Lynda – Advanced Revit and Dynamo for Interior Design
Reimagine your space with these interior design tutorials from lynda.com. Learn how to use interior design software like SketchUp and Revit to design a floor plan, visualize products, and even create schedules for construction.
Autodesk Dynamo helps users overcome many of the design challenges they face in Revit. Using Dynamo, interior designers can create visual logic to approach their modeling challenges in smarter, more efficient ways. This course shows how to use different Revit features?and automated assistance from Dynamo?to streamline the design and documentation process in Revit. Explore key Dynamo concepts, including how to place families and combine parameter information. In addition, discover how to model walls and floors, create a graphic finish legend, and synchronize modeled information with the room finish schedule.
Featured tutorial: Revit 2019: Custom Furniture Modeling uses Revit for interior design modeling. In this course by Chante Bright, users can model complex feature units and build small details to help add that extra oomph to an interior design project.
Rhino is the best software for design and quick production of data. It essential to learn it in Arch industry, with new Plugins in gh and rhino inside revit, you will benefit a lot. Go for it without doubt
rhino is mainstream design software in the large international design firms i've worked at and essential if you want involvement in front end design work. i say this as a principal with 15 years experience who isn't building the models every day but still needs to be able to open things up and figure out what's going on. we very often develop geometries in rhino which get built into the revit model after being figured out.
high rise towers, mostly but sometimes transportation facilities. it's the combination of modeling complicated geometry quickly and integrating fairly detailed patterns and decorative ideas to do facade studies even when very basic design parameters haven't been fixed that makes it useful. i'd hesitate to say revit can't model them, but i have no idea how you would model it in revit starting from a blank file - you need to have a framework to organize the work in revit. it takes extra steps which aren't necessary until the design is settled and ready to start documenting.
like archanonymous we've never used them - the mep consultants do the energy modeling using specialized software. sometimes we do vegetables crude daylighting analyses of interior spaces and sunlight studies on facades. tbh they aren't influential on the design because no one knows what to make of the information nor how reliably it will relate to the real conditions. when done it's usually just to decorate a report and give the impression the design achieves some hypothetical optimum of performance. i prefer to omit these kind of bs studies from my reports - no clients have ever had anything to say about them anyway.
i would never consider being able to do this modeling a useful skill for a young designer because noone on the team knows how to use the information generated, or what should be targeted for a given project. when i've seen it done it was usually on a revit model using third party software - i don't know what one.
We are a small office, usually around 10 people. We use rhino and recently switched from acad to revit because we are working on larger projects in Europe. So far I find that Revit is not good for developing designs, though that may change. Cant imagine using Revit to design anything ever.
