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:

• Dynamo 1.3.3

And if you would like to know a little bit more about me, you can find me on LinkedIn.
