Autodesk Generative Design Beta for AEC – Project Refinery


Autodesk Generative Design Beta for AEC - Project Refinery
At Autodesk have used our generative design for architecture and layout to design our MaRS office in Toronto and an intelligent flow and layout for Autodesk University,  now we are making it available as a beta publicly for you to try it and provide your requests and feedback.


Project Refinery is an Autodesk generative design beta for the architecture, engineering and construction industry that gives users the power to quickly explore and optimize their Dynamo designs.     Project Refinery not only lets you create design options, but it also allows you to set goals and optimize for those goals.  When you choose to maximize or minimize designated outputs, Refinery will return the best options.  Refinery allows users to leverage the power of the Dynamo package manger and run custom nodes including Python nodes.  Refinery runs locally and allows custom code to participate in design option generation.  Refinery will run in Dynamo for Revit or Dynamo Sandbox and includes a node to cache Revit data for use in option generation.  

Refinery is still a beta project. There are rough edges, but if you would like to try it out and work with us to advance generative design for AEC we would be thrilled. “
