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. Continue reading Drowning in a sea of good…
Recently, I gave a talk at the SF Dynamo User Group on how to translate Rhino geometry into native Revit geometry and essentially how to “bake” native Revit geometry out of Dynamo (link to the recording – will be up soon). … Continue reading Revit… What is it good for?
For almost as long as Rhino and Revit have been around we have been trying to get trying to import Rhino geometry into Revit (Revit to Rhino was not really the problem as you can just export a DWG with … Continue reading Rhino to Revit (SAT to Spring Nodes)
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
I remember when this project was an academic project. It’s quote exciting to see it finally get some traction and get some serious investment. It will be exciting to see how it moves forward. LINK… Continue reading Robotic Construction/Fabrication got one step closer to becoming a reality…
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….
