Dynamite Assemblies: Creating Parametric Components Using Dynamo

Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Free, all are welcome. Please RSVP as Ideate, Inc. provides lunch!

Dynamo is an open source language that extends Building Information Modeling with the data and logic environment of a visual algorithm editor. Dynamo enables non-programmers to visually script behavior, define custom pieces of logic, and script conceptual design. We will discuss the basic concepts of Dynamo and demonstrate how the tool enables designers to create and control parametric assemblies from conceptual geometry.
