learn about what the release of Dynamo 2.1, along with Revit & Civil 3D 2020, FormIt Pro V17, and the new standalone Dynamo Sandbox means for your Dynamo graphs and workflows going forward.

Session #2

Dynamo Show and Tell by the DoC Members

Presented by YOU the Dynamaniacs of Calgary

We are looking for people to do a little Show and Tell of their latest Dynamo projects, workflows, graphs, favourite packages or just some good old tips and tricks. We are only looking for 5 or 10 minutes from each “Show and Teller”, and no fancy powerpoint or presentation required (but welcomed if you wish). There will also be a short session to kick off the meeting about Dynamo 2.1 so you don’t have to worry about going first.

So if you would like to share during the Show and Tell just register for the event below and check “Yes” in the box asking if you want to share, optionally you can also share your topic if you wish. There is also a “Maybe?” option just in case you’re not sure and want to make it a game-time decision.

DoC Event #003 – Code vs. Node: Smackdown! with Eddy Bussiere & Carl Storms

Update: Dataset here

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

GEC ArchitectureSuite 300, 2207 4th Street SW, Calgary, AB T2S 1X1

This, the third DoC event, and the first of the 2017- 2018 season will be a live presentation by Eddy Bussiere from SMP Engineering & Carl Storms from IMAGINiT, both will be supporting one side of the “Code vs. Node” debate.

Eddy will be presenting the “Code” side of the debate talking about using C# code to make macros for Revit, that will help automate or otherwise improve your Revit workflow. Carl will be speaking on behave of the “Node” side of the debate showing how Dynamo can also be used, without the need for coding, to help automate or otherwise improve your Revit workflow.

This is will be a grudge match for the ages that you will not want to miss!

The idea for this event came from a session at this years BILT North America called – Code vs. Node: The Ultimate Revit Automation Smackdown! presented by Michael Kilkelly, who has been nice enough to let us deliver our version of his topic.

Michael runs a great website called ArchSmater that you should check out if you like what you see, some of the things he overs include Macro’s, Dynamo, Revit Templates, and even has his own custom Revit add-ons.
