SFDUG April 2017 Meeting

On Wednesday, April 12th at 6:00pm SFDUG welcomes Konrad K. Sobon from Grimshaw Architects to present Mandrill, a data visualization plug-in for Dynamo.


Educational Module: Expedite Design Documentation with Dynamo
Presenter: Sam Tahmasebi from Gensler






Feature Presentation: Data Visualization in Dynamo with Mandrill
Speaker: Konrad K. Sobon

In this session Konrad will present Mandrill which is a data visualization plug-in for Dynamo and Grasshopper. It uses the power of D3.js to create beautiful and interactive charts. Whether you are trying to visualize your data on the fly using your favorite visual programming software, or analyzing a health of the Revit model, Mandrill has got you covered. You can easily create live, responsive data visualizations or combine them into report pages and save out to PDF to include in larger documents. All graphics produced by Mandrill are SVG based which means you can later edit them in your software of choice. 

Speaker's Bio:

Konrad K. Sobon is a Computational BIM Specialist for Grimshaw Architects, New York. He is also a member of Design Technology group at Grimshaw that developed a number of collaboration and design tools for architects. He specializes in Computation Design implementation on BIM projects and is an author of a number of project enhancing applications and workflows. He is the creator or co-creator of Mantis ShrimpBumblebeeMandrill anUnify plug-ins for Dynamo, Rhino and Unity as well as the keeper of www.archi-lab.net – an online resource for technology curious architects.

SFDUG March 2017 Meeting

On Wednesday, March 15th at 6:00pm SFDUG welcomes Brett Young and Ben Bushman, from Building SP to discuss Dynamo applications for the MEP industry.

Building SP is an Emeryville-based software development firm at the forefront of several emerging trends in our industry- generative design, computational BIM and visual scripting using Dynamo. In this presentation, Building SP will demonstrate how both native and C#-enabled Dynamo can be used for clash-free MEP autorouting, generative design for MEP, and the automated modeling of equipment infrastructure based on Revit equipment families. The presentation will focus on actual production workflows that are revolutionized with the combination of Revit, Dynamo and software development.




Feature Presentation: Dynamo for MEP Systems | Advanced Techniques forComplex Jobs
Speaker: Brett Young and Ben Bushman


Speaker's Bio:

Brett Young is the CEO and founder of Building SP Inc. This is the second startup for Brett, having previously founded and managed Modulus Consulting, a BIM consulting firm with multi-million dollar annual revenues. He has a background in the management of large, commercial construction projects from nine years of work at Cahill Contractors, a San Francisco building general contractor. Brett holds a BS in civil and environmental engineering from UC Berkeley.

Ben Buschmann manages the acquisition of knowledge for electrical systems at Building SP. This includes the codification of rules in semantic ontologies for an expanding set of building infrastructure systems. Ben is also involved in the testing of all build releases using his detailed knowledge of electrical detailing and drafting. Prior to BSP he worked as an Electrical Design Engineer for Integral Group, a MEP design firm. He holds a BSE from Ohio State University in electrical and computer engineering.

SFDUG February 2017 Meeting

On Wednesday, February 15th at 6:00pm SFDUG welcomes Tobias Hathorn from Autodesk presenting FormIT 360 and Be Han from Because We Can to present use of Dynamo and C# for Design

Educational Module: FormIT 360 + Dynamo

Presenter: Tobias Hathorn from Autodesk

Tobias Hathorn will discuss how Autodesk FormIT 360 and Autodesk Dynamo Studio work together to create a Generative Conceptual Design workflow. He will demonstrate how to publish flexible Dynamo customizers which are created in Dynamo, create Dynamo customizers in a FormIT 360 sketch, and the integration of FormIT with Revit.
Tobias is a licensed architect and user experience designer for Autodesk FromIT, a BIM conceptual  tool. he has honed his knowledge and experience with Revit, especially the graphics and rendering features, over the past seven years in the quality assurance and user experience groups. Tobias holds a bachelor's degree in architecture from Kansas State University.






Feature Presentation: Using Dynamo and C# for Design
Speaker: Be Han from Because We Can

Be Han will provide us with an introductory discussion of when to use C# versus custom nodes and Python, as well as basic information on Microsoft Visual Studio, with the goal to understand how it can be used as a design tool. 


Speaker's Bio:

Be Han has workded at Because We Can for three years helping out with installation projects using custom Dynamo nodes to aid in rationalizations of mesh based designs and helped consult with mesh realted geometry manipulation and rationalization. She has a background in architecture and mathematics, and started by learning processing and Java alongside Rhinoscript and Grasshopper.
