PREVIEW: Case Interoperability - Floors

The CASE Grasshopper + Revit tools have continued to evolve at a rapid pace this past month.  I have been beta testing these new capabilities at academic and professional workshops with much success.  I look forward to sharing a more extensive summary of these workshop experiences in the near future...

In the meantime, here is a short demonstration of a new capability for coordinating Floors between Grasshopper and Revit.  Towers often undergo numerous changes to their form as the design evolves through concept, schematic, and design development.  As these changes occur, it can be a tedious experience to update a Revit model to reflect floor slab changes... especially with more formally expressive towers where each floor edge might be unique!

This video demonstrates our approach to a workflow that allows for information to update the Revit model as changes are reloaded in.
