How to Control 9,298,091,736 Design Options in Project Fractal

Has this ever happened to you?  You make a Dynamo graph, save it to the web and look at it on Fractal, but generating options seems to never finish.  This could be because you’re trying to create 9,298,091,736 designs! We’ve now added some controls to help with this problem right in the Fractal interface. There is a …

Facade Design with Energy Analysis in Project Fractal

One of the examples the Fractal team has shown is the facade energy analysis video, where we have one output of the Dynamo graph predicting the energy use of the building by evaluating factors such as building orientation (an assumption is made), window-to-wall ratio, and the surface area of shading devices: We arrived at these …

Project Fractal goes to Europe

Written by Anthony Hauck For the last 8 months, the Project Fractal team has been preparing for the European Revit Technology Conference (RTC) in Porto, Portugal, readying the class “Generative Design with Project Fractal” for which we signed up last year. At the time we proposed the class, truth be told, we had a lot more …

Project Fractal Massing, FAR, FormIt and Parking

A few interesting things that customers have been up to with the Project Fractal Alpha. First up, Shepley Bulfinch: Kyle is also the guiding hand of Dynamo-litia, the Boston Dynamo User group. Also, some interesting work from Mike Engel at ESG Architects. Mike evidently figured out that a downloaded design option in STL format opens up nicely in Autodesk FormIt, taking …

Project Fractal and Space Planning at Perkins + Will

Since we started the Project Fractal Alpha we’ve seen some great work from customers testing Project Fractal itself as well as some of the example workflows we’ve been exploring. As mentioned in earlier posts, we’ve been working since January with Perkins + Will’s Atlanta office on a Dynamo graph called the Space Plan Generator (SPG), …

Announcing Project Fractal

As you might have guessed, we’ve been pretty busy over the last couple of months with Project Fractal development and attending the industry events that tend to congregate in the calendar just before summer holidays, not that it’s stopping RTC North America, where some of us will be in July,. So, let’s have a catch …

Dynamo Fractals

Dynamo lends itself to the creation of fractals (and other recursive geometry) thanks to the recursive capacities of Custom Nodes: I wrote an in-depth tutorial on the subject over here: http://steellworks.blogspot.com/2013/08/dynamo-fractals.html

SFU & Autodesk Workshop @ AAG in Chalmers Sweden – limited Seats available

If you are based in the Noridcs and wanting to Kickstart into Dynamo and Optimization join us for the SFU & Autodesk Dynamo Workshop at AAG2018 in Chalmers, Sweden Sept 22-23th -> only limited seats available https://bit.ly/2N4kg50 Title: Design Optimization and Exploration A single parametric model generates an infinite number of concrete designs. Which are “best”? Which …

AU London 2018: Computational BIM Workshop

Did you miss Autodesk University Las Vegas 2017 last year and the pre-conference Computational BIM workshops? Was it perhaps too far to travel across the vast Atlantic ocean? Timing just didn’t work? Well never fear, the UK Dynamo User Group (UKDynUG), in conjunction with Designtech.io and Innovating Futures, are putting on a redux version: If you missed …

Computational BIM Workshop Materials + Datasets

Did you miss Autodesk University 2017 this year and the pre-conference Computational BIM workshops? Well, don’t stress. The handouts/slides, datasets, and videos are now available and we have provided links to all of these resources at dynamobim.org/learn/#workshop For the Beginner workshops, learn the basics of node-wire diagramming in Dynamo. The following topics are covered: Getting Started …
