Finally, we’ve released v1.0 of AECTech’s Dynamo package !!! This post is a guide to help you get started by demonstrating some of the use cases Please head over to the download page below if you have yet done so!
This package is always a Work-In-Progress (WIP), so if there’s any feedback or functions you’d feel is useful, do drop us a comment below or DM !!! Hearing directly from users of the products we built is what keeps us working hard everyday. So trust me when we say that even a short message will help us go a long way! 🙂
The following use cases or workflows are built to around nodes found in AECTech’s Dynamo package, hopefully it can give you guys a good starting point or even some ideas to tinker about!
1. Excel Visualization
Well, we feel that this single node should already suffice for you to download the package. Gone are those days of RE-opening excel repeatedly just to check your results appear correctly!
Check out how ~Sleeekk this could be for you 🙂

***Note: List.Create acts as a buffer node required to add another layer of nesting, else data will be displayed on a different sheet.
2. Keyplan Generation w/ Computer Vision (CV)
Truth be told, the primary motivations with CV was because of this use case to begin with. Since keyplans doesn’t require precision to the “milli” or even “centi” meters, we thought this was possible to be crafted using computer vision.
The video below shows our attempt…by using common CV functions such as Canny edge detection, Morphology as well as Threshold operations. And the final FindContourLines node is developed to attempt converting image lines to dynamo lines. Which were eventually converted to Detail lines in Revit.

3. Dialux to Revit Elements
Done with your lighting simulations in Dialux? Trying to update them in your Revit model? You can now do so with this package, importing elements created in Dialux (.STF), then creating Revit elements from the STF file in Dynamo!
This one’s for the lighting designers 🙂

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post, and was helpful in helping you kickstart use of our package. Do share with us and tell us what you’ve done with the package, and of course what you’d like to see in the future!
