SFDUG November 2015 Meeting: Dynamo for Architectural & Structural Projects

On Wednesday, November 11th at Noon, SFDUG welcomes Håvard Vasshaug as our featured virtual speaker. Håvard will present a chronological recap of his projects using Dynamo, starting with the first Random node and finishing with his recent works on reinforcement of complex geometries in subterranean hydroelectric concrete structures and a double curved facade in Paris.

Håvard serves as Design Technologist for Snøhetta in Oslo, Norway. He regularly speaks about technical workflows, digital innovation and human development at multiple international conferences and seminars, and receives wide acclaim for his talks and classes. He writes about BIM and visual scripting solutions on his website. Håvard uses Dynamo to solve modeling and data related design problems on several architectural and structural projects over the past two years.

Colin McCrone and Adam Sheather delivered a superb presentation on using Dynamo to manage Navisworks data.  Check out the full recording below:



This presentation is an overview of DynaWorks, a custom Dynamo package for Navisworks developed by Adam Sheather. The first part of the session will cover opening/closing files, appending, automated tests and publishing. The second part will cover how to retrieve data from Navisworks clash data and utilize that back in Revit in a number of ways, including placing families and updating clashing objects with clash data.

Speakers:

Colin McCrone serves as technical evangelist for the Dynamo product development team. He has emerged as a foremost lecturer and instructor for Autodesk.  As a computational designer and design software evangelist, he teaches and gathers requirements for digital design tools, manages customer interactions, and technical consulting services.

Adam Sheather serves as BIM Manager for YTL Corporation Bhd in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia,  providing roadmaps, ICT rollout and project management, support and development across the company’s subsidiary business Group. He has played instrumental role in reusable lifecycle data planning for Project Planning & Execution, Co-ordination & 4D planning, onsite technologies and FM deliverables using BIM Project datasets.
