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
