In the structural engineering industry, one of the challenges is to reduce manual and tedious design tasks. Computational design tools such as Dynamo give structural designers, engineers, and detailers the possibility to automate the creation of their deliverables to build structures with minimal energy. That way, they spend less time on the repetitive tasks and more energy on the important parts of the design. In this class, you’ll learn how Dynamo can support design automation and computational modeling workflows for structural analysis and design of concrete and steel structures. You’ll learn about the appropriate packages to perform automation in your own daily workflows, and you’ll receive a set of teaching examples.
