It's official! Autodesk University Las Vegas registration is open and classes are filling up! Are you going? EvolveLAB will definitely be at AU in full force this year, and we are hoping to hang out with you! Here is the low down on where we will be.
Bill Allen and John Pierson will be co-leading the Advanced Computational BIM Workshop on Monday, November 13th. If you have experience in Revit and Dynamo and want to take your Dynamo skills to the next level, this workshop is for you. Learn advanced skills to combine computational design and BIM with Dynamo visual programming. We’ll use Dynamo to create customized functions, improve building performance, and interoperate with other applications, data sources, and geometry tools in sophisticated ways. Some familiarity with Dynamo basics like list manipulation, geometry creation, and Revit interaction is required.
Just getting started with computational BIM? You may prefer the Computational BIM Workshop—Beginner to learn the basics.
Bill Allen will be leading a session called "FormIt to Project Fractal: The Future of Making Things Is Here."
Generative design is here. Harness the power of option engineering with Dynamo Studio software and Project Fractal. Create thousands of options in seconds. Scroll through your options, and optimize your design per the constraints that you control in Project Fractal. Once a design
has been finalized, take that design and push it into FormIt software for further refinement, or into Revit software for documentation and data harvesting. We’ll demonstrate the entire process, showing you step by step how to accomplish these tasks and more. You don't want to miss this demonstration as we discuss the future (present) of making things.
John Pierson will be leading a session called "Flexible Families: Learn to Make Your Families Stretch and Flex Like Never Before".
Have you ever created a parametric Revit family and wanted to have more control of the shape handles? Have you wanted to see the grip handles in 3D, control their visibility, or even control where they’re located within the family? Are you tired of seeing what seems like hundreds of reference planes? This hands-on lab will teach you built-in Revit methods that let your Revit families flex like never before. Multiple, positionable 3D grip handles for sliding doors, grip handles that are formula drivers, and grip handles with visibility are just a couple of the examples we’ll cover in this lab. So let’s have some fun by giving the infamous reference plane a little bit of a break, and get our hands dirty with awesome stretch methods that have been hiding in the Revit Family Editor all along!
John will also be getting his hands dirty as a lab assistant in multiple other classes including... Fun With FormIt Pro Winning in Revit with Dynamo Player Dynamo For Structure Dynamo DesignScript for MEP
