    Released in 2018, BHoM (Buildings and Habitats object Model) is an open-source platform that enables open workflows between many software packages within the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. Created by Buro Happold, this tool is especially relevant to structural engineers. With this tool, users can develop structural analysis models using Dynamo, Grasshopper, or Microsoft Excel, and then generate structural analysis models to most commercial software packages. Users can then generate Revit models for documentation. In this class, you’ll get an overview of the current state of structural analysis workflows and how BHoM can add value to your structural workflows. We'll also demo several analyses to documentation workflows to show the capabilities of the tool. Lastly, we'll show how users can run lifecycle analysis using BHoM to evaluate the embodied carbon of buildings.
