      BILT
      Next Generation
      Autodesk, Other Vendor

      Synopsis: Rhino.Inside is an open source Rhino WIP project which allows Rhino and Grasshopper to run inside other 64-bit Windows applications such as Revit, AutoCAD and Unity. Yep that’s right, you heard right – Rhino and Grasshopper within Revit! This class with demonstrate how to harness the power of Rhino.Inside to improve interoperability and functionality within Revit.Learning Objectives: 1. Understand and identify opportunities for Rhino.Inside to be implemented into your existing BIM workflows
      2. Understand the benefits of using Rhino.Inside over Dynamo
      3. Create bi-directional workflows between Revit and Rhino to maximise interoperabilityBody: For years now, AEC professionals have struggled with interoperability between different softwares. This gave rise to a whole range of interoperability tools such as Flux and Konstru. Over recent years however, there has been a concerted effort to replicate other software capabilities natively within Revit using Dynamo. However, it seems now that in one fell swoop, Robert McNeel & Associates have solved what others couldn’t with the release of Rhino.Inside.

    • BILT ANZ 2021, Sydney | How to innovate like a pro
      Paul Wintour, Parametric Monkey
      Not Applicable
      BILT
      Non Vendor Specific

      Synopsis: This class will explore the concept of innovation in a systematic and evidence-based approach. We’ll first explore the difference between sustaining and disruptive technologies and how doing the right thing is actually the wrong thing. We’ll then discuss how to avoid cognitive biases when identifying innovation opportunities. Finally, we’ll look at how to align visions and define a strategy.Learning Objectives: 1. Learn to differentiate between sustaining and disruptive technologies
      2. Understand the innovator’s dilemma and how to respond accordingly
      3. Identify and define differences between operational effectiveness and strategyBody: Within the AEC technology sphere, terms such as ‘Innovation’ and ‘Digital transformation’ are frequently thrown around as a way for companies to position themselves as industry leaders. But what do these terms really mean? How do we separate the marketing hype from the reality? And how can companies avoid being one of the 70% in which change initiatives fail?

      By elevating the discourse from technology to strategy, we’ll explore these topics in a systematic and evidence-based approach. We’ll first explore the difference between sustaining and disruptive technologies and how doing the right thing is actually the wrong thing. We’ll then discuss how to avoid cognitive biases when identifying innovation opportunities and managing your innovation portfolio. Finally, we’ll look at how to align visions and define a strategy.

      This class is aimed at design technology managers who wish to gain greater traction in implementing change in their organisation.
