BSS TALKS – NATHAN LUKE – GEOMETRY GYM about Parametric BIM Models
We are very happy and excited to welcome Nathan Luke, Structural engineering consultant, software and tool developer from Geometry Gym.
Nathan joined GeometryGym in late 2018 after 8 years as a structural engineering consultant. Nathan is apart of the software development, training, support and sales teams and predominately focuses on tools development and supporting engineering clients. So he has a lot to explain and show us!
So let’s listen him and enjoy this hour with his great and dedicated work!
A bit about Geometry Gym : Founded in 2009, Geometry Gym started predominately around the idea of generating structural analysis models from complex architectural forms, generally between Rhino3d/Grasshopper and Oaysis GSA. As a transfer mechanism Jon learnt about the world of IFC and OpenBIM as a way of transferring this information between a whole range of software applications. So they do an amazing and incredible job!
How you can be part of it? Join to our Building System Specialist Title and a lot of Talks, Suprises are waiting for you : )
A lot of research shows that from 60 to 75 percent of our population speak at least two languages so they are multilingual. And as we know, many countries have more than one official national language – like Switzerland with four or South Africa with eleven. But why most of us speak only one software language? Do you want to become BIMlingual?
We have around 6500 languages in the world, but we don’t know the exact number. We can talk about dialects, less widely spoken ones, popular and official. Our students and professors speak 20 human languages and communicate in at least 4 different ones every day.
As research shows, the human brain has evolved to be multilingual, and those who speak only one language and are monolingual are not exploring their full potential. Biological evolution, language evolution, technological evolution, but most changes are driven by environmental, social and political pressures. Computer and software languages are just as important for expressing ourselves, our ideas as human languages. In order to achieve our professional freedom, we have to overcome our BIM monolingualism.
We are proud that more and more languages are joining our BSS group – both on a human and computer level! : )
BE MULTILINGUAL = BIMlingual
Communication is fundamental to human existence and survival. From the first day we are born, we give signals to be understood and listened. During our lives it is continuous. It gets easier in the moment when we start to use a communication channel that is understood by more parties. Communication is the act of sharing information from one person to another person or group of people.
Every time we understand a different language, a different culture, a different software, we better understand the world, so our job and the others. It is economically, emotionally and socially beneficial. As we see in the AEC world, translators, exports and imports between software and version takes us a lot of time and errors.
Each new language gives you a new perspective and update to better understand the routes in order to improve your problem solving skills, to be able to multitask, make better and more rational, systematic and clear decisions and communicate and help across professionals / your team and countries.
Become BSS BIMlingual, open up a new opportunity and make your communication easier and find the perfect channel with others.
Bilingual brains depending on their task and what they want to express they sort out which language to use. They know in which task which one to use to solve problems faster and more accurate, expressing themselves that the others understand. It is something that they do not have to think about, it is coming automatically. Each new one will be a greater benefit, helping your brain to keep fit and healthy, not speaking about your professional opportunities and additional doors what you will open for your advance your career.
We know it is investment of time, energy and money. To make it structured, direct, and personal we built up the only and unique professional BSS – the Building System Specialist Title. You will connect ArchiCAD + Grasshopper, Revit with RhinoInside Revit. It will have a massive impact in your professional career, meanwhile we talk you BIMlingualRhinoceros3D, Grasshopper, Archicad, Revit, Rhino Inside Revit, Paramo, Python, Ladybug and much until you also can : D
We are very happy and excited that our BUILDING SYSTEMS are getting REAL : D From the online PAZ Platform we are jumping now to the construction side ; )
This video shows a collaboration with our BSS – Building System Specialist PAZ-NET raaa.nl bna on a wooden façade for a private Mondrian inspired house in the Netherlands : D 🏡
We are very excited and happy with this project and collaboration!
FIRST SKETCHES, IDEAS
This video shows the first sketches and ideas, how to combine concept & theory & technology and how to bring ideas directly to production : )
THE VEINES AND ROUTES OF THE HOUSE
This video shows the most important step of the concept to understand the articulation and the veins of the house ; )
Here we show the process in a visual way how to bring information, data, industrial systems from websites, pdf-s, databases, books, emails, etc. and transform it to useful information to the computer 🖥️
It is a tiny part of our wood systems book with the steps, parameters and decisions of how the data, characteristics and properties were processed creating a matrix of options. We made a flexible tool transforming the inputs, predefined wood systems from the manufacturer into the computer language adapted to our design with all the joints and details ready for construction optimizing the material to save money and create less waste 🪓 In our case we had a manual for an industrial wood system, which we transformed into a 3D wood system with all the sizes, gaps, support structures and properties : ) 📏
We will soon publish the date for the Project Presentation with Rebaz Ali to explain you this amazing process and project to you!! Stay tuned and be part of the story ; D ⚡
Join and grow with our BSS – Building System Specialist Title and check, learn and buy our WOOD SYSTEMS BOOK to connect with your professional life : )
We are very happy and excited to welcome Kean Walmsley, Software Architect from Autodesk Research.
He is working on projects that integrate IoT data with BIM (sometimes called Digital Twins) via the Forge platform, as well as working on Generative Design in the AEC space. He has worked in various roles – and in various countries – during his career at Autodesk, including building and managing teams of software developers. Kean engages regularly with Autodesk’s developer and computational design communities, providing technical content and insights into technology evolution : D
Let’s listen him and enjoy this hour with his great and dedicated work!
