Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is John Pierson, and welcome to my course, An Introduction to Dynamo for Daily Use Within Revit. I am a Design Technology Leader at Dekker/Perich/Sabatini in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and a member of the Dynamo community. As a Design Technology Leader, I am responsible for Revit content management, training for all users, and streamlining Revit workflows. Dynamo is an extremely powerful visual scripting tool for Autodesk Revit, which allows the everyday user to access the Revit API on an unprecedented level. In this course, you're going to discover the ways that Dynamo can make your life easier in Revit by making you more efficient. Some of the major topics that we will cover include maintaining Dynamo installs, as well as custom packages; the community-driven effort behind Dynamo; collecting, filtering, and grouping Revit data within Dynamo; modifying Revit data and pushing it back to Revit with Dynamo; and ways to apply all of these methods in daily practice. By the end of this course, you'll know how to automate mundane tasks in Revit with Dynamo and build upon basic skills to be more efficient and more employable. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with Autodesk Revit. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into design computation with courses on advanced Dynamo workflows, generative design, computational design or parametric design, and the Revit API. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Dynamo with An Introduction to Dynamo for Daily Use Within Revit course, at Pluralsight.
