SFDUG February 2016 Meeting: What Revit Wants: Getting Dynamo Geometry into Revit

On Wednesday, February 10th at 6:00pm, SFDUG welcomes two speakers from Perkins + Will who will show us truly what Revit want...

Educational Module: Image to Perforation Pattern to Revit Family
Speaker: Luc Deckinga, Perkins + Will
In this demonstration, you will learn how to create a Revit shading fin family with perforations based on a source image using Dynamo.
Featured Presentation: What Revit Wants: Getting Dynamo Geometry Into Revit
Speaker: Jeremy Lueber, Perkins + Will
Dynamo is quickly making it possible to do things in Revit that have only been a dream up to this point, but with the ImportInstance.ByGeometry node as the primary means of getting content into Revit and Adaptive components constrained by the limitations of Revit modeling capabilities, we need something better if we are truely be able to utilize Dynamo to create complex geometric forms in Revit. We explore some of the option to do just this...
Speakers Bios:
Luc Deckinga works as Design Application Manager and Computational Designer at Perkins + Will where he facilitates computational tools that weave data and parametric systems into architectural design. His responsibilities include BIM planning, implementation and management as well as developing and delivering software training to the technical staff.
Jeremy Luebker is a computational design specialist for Perkins + Will. He is currently working on and international transit project for which he is using Dynamo to create and document the free-form and complex structural elements in Revit. His expertise includes prototyping techniques, 3d printing and digital fabrication.

SFDUG January 2016 Meeting: Dynamo lab at CCA

On Wednesday, January 13th at 6:00pm, SFDUG will kick off the New Year with an overview of Autodesk University Dynamo classes along with a feature presentation from three California College of the Arts students. 




Educational Module: Dynamo at AU 2015
Speakers: Courtney Howard, CannonDesign and Cesar Escalante, HOK

Autodesk University featured a sold-out Computation Design Workshop and a record 20+ Dynamo related classes. Courtney and Cesar will discuss what they learned and provide insight to the most relevant Dynamo features.

Featured Presentation: Dynamo Lab at CCA - Top student projects
Speakers: Denita Irsjad, Trenton Jewett, and Anh Vo

California College of the Arts students will present their final project from the Fall 2015 Building Technology elective course. The course, like others taught recently at Georgia Tech and MIT, was modeled as an introduction to both BIM and design computation using Revit and Dynamo. The students' project proposes a new educational pavilion for CCA. They will present their results and their process, which involved Dynamo and some of its extensions as a means to build aspects of their Revit project.
