In the BIM world, Revit is the unquestioned king of modeling, but it can also be a time-consuming and difficult tool to work with. Parametric control of design criteria and automation of repetitive tasks, like construction document creation within Revit, are problematic at best. That’s where Dynamo comes in. Dynamo is a user-friendly, visual programming interface that allows you to build native intelligence into your design parameters. It also allows you to streamline repetitive operations, and project completion while increasing overall design efficiency. You don’t need to be a programmer to use Dynamo for Revit. You just need someone to show you the basic concepts and building blocks of its easy-to-use visual interface, and you’ll be setting intelligent controls onto all your Revit parts and families in no time! This class is focused on the Beginner level user – those who have never used Dynamo before but can see the immense potential of automating their design project processes.
This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions, and address questions as the class progresses.
Note: Instructor will present using Autodesk Revit 2021. Students who wish to follow along with instructor are encouraged to use the same version.
Recording: Registrants for this course will receive access to a recording of each session for 48 consecutive hours. Access will start the next business day after the session ends.
