Jaime Alonso Candau


CoFounder, CTO

Jaime graduated with Master in Architecture in Universitat Politecnica de Valencia (Spain) in 2017. From 2017 to 2020, he combined his job as architect with advanced visual scripting and programming. The difficulties of sharing and accessing BIM automation scripts led Jaime and Blanca to launch Nonica.io in 2020 and program their first Autodesk Revit Add-In from scratch. Nonica.io is an Add-In that simplifies access and deployment of Dynamo automation scripts at scale. Since January 2021, Blanca and Jaime are Autodesk Authorized Developers and develop Dynamo scripts and custom Add-Ins available in Autodesk App Store. Jaime is established in the Netherlands leading Nonica.io expansion.

 What to expect during the event

The aim of the presentation is twofold: to present the wide range of applications that visual programming tools have in BIM and to introduce to the audience the basic knowledge to start automating tasks in Autodesk Revit with Dynamo.

Firstly, the potential of visual programming (i.e Autodesk Dynamo) as automation and design tool would be broken down and introduced with selection of sample scripts (e.g clash detection, data management and parametric modelling scripts). Secondly, the user interface and the basic structure of Autodesk Dynamo will be explained; basic node functions, connectors and node library. Then, a step-by-step brief class will follow on how the audience can build their first script to export BIM model information to Microsoft Excel.

What to do when you are stuck in Dynamo, next learning steps or recommended Dynamo packages will be just a few of the tips and tricks given during the presentation. Finally, the presentation will conclude with a short explanation on how Dynamo scripts can be easily added as Revit buttons with NonicaTab free version.
