Information

We all love Dynamo. It introduces visual programming to our daily workflows and makes task automation accessible to nondevelopers. It's great for prototyping and testing. However, Revit macros and extensions and Forge APIs offer many automation opportunities that cannot be technically exposed through Dynamo. This class aims to help Revit and Dynamo users think outside the box by introducing real-case customer success scenarios in which these advanced and powerful Forge and Revit features have been implemented—proving that you can "Make Anything" with Forge and Revit when you explore both solutions deeply enough.
