Tuesday was all about Dynamo and Refinery. Our Product Managers for each presented their technologies and dug into some specifics on how to use them.
First up was Sol Amour, PM for Dynamo.
Next was Lilli Smith, PM for Refinery.
Simon Breslav then dove more deeply into Project Rediscover (something I’ll myself be talking about at AU 2019 in Las Vegas, so I’ll definitely be digging into his material for this).
To wrap up Day 2, Hali Larsen and Connor Stevens presented different approaches for creating geometry systems for GD.
Ray Wang and Hali continued this topic at the beginning of Day 3, drawing on The Living’s experience defining geometry systems for customer projects. Ray then talked about choosing and implementing evaluation metrics, the other key part of GD for AEC workflows.
There was also a lot of time spent whiteboarding and capturing feedback on the tools themselves.
Thursday and Friday – Days 4 and 5 – contained a number of breakout sessions – both in-person and remote – looking at various packages that are helpful when implementing GD workflows using Dynamo and Refinery.
The remote sessions were:
- DynaMaps – Mostafa El Ayoubi
- Machina for Dynamo / Robotic Control – Jose Luis Garcia del Castillo Lopez
- Dynamo-to-Robot Structural Analysis – Harry Mitchell
- Topologic + Topologic Energy – Wassim Jabi
The in-person sessions were:
- Space Analysis – Rhys Goldstein and Simon Breslav
- Daylighting / Solar Analysis – Simon Breslav
Here are some pics from Rhys and Simon’s Space Analysis session:
Week 2 is more focused on communication and storytelling, so I helped kick things off yesterday with a remote session on using Capturefinery.
Today I’m heading across to Amsterdam where I’ll once again be presenting on our research into Generative Design for AEC. I’ll be continuing to track the Residency’s progress from afar, though, and will report more news later in the week.
