Carl Storms

BIM Track
Technical Solutions Lead

Carl knows BIM.

He knows modeling, coordination, and improving processes; he’s been doing it for over 20 years. And above all, he knows how to teach and inspire others to adopt BIM/VDC in their own workflows.

He loves talking shop about BIM and ConTech; seriously, get him started and he won’t stop! Or, if you’re not in the mood to talk BIM/VDC, Carl is always on the lookout for any excuse to chat about his newest passion: learning to code.

Carl doesn’t bite, so reach out to him directly on Twitter @theBIMsider, on his Blog thebimsider.com, or listen to his smooth voice on pretty much any AECO podcast you can find.

My Speakers Sessions

  • Wednesday, 15 June, 2022
    • Digital Built Week Americas 2022 | API: A Not-So Master Class
      Carl Storms, BIM Track
      Coding and Customisation
      Non Vendor Specific

      Synopsis:The goal of this session is not to make you a programmer. The goal is to give you some information,
      resources, and tips to allow you to use an API to get a little extra data, functionality, or interoperability
      out of your BIM tools and workflows. -Learning Objectives:1. What is an Application Programming Interface (API) anyway?
      2. Why it?s okay to not be a computer scientist and dabble in APIs.
      3. Ways to make the Revit API a little more user friendly.
      4How using Postman can make access API?s easier and add in some custom scripting to boot. Body:In today’s rapidly evolving BIM industry, interoperability is no longer a nice to have, but a real project
      need. That is why the use of APIs has grown and why an understanding of them, even a little, can be
      a real advantage. This session is NOT for API Pros, but for those that have heard about APIs and wonder
      how a non-programmer could make use of them.
      In this session, we will learn what an Application Programming Interface really is and how even a noncoder
      can make use of them. We will learn about resources and tools to help shed some light on the
      good, the bad, the ugly and the downright weird things about the Revit API. We will also learn about
      using tools like Postman to make accessing APIs easier. And how using Postman can allow for some
      custom scripting to automate some boring tasks like deleting PDFs or adding users to a project.
      This session will provide info, resources & tips about using an API to get extra data, functionality, or
      interoperability out of your BIM workflows.
