's exactly what Project Fractal, FormIt software, and Dynamo Studio software do for them. It's called generative design, and we'll show you some workflows to help you understand how it can be useful for your work and what you can do with these software. We'll show you how to improve your Building Information Modeling (BIM) process, and how everything can be connected to Revit software.
- Understand what Fractal is and how it works
- Learn how to conceive FormIt in a new way
- Learn how to use Dynamo Studio with both Fractal and FormIt
- Discover the link between FormIt and Revit—the other way around
Elisa BONNAFOUS is a BIM engineer working for ARTELIA, a French engineering company. She obtained her Civil Engineering diploma and worked as owner assistant for the launch of big project. Then, she specialized in BIM process. She focuses on the early design phase and tries to find new ways of working to help engineers to be more involved in BIM process.
Jean-Hugues BONNET is working in France as the BIM Manager for Artelia Building and Industry. Being part of the company Technical and Innovation department, he is in charge of the implementation of the BIM processes and tools for the Building and Industry sector. He also used to manage the BIM processes on projects as a client advisor or within design teams. He obtained a civil engineering degree with a specialization in building construction in 2009. He then put a first step inside the BIM processes through Revit in his first job as a methods engineer during 5 years for a major building company.
