If you have experience in Revit software and Dynamo software, and you want to take your Dynamo skills to the next level, this workshop is for you. Learn advanced skills to combine computational design and Building Information Modeling (BIM) with Dynamo visual programming. We'll use Dynamo to create customized functions, improve building performance, and interoperate with other applications, data sources, and geometry tools in sophisticated ways. Some familiarity with Dynamo basics like list manipulation, geometry creation, and Revit interaction is required. This is a full-day class, including networking opportunities over breakfast, lunch, and drinks. This year we're also introducing a forum at the end of the day that will feature several speakers talking about practical applications of Dynamo to both instruct and inspire. Just getting started with computational BIM? You may prefer our "Computational BIM Workshop-Beginner" to learn the basics.
With multiple years of creating applications and developing custom solutions, Mark Mendez has extensive expertise and knowledge in the API and UX development area that continues to grow. A physicist by trade, Mark has consistently pushed the bounds of current frameworks and widely adopted workflows to bring solutions to clients that were previously thought unachievable. He also has a strong background in managing building information and has delivered solutions including clash detection, model/template management, model/template authoring, and virtual content creation. These solutions have been delivered in every aspect of BIM, from Architectural, Structural, and MEP design to Facilities Management and overall building life cycle across many different platforms and softwares.

Marcello is internationally recognized at one of the top BIM leaders and contributors to the education and implementation of BIM technology in the building industry. Marcello continually speaks at Autodesk University and the Revit Technology Conference (BILT) where he has received the 1st place speaker award for a record 12 times between 2012 thru 2016 between both conferences. Marcello received his Bachelors and Master’s degrees in Civil Engineering and he is also a licensed Civil and Structural Engineer.
After a decade of studying BIM focused on workflows with Revit, and serving twice as a BIM Manager, Carlo is now a consultant with EvolveLAB. When he became tired of the familiarity of Revit, he began a journey of leveraging knowledge of how Revit works and what it wants from the user-side, and began learning how to answer the questions of why it works as it does and how can it be made more efficient through scripting. He now spends his free time utilizing the Dynamo platform to develop Python scripts that interact with the Revit API and Windows .NET Framework to automate processes for streamlining repetitive tasks. Carlo is also a co-organizer of the Rocky Mountain Building Information Society (RoMBIS), a Denver-based BIM user group.
