ASLA 2019: Session Dataset

Some of you may know that I presented at ASLA in San Diego this past November. The session was Zero to One: Open Your Practice to the World of BIM.

My portion of the session was a live demonstration of Revit, plus some Dynamo. Here is a link to download the session data set, which includes a Revit file, a few AutoCAD files, three Dynamo scripts, and associated Dynamo packages.

File Requirements:
• Revit 2019
• Dynamo 1.3.3
