SFDUG March 2016 Meeting: Dynamo a BIM Consultant’s Perspective

On Wednesday, March 9th at 6:00pm, SFDUG welcomes Edwin Guerra from Summit BIM Consulting in Vancouver, BC. We will also kick off the meeting with a hands-on session – bring your laptops!

This month’s meeting is brought to you by the node“List.FilterByBoolMask”

We are starting a new series: each meeting will end with an in-depth look at one particularly useful node. First up is filtering, with examples and use cases that will make this little guy a prominent member of your Dynamo tool box.

Educational Module: Advanced Data Management in Dynamo 
Speaker: Colin McCrone, Autodesk 

How does List.Map actually work and how can you avoid using it? What does var[]..[] mean? Learn about data types and structures in Dynamo that will help you navigate the tougher problems. Learn strategies for creating default values in functions and custom nodes to make the most robust and useful tools for your work. This is going to be a hands-on session:  bring your own laptop with Dynamo 9.0 installed. 

Featured Presentation: Dynamo a BIM Consultant’s Perspective 
Speaker: Edwin GuerraSummit AEC 

Dynamo is transforming the Revit landscape by allowing users to customize and develop new workflows in a friendly visual environment. In this presentation we will survey some key developments in Dynamo as well as some practical examples illustrating new and efficient ways of working. The use of Revit as primarily a documentation tool with clash coordination and visualization abilities is quickly moving towards more advanced uses that give designers valuable feedback to evaluate and create better designs.
