Do you want to learn Dynamo but don't have the time? 

Does your need to be billable override your desire to learn? 

Are you already working 50+ hours a week and just want to get home in time for dinner with your family?

Sound familiar?

Dynamo is a powerful tool that can help you save a LOT of time in Revit. 

But it takes time to learn how to use it.

And time is in short supply when you’re already working on a bunch of projects.

That's why I created Dynamo for Busy People

Get a Dynamo lesson a day for 25 days delivered straight to your inbox. 

You'll get the Dynamo script file and an annotated screenshot that shows you exactly how the script was created.

Each week's scripts will address a specific aspect of Revit. Here's the schedule of topics.

  • Week 1: Sheets
  • Week 2: Views
  • Week 3: Geometry
  • Week 4: Families
  • Week 5: Miscellaneous

The scripts will progress in complexity throughout the week, with each script building on the previous one.

At the end of the twenty-five days, you'll have twenty-five new tools.
