    Buildz: Sign up for AU 2011 Classes

    I’m co-teaching 2 classes this year, a Lab with Robert Manna from Stantec (recently Burt Hill) and a Lecture with William Lopez Campo from HOK.  Registration is open . . . what are you waiting for!
    AB4391-L Twice Baked: Creating Your Own Adaptive Components and Panels with Autodesk® Revit®

    Class Audience

    Designers, modelers, and staff who work with Revit and Revit users who are familiar with adaptive components who want to achieve a higher level of mastery
    Class Description

    This hands-on lab builds on the topics covered in last year's "Au Bon Panel: Baking Your Own Adaptive Components and Panels with Autodesk Revit Architecture." Revit 2012 has introduced the ability to place adaptive components directly into projects, which opens up even more possibilities of what you can do with this powerful family modeling tool. We will address more complex topics, including using hosted points and shape handles, and will provide tips on how to make use of nested components. Our examples will include both the practical and perhaps not-so-practical, including how to use Adaptive Components as “design aids” (“computational” design on the fly). You will learn how to build “stuff” that behaves how you want it to and not how Revit thinks it should. So, come prepared, review the classes from 2010, and get ready for a whirlwind lab!
    Key Learning

    • Understand the concept of “computational design on the fly"
    • Control the orientation and alignment of components
    • Understand how to use adaptive components and panels to create well-quantified designs, not just sculptural elements
    • Use nesting families to create complex adaptive components and panels

     
    AB4700 You Want to Model a WHAT? Converting Real Projects into Parametric Relationships

    Class Audience

    Advanced users of Revit or users of other parametric design software who want to understand the same concepts in Revit; designers who want to create ideas that will drive BIM models; BIM support people who need to make designers' ideas buildable
    Class Description

    Designers are constantly faced with two related challenges: how to rationalize a form into buildable elements, and how to create geometric frameworks to represent design requirements. These problems are two sides of the same coin. In this class, attendees will see examples of how Autodesk® Revit® conceptual design tools have been used to transform ideas into reality by either “pre-rationalizing” a design based on requirements or “post-rationalizing” an existing design into manageable elements. Speakers will draw upon real-world examples and recognizable precedents. Case studies will demonstrate how very complex buildings can be addressed quickly and with standard architectural tools.
    Key Learning

    • Recognize connections between computational ideas and architectural projects
    • Apply parametric design strategies to real projects
    • Rationalize a building form into a parametric framework
    • Create a parametric framework based on requirements
