From Revit to FEM and Back-with Use of Dynamo

    The class will show a design process where we use a building model in Revit software for structural analysis. We will optimize the design process using Dynamo programming. We will then use Dynamo to correct the analytical model in Revit and apply loads to the structure. After we've exported the analytical model to a finite element method (FEM) program and analyzed it, we will use Dynamo to write calculation results back to the Revit elements where they can be illustrated.
