After several months of development, Chameleon Gets Parametric!
My buddy Michael McCune from CASE has posted a review of Chameleon on his blog, Collective BIM. Read it here: http://collectivebim.com/grasshopper-revit-interoperability-chameleon/
Beyond BIM Basics is a three-hour panel & workshop event on advanced topics related to BIM interoperability. Hosted by AIA DC and organized by Hiroshi Jacobs, the event will feature two individuals who are at the leading edge of the use of technology in design and construction: Jennifer Downey, Manager of Support Services at Turner Construction and Zach Downey, former Director of Applied Technology at SHoP Architects and partner at Parabox.
Together we will discuss moving beyond the use of BIM for documentation, towards more value added purposes. This comes with 3 LU’s and the link with more information and registration is here: http://aiadc.com/calendar/event/beyond-bim-basics
This event is for all experience levels, from project managers to interns/students. It will be about the what, why AND the how of moving beyond BIM basics. The event will be held from 2-5pm on Saturday, April 6.

This coming Spring semester, Catholic University’s School of Architecture and Planning is hosting a special introductory course in computational design, taught by Hiroshi Jacobs. The course will introduce the ideas and possibilities of computational design via a hands-on approach. Through lectures, tutorials and physical prototypes, the course will review the technical skills required to design using parametric methodologies, as well as engage with contemporary discourse on the changing nature of digital design.
