Weekly Workflow: Use Conveyor to populate Revit with Trimble Warehouse Components (SketchUp Not Required)

This Conveyor V4-based workflow is an efficient option for designers who primarily work in Revit and Rhino - no SketchUp license required. It could be used to populate Revit models with 3D content for creating renderings, test fitting furniture in interior design schemes, or converting private SketchUp library content into Revit families.

Weekly Workflow: Converting Units in Power BI

Data in Power BI can be thought of as "Read Only", meaning that it is not possible to make changes to the values in your data once it is imported. This can cause some confusion regarding unit conversion and other simple calculations among new users, but Power BI provides an easy to use solution: Custom Columns.

Weekly Workflow: Train an Algorithm to Label Spaces for You

Labeling spaces can be a tedious process, but Machine Learning tools have the potential to give designers reprieve from manually typing in each space name. Classifier algorithms are able to reference training data and group lists of new elements into classes based on their characteristics and similarities to the data on which it was trained.

Weekly Workflow: Evaluate Panel Flatness with LunchBox

LunchBox's "Flatness Check" tool can analyze a series of panels and their deviations from a flat plane. The component is straightforward to use, requiring the user to input a list of panels. It returns a list of flattened panel geometry, a list of planes, and a list of numerical deviations from the original geometry.
