This class will cover some practical uses of computational BIM (Building Information Modeling) to improve the quality and efficiency of various tedious tasks in plumbing design. You will learn efficient ways to set up your model and families, streamlining your modeling, coordination, and collaboration tasks. We will also walk through computational BIM workflows combining Dynamo and Microsoft Excel to automate design, sizing, and calculations in sanitary, vent, and storm systems. Finally, we will explore ways to integrate region-specific plumbing code requirements into your workflows.
