More Dynamo for Structure

Marcello Sgambelluri SE
Director of Advanced Technology
John A. Martin Structural Engineers

Learning Objectives
• Learn why and when to use Dynamo in your structural office
• Learn how to work with structural parameters in Revit using Dynamo
• Learn how to use Dynamo to be more efficient at modeling structure in Revit and in
other structural analysis software
• Learn how to build 3D structural beams, including roof framing, using Dynamo in
Revit

Description
Very few classes focus on how Dynamo software could be used in the structural design office
from a practical level—until now. This class will build on the previous year’s top-rated class
entitled “Dynamo for Structure,” and will give more hands-on experience to the attendees and
teach them how to use more Dynamo examples to help model structural elements in Revit
software. If you model any type of Revit structural elements, then this class is for you. This class
will be exciting, and we will make modeling structure in Revit fun again! No Dynamo experience
is needed, and you do not have to have taken the previous year's course. Only Revit guru
status is required.

Speaker
Marcello Sgambelluri currently serves as the BIM Director at John A. Martin & Associates
Structural Engineers in Los Angeles. Marcello has worked on many BIM projects over the
last 20 years as a project manager, design engineer, and BIM Director. Some of the BIM
projects Marcello has worked on includes the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles -
CA, the Ray and Maria Stata Technology Center at MIT, Tom Bradley International
Terminal Expansion at LAX. Marcello is internationally recognized at one of the top BIM
leaders and contributors to the education and implementation of BIM technology in the
building industry. Marcello continually speaks at Autodesk University and the Revit
Technology Conference (BILT) where he has received the 1st place speaker award for a
record 14 times between 2012 thru 2018 between both conferences. Marcello received his
Bachelors and Master’s degrees in Civil Engineering and he is also a licensed Civil and
Structural Engineer.

Introduction
What is Dynamo?

This is a very difficult question to answer simply because Dynamo does SO


much. Below is my answer to this question and I hope it clarifies it for some of
you.
Dynamo is a free program from Autodesk that uses visual programming (or boxes and wires).
Dynamo primarily does two tasks:

1. Creates its own geometry with parametric r e l a t i o n s h i p s .


2. Reads and writes to and from external d a t a b a s e s .

Since Dynamo creates its own geometry and reads and writes to external
databases it is a perfect fit to interact with Revit because....isn’t Revit simply a
database with parametric geometry?

Dynamo reads and writes back data to and from the Revit database via the
Revit API. The data could be just about anything, parameter values, family
geometry, and family placement.

Why Dynamo?
Why not use Dynamo? You don’t need to use Dynamo all the time but consider the following
image and let that guide your decision on when to use dynamo and when not to.
