Dynamo and Computational BIM - Part 1: Introduction and Resources

Design is both art and science – this is especially true at this time when Building Information Modelling (BIM) is changing the AEC industry’s paradigm of how buildings are planned, analyzed, created and managed. Computational methods give designers the ability to automate many of the design tasks, generate parametric geometries and parse the design model to perform various engineering analysis. Well, as promising as it sounds, I understand it can be very challenging and probably scary for designers to write all the codes/scripts to develop the computational methods. In this blog, let’s take a look at how to develop “easy” and “graphical” scripting for computational design using Dynamo. Read more →

Driving a Request for Information (RFI) workflow through BIM 360 Field

In this blog post, we look at how to leverage Autodesk BIM 360 Field's best-in-class data collection mechanisms to identify and record issues early in the process as well as make them a part of the official RFI process by feeding them seamlessly to a Project Management system. Lot of Field users have asked the question of how to take a Field 'issue' item and create an RFI from the same. Let us take a look... Read more →
