Description

Parametric tools are still sitting in a niche corner and, incorrectly, considered applicable only to equally niche projects. This talk will demonstrate how a basic understanding of Grasshopper software and the Dynamo extension can add massive value to a design team (and I will quantify said value to help you convince the skeptics). This class will demonstrate simple workflows in Dynamo, Grasshopper, Microsoft Excel, and Revit software that we developed to help us efficiently design and document a new stadium in Sydney, Australia. These tools helped us reduce our documentation time by more than 500 hours (50%). These simple tools were developed in both Dynamo and Grasshopper, and this talk is targeted at anyone interested in new workflows and increasing efficiency. We will demonstrate a series of scripts associated with foundation and rock assessment and column modeling and scheduling, and we’ll cover design and documentation tools for the geometrically complex tensile roof. In addition, we will touch on tools developed to automate view creation for documentation. This session features Revit Structure, Dynamo Studio, and Revit. AIA Approved
