Drowning in a sea of good…

I’ve been extremely blessed in the past year—beyond belief. And I’m excited to see what’s to come…It seems so long since I’ve posted anything for all of you. So I thought I’d write a little summary of what has been happening for me in the last year-and-a-half and hopefully get all of you caught up and hopefully set the stage for future posts.

Needing to “Manually” Edit Revit Families Created in Dynamo

I have recently have been asked if it was possible to manual edit a parametric family created using dynamo. In my experience, there are two reasons you would want to be able to edit the families manually in Revit once they are created: Your design team / project management does not completely trust or understand parametric design. they want the safety net of being able to go back to what they know: they want the option for someone at any point to be able to interact with family “manually”. The other reason is that you want to be able to … Continue reading Needing to “Manually” Edit Revit Families Created in Dynamo

Is Architecture in danger from automated design?. . . . Not likely, see why….

This is a great article about why architects really don’t need to worry about AI ever (or at least in the perceivable future) replacing the human decision making process. It is just another confirmation of the little phrase (I forget who said it) ” automate when possible”. Basically it boils down to computers are good a crunching large amounts of data (which, honestly, we humans don’t do so well at) and human excel at spontaneous, intuitive and sometimes, illogical decision making (something computers will likely never be able to accomplish, even if we can make them mimic us). But don’t … Continue reading Is Architecture in danger from automated design?. . . . Not likely, see why….

DesnFab Sensorium Project Featured on Monograph…

I recently met Moe, author of the Monograph blog, at the kickoff meetup for the SF Digital Fabrication Group earlier this year. I had recently become an admin of the group and was giving a little show-and-tell presentation of some of my previous work. Moe must have liked what he saw because he tweeted me shortly after asking if he could feature my old Sensorium project from CCA on the Monograph. The rest is history. I would like to thank Moe for such a wonderful summary of the project. Keep up the good work Moe. Continue reading DesnFab Sensorium Project Featured on Monograph…

Desktop printer and 3D scanner all in one?… cool!

Someone recently shared the link to this press release about a new desktop fdm 3d printer that uses a rotary table and has a 3d scanner incorporated into it. The best part is that because it already has the scanner in it, it can check its own quality as it prints… COOL! Continue reading Desktop printer and 3D scanner all in one?… cool!
