Kyle Martin is the leader of Boston’s Dynamo-litia, and a part of the leadership for the BeyondAEC Hackathon and the Design Tech Throwdown, in addition to being a faculty member at Boston Architectural College.

BIMpasse: Dynamo as the means for design actualization within Revit

Questions are commonly raised about Dynamo approaches for establishing design geometry as the basis for Revit documentation. This presentation will challenge the traditional understanding of digital design modeling and propose a requisite shift of strategy to produce better results. Various methods for instantiating Revit geometry will be provided, including advantages and disadvantages of each. A particular emphasis will be placed on how early stage considerations for parametric modeling help pave the way for improved software interoperability, and ultimately facilitate a more simultaneous and seamless design and delivery process.”
