title Generative BIM Automation Strategies for Prefabricated Multi-Family Housing Design
source Kepczynska-Walczak, A, Bialkowski, S (eds.), Computing for a better tomorrow - Proceedings of the 36th eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, Lodz University of Technology, Lodz, Poland, 19-21 September 2018, pp. 247-256
summary The increasing housing shortage in contemporary Poland calls for efficient ways of design and construction. In the context of time efficiency and shrinking manpower, prefabrication is considered as one of the means of introducing low and middle income housing to the market. The article presents the process of developing an experimental tool for aiding multi-family housing architectural design with the use of prefabrication. We use the potential of BIM technology as a flexible environment for comparing multiple design options and, therefore, supporting the decision-making process. The presented experiment is realized in the Autodesk Revit environment and incorporates custom generative scripts developed in Dynamo-for-Revit and Grasshopper. The prototype tool analyzes an input Revit model and simulates a prefabricated alternative based on the user-specified boundary conditions. We present our approach to the analyzing and the splitting of the input model as well as five different strategies of performing the simulation within the Revit environment.
