Automated Dimensioning in FreeCAD – Python

Disclaimer:  All views expressed in this post are my own and not the views of BuroHappold. (For Educational purposes only) Hi all. In continuation of my last post Parametric Prefab Panel in FreeCAD – Python, today I extended the Python code to 175 lines with automated dimensioning functionality as well. Please see the brief video on…

Parametric Prefab Panel in FreeCAD – Python

Disclaimer:  All views expressed in this post are my own and not the views of BuroHappold. (For Educational purposes only) Hi Everyone. Today, I made a parametric triangular wall panel in FreeCAD using Python. The adjustable parameters include: Length of panel Height of panel Sill height of opening Height of opening Width of opening Thickness…

Python for FreeCAD

Disclaimer:  All views expressed in this post are my own and not the views of BuroHappold. (For Educational purposes only) Hi Everyone. How are you all doing! Hope you all are great. It has been a year that the blog has been inactive. Especially, I’ve not posted anything regarding my favourite BIM tool FreeCAD. Though,…

BIM for Everyone

Disclaimer:  All views expressed in this post are my own and not the views of BuroHappold. Hi Everyone, Well, this post is really for everyone. As in my previous article, I discussed The Ongoing Evolution of BIM in the whole AEC sector, the way by which our engineering practices are changing and the progression of digitalisation…

The Ongoing Evolution of BIM

Disclaimer:  All views expressed in this post are my own and not the views of BuroHappold. Hi, Everyone. The current time in the AEC industry can be considered as the best phase where one can see the ongoing evolution of BIM. It has been just a few years for some countries to experience the taste…

Recreating Qutub Minar

  Hi Everyone. Ancient structures have been the most fascinating piece of architecture of all times. The beauty of their complex geometries has been the point of attraction for many experts.  One of such structures is the Qutub Minar in India. Today, I tried to recreate it digitally in BIM through Dynamo. Following are some…

Dynamo vs Cooking

Hi, Everyone. This weekend has been totally different for me. It is the first time in my life that I’ve cooked some food and believe me, it feels really great that provided me with immense happiness. I was able to cook a couple of pretty delicious dishes as shown in the snapshot above. I got…

Dynamo: The Visible Mathematics

Hi Everybody. I hope you all are enjoying the first day of this year. Today, I tried furthermore possibilities of parametric design with Dynamo. The results are very impressive and save a lot of time being wasted in small irritating repetitive steps. By using visual programming, one can realise the mathematical equations being transformed into…

Experimenting with Dynamo

Hi Everyone. First of all, wishing you all a very Happy New year. May this year bring a lot more learning in everyone’s life. I began this new year by experimenting with Dynamo. I created a parametric design of a fancy structural roof. The power of Algorithm Aided Design is that one gets with enormous…

Parametric BIM in Dynamo

Hi Everyone. I tried to make the first day of this weekend a li’l constructive by designing a Parametric Overhead Water Tank in Dynamo. In one of my previous articles, I designed a similar parametric water tank in FreeCAD. The approach of modelling in Dynamo is totally different. It is entirely based on Algorithm Aided Design by…

BIM: The Unrecognised Engineering

Hi Everyone. I hope you all are doing great. These days I probably get time on weekends only to share few words with you. This article includes my thoughts that I’ve been experiencing from so long the day I started researching on BIM. The whole AEC industry is aggressively working on implementing BIM in their…
