Computational Parametric Designing Using Dynamo and Revit now made easy with (K-Attractor)

In this video I'll explain about a tool I have programmed recently called K-Attractor, it opens doors for amazing new concepts in designing using Revit ! It can be used as a generator for your parametric patterns or adaptive components to provide you with dozens of endless possibilities based on your attractors in the conceptual massing environment and/or can work in the project environment with the loadable families. The special thing in this tool is that you do not have to use reporting parameters and repeating as a Technic to create your attractor, as that Technic is quite heavy on Revit and time consuming, also the K-Attractor works with pattern based families, which cannot be achieved using the Reporting old style method. Please enjoy this video, and don't forget all the samples used in the video are available in the "extra" Synthesize folder of the toolkit :)

Synthesize Toolkit won in DynAwards

Am very happy to announce that I have won in the DynAwards competition held by designtech

K-Join (Auto Joining your Revit projects without effort)

Hi, in this post, I would like to introduce to a tool called K-Join,

It is a part of Synthesize toolkit in Dynamo,

Now this tool in short does the following :

Can you manage to see how the model in completely joined ?
Good, That's it,.. enjoy :)

Elegant Scene in V-Ray for Revit

After a bit of practicing on the new V-Ray for Revit, I could create scenes in this quality,
It just feels great to be able to produce such realistic output Directly from Revit,

More to come, stay tuned :)

Revit Tip: Save Time Converting Revit Families with KConvert

Powering up families with KCONVERT (Changing the hosts of families without having to re-create them, and keeping all the parameters working perfectly!) In this topic, I address some amazing functionalities that can be done with Revit families, It is like adding super powers to a family, Now, here's the thing, When it comes to situations where you'd need to convert a family from (Wall, Ceiling, Roof) Based into something like Face Based You either do a re-creation of that family Or you use the Copy/Monitor trick (A bit tedious) and may cause some problems The solution is in this Video,



The FULCRUM project

I wanted to introduce you to one of my best students' work, it is the FULCRUM tower, Created in Revit, rendered with V-Ray for Revit, for the Exteriors, and A360 Cloud for the Interiors :)

It's one of my favorites, check out how the Fog effect acts in V-Ray for Revit

V-Ray for Revit 3.4 Released !

We have all been waiting for this !

Thank you Chaosgroup for featuring my projects in the main launch of V-Ray,

Please check Autodesk Gallery for the full projects :

Some of the main keypoints I want to give attention to are :

-The material editor, it has the exact same abilities found on other softs like 3DsMax and others,

-The support of Dome light, which we had only available on the cloud's environment,

-The workflow of it doesn't affect BIM process at all, the materials with all there information are kept inside the project untouched, I mean that V-Ray is a completely isolated from the project regarding, and only gets active when you call it,

Some of the experiments that shows the main Visualization elements in action :


Synthesize workflow

The aim of this workflow is Freedom.
The freedom of designing free-forms and organic, fluid Architectural forms.
It's true that Revit can design it, but let's face it, when it comes to Fluidity, it's trickier to achieve them in Revit without incorporating a lot of formulas and a lot of calculations.

But this is where the help of other tools can come in handy. Using Fusion 360's T-Spline environment can be valuable in these situations.

This workflow explains how to properly link Fusion 360's forms with Revit.

In addition, the infamous Voronoi pattern is pretty difficult to achieve using Dynamo's out-of-the-box nodes,
I'm sharing with you a workflow that contains a custom-made package (Synthesize toolkit) to help achieve the great results.
