    This course will explore the use of the Revit software API to enhance creative problem solving in the design process. The Revit API is a powerful tool for extending the Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow and introducing new capabilities. Custom Revit API tools are often created to help with productivity and or build professional add-ins. However, learning the Revit API as a designer can be a powerful way to extend Revit software to facilitate creative problem solving and exploration, and model data visualization. We will explore use cases for using the Revit software API to create stand-alone parametric interfaces and to capitalize on the API within the Dynamo computational design environment. This session features Revit and Dynamo Studio. AIA Approved
