Parametric BIM: Facade Design Using Dynamo for Autodesk Revit

The Summer is quickly closing out and the Fall season will soon be upon us!  (...and then winter is coming...)

Join me in Chicago on October 24+25 for another Facades+.  You might remember that Michael McCune and I ran a Facades+ workshop this past Spring on the subject of interoperability.  This time out, I will cover Facade Design using Dynamo for Autodesk Revit and Vasari!

About the Workshop...

Dynamo is an open source graphical programming language for Autodesk Revit and Vasari. Dynamo can be used to customize a wide variety of computational design processes within Revit’s Building Information Modeling environment. This workshop will explore how Dynamo can be used as a took for studying parametric facades. Participants will learn how to use Dynamo for generating facade geometry, deploying Revit families, utlizing analysis information, and managing complex parameters.


  • Basic knowledge of modeling in Revit and/or Vasari 

Required Software

  • Revit 2014 and/or Vasari Beta 3 
  • Dynamo
