INTRODUCING THE DESIGNTECH DYNAWARDS

I am pleased to announce designtech.io became a year old this week! To say it has been an exciting journey over the past year would be an understatement. At designtech we understand the importance of continued learning and knowledge sharing being a fundamental part of progressing as a collective industry.

As we all know, the Dynamo Community is great and there are many people that have contributed to help develop this tool to what it is now. The speed at which Dynamo has developed can be attributed greatly to the introduction of the package manager, which allows users to create custom nodes and libraries and then upload them for the community to download and use.

WRANGLE THAT DATA: DYNAMO FILTRATION AND SORTING

List Management is key to leveraging power in Dynamo. This blog post will explore a series of options to Filter and Sort using out-of-the-box nodes, designscript and python workflows.

This list is not exhaustive, nor does it cover the myriad of different Collectors and Custom Filtration Nodes present within other packages, but it does provide some insight into how filtration and sorting can be approached.

DIGITAL OFFICE

We shifted offices just before Christmas from London Moorgate to London Kings Cross: Demobilisation took 15 minutes, we hailed an uber on the company account for a short ride and had remobilised within 15 minutes – computers on, fingers thumping the keyboard. We managed to be up and running in another location over the course of our lunch break. One desktop, a couple of laptops, additional screens, cables and our personal gear. That’s it. No paper, no junk, no mess.

GENERATIVE DESIGN

In architecture and design we can use Generative Design to leverage the power of computing in order to find a desirable outcome. Opposed to iterative design which generates further solutions based on data acquired in the previous, generative design explores numerous solutions that have been defined within a set of constraints simultaneously. These constraints demarcate both the minimum and maximums of each input variable we have chosen.

SPOT COORDINATES WORKFLOW

Before I go on I just want to give a shout out to Mostafa El Ayoubi and his fantastic Dynamo Package ‘Data-Shapes’. We will come back to this a little later on.
A client of ours recently wanted the ability to schedule all the Spot Coordinates in Revit for purposes of setting out. As it stands in Revit there is no way to schedule Dimensions, and Spot Coordinates fall into this category. However, we can use a mixture of both Dynamo and Revit family creation in order to facilitate this requirement.

CREATE INTERIOR ELEVATIONS

During the latter stages of a project, architects may be required to produce interior elevations of particular spaces/rooms in a building. These can be key to show furniture layouts or in some instances small power and data positions.

Revit allows the user to create interior elevations by placing the elevation marker within the internal space of rooms. By doing so, it automatically constrains the view to the begin at the finished floor elevation and stop at the ceiling. […]
