Proudly we are announcing this year BILT Academy keynote talk will be held by Jose Ariza. He is going to talk about: How to win the race of digital transformation in the AEC industry (Spanish: Como ganar la Carrera de la transformación digital en el sector AEC).
Jose Ariza is a Mechanical Engineer with more than 10 years of experience in the AEC industry working on multidisciplinary projects. He works as EMEA Technical Specialist at Autodesk focusing on cloud collaboration and digital transformation for different industry segments in EMEA helping multidiscipline customers to achieve their business goals using Autodesk Technology.
We have been working on a large-scale Project so far, and I would like to share with you and highlight a very important tool we can use in our workflows to make our work much more clear, fast and consistent:
“Using Schedules with Dynamo”
Especially in large scale projects like multi-purpose buildings, airports, etc, it’s inevitable that there will be lots of model mistakes and corrections, area tags missing, unplaced areas and lots of unestimated things. We shouldn’t forget the fact that, in Revit, everything is processed with data. So every component includes some information. Let’s do a quick example and see how schedules and Dynamo can make our work much faster than the normal way:
Let’s create a Schedule that shows our rooms and their information:
As we can see in the schedules, there are some rooms which are unplaced. Let’s imagine that we are designing and modelling a complex and there are hundreds of rooms in the Project. Would fixing this problem one by one be a reasonable way?
Let’s see the Dynamo script:
As we can see, we get all the rooms and filter them very easily. After that, we delete all the unplaced rooms automatically. Let’s go one step ahead.
In lighting analysis with Insight, let’s say that we want to exclude rooms like toilets, corridors, storages etc. Let’s go to Schedule which is automatically created by Revit when using Insight:
In large-scale projects, there will be lots of rooms like this. Let’s dive into Dynamo to automate this process again:
After running Dynamo, we can see the updates in our Schedule:
All in all, the main idea is, we can see schedules where every dirty laundry is exposed, after all, cleaned and folded by Dynamo 🙂
