Dynamo and Design Computation at Autodesk University



I know many of you have already started the party in Vegas, but here’s a little roundup of what’s happening with Dynamo and Design Computation this week at AU.  I’m afraid most of these events are booked up, but the very nice AU organizers sometimes let more folks into the room if you’re ok with standing.  (That’s the only way I ever got into Fuzzy Math, among others).  If you can’t attend these specific talks and want to talk about any of these topics, please feel free to ping me and we can try and set something up during the week.  

We're also going to be bashing away at codes, nodes, and models at Case's Hackathon on Tuesday night. Hope to see you there!

Computational BIM Workshop
Monday, Dec 2, 7:30 AM - 6:30 PM
Learn to combine computational design and BIM with Dynamo visual programming and DesignScript. Use computational design to drive an Autodesk® Revit®-based software model. No programming experience necessary.
Ian Keough, Luke Church, Patrick Tierney, Matt Jezyk

Tuesday, Dec 3, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
– Delfino 4004
Project Dynamo is an experimental "wire diagram"-style scripting environment for Autodesk® Revit®-based software and Autodesk® Vasari software. Autodesk 123D Make software takes 3D models and decomposes them into easy-to-fabricate forms. Combine them together, and you've got a powerful solution for conceptual architectural design, form finding, and fast digital fabrication. In this class we present these new free tools, teach the basics on how to work with them, and show just how quickly they can generate, rationalize, and fabricate form.
60 Minutes Lecture
Jeffrey Mcgrew, Because We Can

Wednesday, Dec 4, 8:00 AM - 11:30 AM
– Lido 3103
This year’s theme is “Computational BIM” and will explore how advanced firms are bridging the gap between Computational Design and Building Information Modeling. We have seen the development of different specializations inside firms and would like to explore the bridges and points of interconnection between the two. There are three areas of interest under this theme:
• Incorporating performance-based design, simulation and analysis.
• Digital fabrication and other modifications to streamline the construction process.
• Lastly, leveraging sensor data both for post-occupancy study and as an input into the design process.

AB2551 - Enhanced Parametric Design with Dynamo Visual Programming for Autodesk® Revit® and Autodesk® Vasari™.
Thursday, Dec 5, 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM
– Marcello 4404
This lecture introduces participants to the fundamentals of visual programming within the Autodesk Vasari and Autodesk Revit conceptual design environment. Custom code gives users the ability to efficiently automate many design tasks while also enabling new generative design capabilities. This lecture shows how to compose useful scripts using Dynamo Visual Programming for Autodesk Revit and Autodesk Vasari software. The lecture provides users with resources and step-by-step examples for automating geometry creation, adjusting family parameters using external data, and sharing information with different design platforms.

AB3362-L - Enhanced Parametric Design with Dynamo Visual Programming for Autodesk® Revit® and Autodesk® Vasari™
Thursday Dec 5, 2:30 PM
- Marcello 4505
This Hands-on Lab introduces participants to the fundamentals of visual programming within the Autodesk Vasari and Autodesk Revit conceptual design environment. Custom code gives users the ability to efficiently automate many design tasks while also enabling new generative design capabilities.  Users will try out resources and step-by-step examples for automating geometry creation, adjusting family parameters using external data, and sharing information with different design platforms.
