Information

When beginning a project in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry, we're no longer simply met with the question of how to best use Revit software. The new goal is to take advantage of the myriad computational tools and processes available to the design team throughout the life of the project. In this session, we’ll review how to set out computational targets and tasks for a project at each stage of design. We will discuss how to engage management in goal setting through the use of a visual planning medium, enabling quality-assurance feedback as scripts are run. We’ll tackle prerequisites to running Dynamo scripts, as well as topics including ensuring the proper families are loaded into your models and ensuring the script is up to date. At the end of the session, you'll understand more about setting appropriate computational goals for a project that your team can actually achieve.
