Learn how to apply basic visual programming concepts to build scripts to automate the repetitive tasks involved in setting up new projects in Revit.
- [Instructor] Hi there. My name is Ian Seigel, and I'm looking forward to introducing you to working in Dynamo for Revit. If you've watched the Dynamo Essential Training course, you're already familiar with a few basic visual programming concepts. In this course we'll apply those concepts to a specific workflow that BIM managers all over the world do every single day, preparing Autodesk Revit files for new architectural, engineering, and construction projects. Each chapter of the course will take you start to finish through a different project set up routine to automate, including placing and naming building levels, generating floor and ceiling plans, creating overall building elevations, and laying out the entire set of sheets for the project.
Because every project is different, the script we develop will start by reading a single Excel file that will fill out with all the information that Revit needs to perform these tasks according to the project's requirements and your company's standards. By the time we're finished, you'll have seen each step of the process of developing a fairly complex Dynamo workflow that can help you perform your BIM management work more efficiently, accurately, and automatically. So, without further ado, let's get you started programming your own Revit startup solution with Dynamo.
