Synopsis:

The course is designed to introduce the phenomenon of parametric design, which is becoming very widespread in today's world. It is the connection of 3D models and BIM models with visual programming. Instead of writing code in a classical programming language, Nodes are connected, and the resulting script can be created visually and without knowledge of the programming language. These scripts can be used primarily for:

- creating parametric geometry,

- working with data in a BIM model,

- structural and physical analysis, design optimization.

Thematically, the course covers two main areas of parametric modeling, replicating two software platforms:

Revit + Dynamo (JaVe)

Rhino + Grasshopper (ZdMa)

Requirements:

Previous experience with Revit recommended for Dynamo.

No requirements for Grasshopper.

Syllabus of lectures:

General introduction

Dynamo 1 - Introduction to Dynamo

Grasshopper 1 - Introduction to Grasshopper

Dynamo 2 - Working with BIM models

Grasshopper 2 - Building Physical Analysis

Syllabus of tutorials:

Dynamo 1 - creating basic geometry in Dynamo, points, circles, line segments, surfaces, logical operators, etc.

Dynamo 1 - different types of selecting objects from Revit and working with them

Dynamo 1 - creating parametric geometric objects

Grasshopper 1 - creating basic geometry in circles, line segments, areas, logical operators, etc.

Grasshopper 1 - creating more complex geometry

Grasshopper 1 - creating a parametric geometric object

Dynamo 2 - creating and working with lists, importing/exporting data, reading and overwriting parameters

Dynamo 2 - automation of routine tasks in Revit

Grasshopper 2 - introduction to building physics tools

Grasshopper 2 - thermal engineering analysis

Grasshopper 2- thermal engineering optimization of building detail

Study Objective:

Understand the principles of parametric design on two commonly used platforms.
