My modeling approach for this Module 2 Assignment very closely aligned with the structure of the Module Videos. I started with each step and did all of my modeling and analysis in Dynamo to improve run time. I went through each step, color coding, and very clearly labeling what each input was and made sure that it worked before going onto the next. For each of the steps, I clearly thought out what was the input opposed to the output and referenced the Module videos in formatting. I thought that dropping the pebble in the center of the pond was the easiest for me in terms of examining the ripple effect. When it got to the time to start playing around with the heights of the cylinders in order to create the “diminishing effect,” I definitely had to use a bit of trial and error back and forth, changing various parameters including wave amplitude, frequency, and base offset. I also added an additional value of 10 to my distance value to make sure that I was never dividing by a value of 0 such that the code went undefined. The very last step I did was implementing my modeling into Revit - I wanted to make sure the shape and trends were correct in dynamo before actually importing the family and changing the height and radius parameters in Revit. I had a lot of fun with this assignment overall! Two screenshots of my Revit and my Dynamo can be found below. The third screenshot shows my overall process and organization of the coding for this assignment.
