CONCEPTUAL MASS | BIMCHILE. Since Revit 2010, there are “conceptual mass categories”. These are basically external families .rfa optimized to enable the creation of shapes on a more free way than those inside the RVT enviroment (naturally is the idea to insert them after in the RVT file). The concept of create virtually any element with parametric features is pretty amazing, where you can create for example trusses, stereometrics among other shapes. Desde revit 2010 existen las familias de “masa conceptual”. Estas son básicamente familias externas .rfa optimizadas para permitir la creación de formas mucho mas libres que las del entorno de archivo RVT (naturalmente la idea es luego insertarlas dentro del archivo).

SteelBuilt Curtainwall Infinity™ System-45 mm RP 0.8125 in Model Number - Curtainwall_Steelbuilt_Inifinity_45mm_RP_0.8125in_TGP SteelBuilt Curtainwall Infinity™ System Now you can design what you envision, as limits are a thing of the past. The SteelBuilt Curtainwall Infinity™ System can use as a back mullion almost any type of structural member, from stainless steel to glulam beams. This allows architects and designers to use larger areas of glass, smaller frame profiles and greater free spans than are possible with traditional aluminum curtain wall. This flexibility in design and material allows curtain walls to be incorporated into a nearly limitless range of building types, designs, and performance requirements.

Terms and Conditions Accept Cancel. August 2012. I'm back on curtain walls again. Sometimes you need to start walking away from an idea to get fresh inspiration. What about a curtain panel family with 16 equally spaced holes ? I used the face-based generic model family template and made a void extrusion with a radius parameter. Nest this into a curtain panel family and link the radius to a matching parameter in the curtain panel, Now we will be able to control the hole sizes from Excel. It has to be an instance parameter, and I also made mine a shared parameter so it can appear in schedules.

For my first 2 experiments I am going to use the random function. If I had been a bit more careful, I could have put the value "40" into a fixed reference cell also. It's easy to make a schedule that displays the hole size and number of instances for each panel "type" (They are not types in the Revit sense of the word) You can also use a schedule to select a group of panels, right click and "show". That's enough randomising. Now export to excel. Learn | Dynamo BIM. Unit1: Introduction In this lesson we will introduce the building mass for the course, demonstrate its parametric flexibility, and explain the geometric applications of its parameters.

Run Automatically will be checked so the user can visualize a range of building mass options. Unit 1: Editing Multiple Parameters In this lesson we will edit multiple parameters for the building mass in dynamo. Unit 1: Editing with Formulas In this lesson we will set several parameters for our building mass in Dynamo. Unit 2: Structural Framing - Part 1 In this lesson we will introduce Dynamo’s basic tools for adding Structural Framing Elements to a Revit document. Unit 2: Structural Framing - Part 2 In this lesson we will introduce Dynamo’s basic tools for adding Structural Framing Elements to a Revit document.

Arch 653 – Project 2 | Mahmoud Gadelhak. Parametric Modeling using Dynamo and Revit Introduction: The aim of this project is to develop a method to control the color and shading angle of the 600+ curtain panels in the building modeled previously in Project 1. Changing the parameters of every curtain panel is a very time consuming process, which can be simplified with the use of Dynamo and Scripting. 1- Random Color Pattern: The building has more than six hundred shading device that have different colors in a random way. Achieving such a result in Revit requires changing the material of the shading devices one by one. The Aim of the first function is automate this process. Seven different materials were created and distributed among the shading devices in a random way. Microsoft Excel was used to create a random list with the indices of the material and then the list was imported into dynamo. 2- Controlling the shading devices using Sun Position Like this:

Chameleon. Adaptive Components, GH to Revit. A fluid connection between Grasshopper and Revit seems to be within reach, and several computational designers in the parametric modeling community have offered powerful plugins to streamline this workflow. This post focuses on the pros and cons of using adaptive components to import Grasshopper geometry into Revit. Chameleon appeared a few months ago and has proven to be an effective tool for adaptive components. The interface is intuitive on both the GH and Revit sides and we are yet to find any serious bugs with it. Another recent plugin is named Hummingbird (keep track of all these animals), a similar program which accesses the WhiteFeet Modeler to import adaptive components as well as Revit primitives (this has a lot of potential and will be discussed more in a future post).

Take your pick, these are both great plugins. The test case we are using is a preliminary curtain wall design for a project in our office. The wall’s complexity is defined by its grid and panel edges. Lyrebird. This is the first release of our plug-in to instantiate Revit families using data from Grasshopper. Lyrebird for Grasshopper will create one component, LBOut for sending information from Grasshopper to Revit.

Within Revit, the Lyrebird plugin will create a split button with four commands: a toggle to turn the receiver on/off, a settings dialog, a command to select all elements in a particular set, and a command to strip the Lyrebird data from selected element(s). We have tested this project, but it is the first release and it may still contain bugs. Please use it "as is", it does not come with warranties. I spent a lot of time developing the logic and implementing it, please give credit where credit is due. To install: Download the Lyrebird.msi file from below and run it to install Lyrebird for the local user.

In Grasshopper, choose File > Special Folders > Components folder. For Revit, copy the two DLL files and one ADDIN file to %programdata%\Autodesk\Revit\Addins\2014. Optimization with Galapagos | Responsive Skins. It’s been several years now since the Galapagos component was included in Grasshopper for Rhino. Back in 2011 Charles Aweida wrote a blog post that included a proof of concept in which he used this tool to optimize a simple multi-sided form to receive the lowest amount of heat energy from the sun. Since then, we’ve been trying to create optimization tools at the building scale that can inform our decision making process during design. The videos below are optimizations for heat gain and views on a site in Boston, MA. We are actively looking for ways to expand this list to include a wider range of project / site specific design drivers such as daylighting, structure, and wind.

WHAT IS GALAPAGOS? These are 5 numerical values within a given range that Galapagos can try in various combinations. What makes Galapagos special is that it does not try every single possible combination of these options in order to arrive at the optimum solution. Like this: Like Loading... Using Dispatch to Create Random Variation – Example 1.5 | Generative Landscapes. The previous examples were a little abstract when it comes to direct application to a Landscape Architecture project, but this one is a very concrete example of how a simple script in Grasshopper can make a routine design task much quicker. A common task of an intern Landscape Architect at a first job might be to design a paving pattern. Lets say an evil boss comes to you and knows he wants a random mixture of light and dark pavers on a project, but is not sure if he wants 15% dark, 50% dark, or 90% dark. He assigns you the task to show him the variations.

If you don’t know grasshopper, you might do this by randomly filling in cells with a paint bucket in grasshopper, but then it might not be truly random, the proportions might be off, and might take quite a long time and be incredibly boring. A simple 5 minute solution is to do this task in Grasshopper. You can also give your boss variations for 30%, 35%, 80% dark… and so forth. But first, to setup the task. Step Three - Dispatch. BIM Project Suite - CAD Technology Center. Bi-Directional Spreadsheet Linking Spreadsheet Link exports data from Revit elements to a spreadsheet where the data can be edited and then imported and applied back in to the Revit model.

The Pain Point While Revit is great for drawing buildings and retaining information, it’s not so great at manipulating large amounts of data. Key Features Adding Categories & Parameters: The settings dialog is used to configure the category, parameters and filters that dictate which Revit elements should be included in the spreadsheet for editing. Calculated Values: Modify information with the use of formulas in the spreadsheet export environment.

Working with Multiple Categories: Adding additional categories will cause corresponding tabs to be built in the spreadsheet window in real-time. Type Parameters in the Spreadsheet Window: Export and edit both instance and type information together in the same spreadsheet.
