A quick visit on the the site(Olympic Stadium transformation) on last Friday.Was very exciting, especially when you are on and under the roof. The scale of the structure is breath taking, no doubt about it. I had a chance to take a closer look at it with a professional explanation from site architects about major and most important key elements during that job. It is still a work in progress. When it will end , the stadium will have one of the biggest roofs in the world of sports objects(if not the biggest one:)).
A cable structure, closer to the main lighting fixtures(arrangement of a light is adjusted and designed for particular type of games).
Me – just before entering to the stadium.
On the Roof. Beautiful City of London panorama with a roof structure in the first plan(on the left – Canary Wharf, on the right The City).
View of one of the vomitoriums and terracing units form a roof level (not an usual way of looking at it :)). Precast concrete looks really impressive.
It was really spectacular and unique experience – learned a lot. Now I have a wider, almost a full picture of detail needed to be provided in a BIM system(have to find appropriate place for them in hole scope of deliverables).
I’ve made a workflow for a cable roof optioning.Nice and easy study with basic variables. Pure shifting method is used here as a driving core for that basic feasibility study.
Simplifying all analytic steps through a whole BIM process is a crucial factor for all kinds of managing benefits, from IT site to shared information.
Right now i’m during a process of making Dynamo plugin as a Main BIM Platform. The core is still Revit, however all aspects from BIM Environment are going to be covered on Dynamo canvas. Few custom nodes are obviously needed and a lot of python scripting but it is worthy the effort, I think. At the moment I am able to control 90% of a hole design process with very complex project.
That was something! Fantastic Show Still thinking about amount of people I met in Manchester on that great event(some old friends too)! Presentation went smoothly. At the beginning I was little nervous, but after few words it just vanished. I’ve managed to talk a little bit about bowl design pendulum, which is :
- C value Mapping,
- Restricted Views Mapping,
- Controlling Egress schemes,
- Seat Distribution,
- Focus line, Structural Grids & Vomitoriums
- and finally Bowl & Sightlines Section Generator
I am preparing very interesting presentation for BIM Live Show this year.
Together with my college Oonagh we will introduce our bespoke tools useful for all design stages according to bowl design process in stadia.
Slides are already done, stress is growing!
See you there!:
Not long ago, to recreate Panels in Revit from Rhino, I had to use excel spreadsheet. Workflow was quite limited and not really automatic.
Dynamo and Rhynamo’s Dlls are complete different game. It is a fully automatic process without any extra file format.
Again, Thank You so much Dynamo and Rhynamo Teams!
To me it is 100% of Art!
Thanks to a Rhynamo’s Dll, creating bridge between Rhino and Revit is possible, easy and very simple. Please see an example below.
From thousands of lines generated in Rhino & Grasshopper I was able to create some kind of substructure for facade panels in a blink of an eye. Advantages are obvious – pure and clear production phase without remodelling any of item.
Thank you Nathan!
Some kind of basic external, skin(for stadium, probably) made in Dynamo for Revit. The aim of that exercise was to create a facade, with fully controlled sinusoidal coordinate system.
A simple spiral form created in Dynamo for Revit. The tool allows a flexible connection between designer thoughts and Revit capabilities in terms of object parametrization.
The latest release is briefly saying: great. Gentle exchange inside the syntax only improve the way of working with that plugin. Revit itself is a fantastic tool in general, but with Dynamo it just do not give a chance to competition.
