BIM128342: Computational BIM Workshop—Advanced     (You can download the Dataset HERE)

Summary from AU website:

“If you have experience in Revit software and Dynamo software, and you want to take your Dynamo skills to the next level, this workshop is for you. Learn advanced skills to combine computational design and Building Information Modeling (BIM) with Dynamo visual programming. We’ll use Dynamo to create customized functions, improve building performance, and interoperate with other applications, data sources, and geometry tools in sophisticated ways. Some familiarity with Dynamo basics like list manipulation, geometry creation, and Revit interaction is required. This is a full-day class, including networking opportunities over breakfast, lunch, and drinks. This year we’re also introducing a forum at the end of the day that will feature several speakers talking about practical applications of Dynamo to both instruct and inspire. Just getting started with computational BIM? You may prefer our “Computational BIM Workshop-Beginner” to learn the basics.”
