Pt 5: Brute Forcing Daylighting Parameters – Design Options

  See part 4 here   Now that we have seen the necessary setup to perform and parse a single render using the cloud rendering service in the last blog posts, we can start queuing multiple renderings of a Revit model as we alter parameters on it.   This graph and the custom nodes necessary to make this graph run will be hoste

Pt 4: Recursive Hill Climbing Optimization in Dynamo

See part 3 here See part 5 here One workflow that is a bit tricky to get started with in Dynamo is iterating on the output of a function with the same function.  We could stack a chain of these nodes together ( I'm using the term function and node interchangeably here) feeding the output from one node into the input of another. &

Pt 3: Cloud Rendering With Dynamo

See part 2 here See part 4here Before getting into daylight renderings and searching for optimized solutions we should get a simple cloud rendering working correctly. The graph below shows the simplest setup to get a render job uploaded and to view the resulting image.  You can check out this sample from within Dynamo.  Go to Help m

Augmented Reality Research at Georgia Tech

Our past summer intern and colleague Racel Williams is finishing up her Masters Thesis at Georgia Tech with a focus on augmented reality systems. If you have a moment, help out Racel by filling out her quick survey. See below: We are researchers and students from Georgia Tech's College of Computing who are exploring the area of Mobile Augmented Rea

Vasari Wind Analysis Tool – What is under the bonnet…?

Hi All, I understand that Vasari as a design tool is more geared towards early stages of design and therefore not to be taken too seriously however I am curious to know which calculation method is used, RANS, DES, LES etc... for the CFD type wind analysis?  Other forum posts seem to lead to the same DOE-2 calculation engine response however I bel
