DoC Event #009 – Dynamo and its Grasshopper equivalent using Rhino.Inside®.Revit

This is a joint event with DoE

Date: Wednesday, June 24th, 2020

Time: 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm MDT

Location: Online via Zoom

This will be the Third DoC event of the 2019 – 2020 season. Event #009 will feature a remote presentation about Dynamo, Grasshopper & R.I.R. from Marcello Sgambelluri of John A. Martin & Associates

Dynamo and its Grasshopper equivalent using Rhino.Inside®.Revit

Presented by Marcello Sgambelluri of John A. Martin & Associates (virtual session)

There is a new technology that is emerging in the AECO+ industry. It is called Rhino Inside Revit and it allows Revit to access all of Rhino’s powerful functionally including Grasshopper.

So, we decided to avoid turning this session into another “intro to Rhino.Inside.Revit”. Instead, let’s look at Grasshopper for Revit in a different light. This session will show all of you Dynamo for Revit users how to make equivalent functions in Grasshopper including creating Revit Beams, Revit Walls and even Moose…

Let’s find out what Grasshopper for Revit is really made of!

So if you want to have a fun time please join us and don’t forget to bring all your questions and concerns up to the presenter to keep the session lively.

#CANBIMCGY20 – Calgary Virtual Session 2020 – June 16th

If you have not signed up yet for the CanBIM Calgary Virtual Session next week, what are you waiting for!

This event is Tuesday, June 16th, 2020, 8:45 am – 4:45 pm EDT

The Future of Work
Designing Resiliency and Building Safety Post-COVID

Predicting how our world will be impacted due to COVID-19 is difficult. Obviously, this crisis has already affected the building industry from a productivity perspective and will have a permanent effect on how we consider safety for our workers. As we consider these impacts we should expect an additional level of attention in design to be paid to Infectious Disease Control beyond Hospital environments. We should, therefore, expect that architectural design and specifications, specifically the physical gateways that control our built environment, will accommodate the technology systems and processes necessary to keep Society safe. What role will infectious disease specialists play in the design process? How will the building’s IOT strategy accommodate and collect the data required to help Society perform epidemiological contact tracing? What will be the new requirements for design?  How will this impact existing buildings and future projects? What are the long term supply chain implications? We are gathering the top minds in Canada to start the discussion around this subject. Please join us!

CanBIM – Edmonton 2019 – June 12th & 13th

If you have not signed up yet for the CanBIM Regional Session in Edmonton next week, what are you waiting for!

The event takes place the week of June 12th and 13th in Edmonton, AB at the NAIT Productivity and Innovation Centre 

Transformation Towards Digital Project Delivery
Digital innovation is fast becoming the cornerstone to driving business value in many owner-design-construction (AECO) organizations. Whether digital innovation is enhancing, transforming or reinventing business models and operations, it is well established that investing in digital innovation is fundamental to success. Organizations across the real estate and construction supply chain – from owners to suppliers – are adopting digital strategies that leverage disruptive technologies such as cloud-based collaboration, IoT, automation/robotics, AR/VR, and machine learning/AI. Using these strategies lead to improved productivity, quality, and customer experiences. Edmonton is at the heart of the prairies and has a pioneering, innovative spirit. We will host technology leaders and senior management executives who are driving business value through adopting digital innovation strategies which will transform our project delivery.

The Living Model – Coming to a Western Canadian City Near You!

During the week of March 14th – 19th IMAGINiT and Autodesk will be hosting four live events in 4 Western Canadian cities, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary and Saskatoon. These events are meant to be informative, as well as a great chance to meet and network with people in both the AEC and Manufacturing industries in these cities.

I have the great pleasure to be part of the team working on the AEC side of the event, and to present on “The Living Model” (more on the Manufacturing part later).

Remember when we all called it AEC….

This is a re-post of a Blog I did for work, which is posted on the IMAGINiT Building Solutions Blog here.

If you work in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction industry then you are very familiar with the acronym “AEC” which stands for Architecture, Engineering and Construction. However those simple days of just one simple acronym seem to have passed us by. Now that we are living in a BIM world and collaboration is on everyone’s mind there have been some new acronyms going around that are trying to be more inclusive. I think the idea is that with BIM and the ability to have models be useful beyond just construction and continues being used for facilities management (or building operations) that “AEC” was not enough to get the point across anymore.
