SFCDUG June 2019 | Demystifying the Linear Algebra & Complex Geometric Capabilities

On June 19th, 12:00 pm PST, SFCDUG welcomes Samuel Williams Aston. This month’s meeting will be hosted at the AIA 130 Sutter St # 600, San Francisco, CA 94104.

Feature Presentation: Demystifying the Linear Algebra & Complex Geometric Capabilities of the Revit API

Unleash the full force of the Revit API by understanding and utilizing its linear algebraic & vector functions in Python. For many trained & aspiring computational designers, taking on complex challenges requiring a depth of geometric and linear algebra knowledge might seem daunting. It might also trigger a need to refresh on advanced math concepts learned years ago. This discussion explores the main geometric & linear algebraic concepts underlying much of the Revit API. We also discuss their implementation and clarify the uses of often mystifying functions.

Speaker: Sam Aston
