Revit Energy Analysis with Green Building Studio’s New Potential Energy Savings Chart

The Potential Energy Savings chart is a cutting edge new feature that helps design teams understand the features of a building’s design, construction, and systems that can save the most energy. It is designed to help users focus the team’s valuable efforts only on the areas that matter most for reducing energy use. Read more...
Generative Thermal Optimisation

Generative Thermal Optimisation

This is a presentation explaining the basic process of generative design and thermal optimisation for filtering using Grasshopper, Genoform and Autodesk Vasari. Would be great if this kind of generative functionality would be built into Vasari itself.
Parametric Painting in Revit

Parametric Painting in Revit

Just came across this cool preview for a Revit Technology Conference RTC2011 presentation by Tim Waldock on “Designing in Revit Using Parametric Formulas” – This example is using adaptive components and the “Reactor Pattern” principle to examine facade design.

Scriptographer Plugin for Adobe Illustrator

Whether you want to experiment with halftone frit patterns or generate organic vector shapes for CNC laser-cutting, CNC milling and 3D Printing. The options are endless. Scriptographer is a scripting plugin for Adobe Illustrator. It gives the user the possibility to extend Illustrator’s functionality by the use of the JavaScript language. The user is no...

Ecotect Mesh Data to Rhino

Ted Ngai has posted many interesting RhinoScript and Grasshopper examples on his blog atelier nGai. Especially worth mentioning are two tutorials that experiment with a generative approach using Ecotect solar simulation data to drive the creation of geometry in Rhino. In this instance solar access data was used to determine the size of skylights in...

Freeform Organic Experiments with Topmod and Revit

See how the open source software Topmod could be integrated with Revit into your schematic design toolbox on the Everything Autodesk Revit & BIM blog. TopMod3d is a free, open source, portable, platform independent topological mesh modeling system that allows users to create high genus 2-manifold (watertight) meshes. While we have seen people do similar...

Generative Mesh Modeling Software

ParaCloud released version 1.0 of GEM, a simple to use design tool for components population. The software is able to populate mesh components over design models resulting in compex 3D models (e.g. a facade or a roof structure). ParaCloud Gem works with SketchUP Pro, TopMod, Rhino3D, Cinema 4D, 3DS Max, Maya, AutoCAD or any 3D...
