Computational design isn’t just for crazy geometry anymore. Learn to use the Dynamo extension to extract performance data about your Revit software project to see for yourself the health of your project. Determine which families and types are used most and least often, how much of your CAD content is imported or referenced, and where your loaded families came from, all by comparing what’s in your project to what’s in your template. Use Dynamo to collect performance information on the Revit software installation itself by parsing a journal file to answer the questions: Which add-ins are installed? How long does it take to save or sync a project? Are there conflicts with unsupported hardware? This session features Revit and Dynamo Studio.<br /><br /> AIA Approved
