algorithmic modeling for Rhino



Lyrebird is a set of plugins to instantiate Revit elements from Grasshopper data.

Lyrebird the plugin follows a similar logic as our previous interop tool, particularly that we create intelligent objects (families) in Revit so that when we use Grasshopper as a computational design tool, we structure the data in Grasshopper to make it easier to instantiate those Revit objects.  This isn’t so much about translating geometry between programs but instead translating data between them.  


Lyrebird Introduction from LMN Tech Studio on Vimeo.

With Lyrebird we have attempted to think through all of the possible ways we may want to translate between Grasshopper and Revit, and work within the constraints of both of their API’s to make sure the resulting elements are still user friendly and can be easily manipulated either in Revit or through Grasshopper.
