Sean Fruin

Mechanical Engineer/ Design Technologies, Sigma AEC Solution

Speaker Bio

Sean Fruin is a Mechanical Engineer (EIT) who has an ardent fascination with automation and the exploration of computational design solutions for the AEC industry. He has had the opportunity to learn many aspects of the design industry, having worked in manufacturing, MEP designing, and General Contracting. Sean started Sigma AEC Solutions, a BIM consulting firm focusing on engineering and process improvement and is living his dream; having the opportunity to explore the latest technologies and acquire the knowledge to innovate, improve efficiency and increase quality in the AEC industry.

CS322533 - Getting into the Flow of Generative Design for MEP Converging technologies will soon disrupt the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry as new automated workflows emerge. Generative design is the pinnacle of these new workflows. Once a problem is thoroughly and adequately defined, all possible design variations can be produced, explored, scored, and optimized. This class will show that generative design can be used for MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) design engineering. We’ll use Revit software and Dynamo 2.0 to define a specific problem that will then be used to explore a range of design options for ceiling plans and duct layouts. We’ll then rank the design variations to explore cost and energy consumption using Project Refinery. Going through this exercise will show how, with a thoroughly defined problem, we can use data science to explore a more extensive array of design options to ultimately make better design choices, saving both time and money, and letting the engineer focus on more critical tasks. 60 Minutes Instructional Demo Sean Fruin
