Revit “Programming Techniques”
In our previous discussion on the Revit API, we reviewed the concept of using the Revit API to craft a plugin to extend the out-of-the-box functionality within Revit. Conceptually speaking, the Revit API is a library of definitions and protocols that can be interacted with through a programming operation to create a capability within Revit. Once one understands the basic premise of creating a Revit plugin, the logical next step is to consider the methods available to undertake the actual “programming” of the plugin.
The majority of applications for the AECO (Architecture, engineering, construction, operation) industry are desktop applications (primarily MS Windows© based). These applications tend to be expensive in cost, especially so today with ‘subscription’ modes of licensing becoming more common.
Design often starts with a glimpse of the conceptual end vision. It will go through many iterations of growth and change and gradually incorporate layers of information, such as the environment, code, programs, material, structure, budget…but at the beginning, before everything is settled and tracked down to the granular details of every screw and sealant bead of a window sill, as can be done in a BIM model, designers tend to prefer tools/software with flexibility and more freedom that allows them to apply and visualize their creativity before everything is fed to detailed engineering.
We are excited to join thousands of innovators at Autodesk University 2022 in New Orleans, LA on 27-29 September. After 2 years of participating in the digital conference, it is going to feel incredible to get together with like-minded people in person!
The term API is an abbreviation for Application Programming Interface. It is a set of definitions and protocols used to develop and integrate application software, allowing communication between two software applications through a set of rules.
As a Designer in the AEC/BIM arena, you often hear about needs such as increasing automation, workflow improvement, reducing repetitive and time-consuming tasks, and preventing human error. On the technology front, much of the time Dynamo is the tool that is turned to in order to address those needs.
Voyansi and BIM Services
From early cartographers to modern videographers, there has always been a push to repackage physical reality into consumable formats. This could be a map, a photo, a land survey, or a documentary film, among many others. All are instances of turning the world we live in, into actionable information.
Let's talk about estimating costs for the construction of a work. When purchasing the necessary materials, were your calculations accurate? How much extra quantity variance did they add to their estimate? Surely once they found themselves facing a buyback situation due to changes and rework or simply they bought more because “better over and not missing”.
Way behind are the days of visualizing buildings through sets of drawings. Digital transformation is here, and with it came many new tools and possibilities for BIM experts around the globe. Today, we can visualize a building through 3D modeling and geometry, and that’s not a minor thing. This process was designed to solve numerous construction problems like reviewing mistakes on budget, redundant construction, and the decrease of facility efficiency.
3D Scan to CAD is a service that converts your 3D scans into editable, design-ready, and professional-grade CAD files. But, how does it work? Why should you scan and then move to CAD?
