This is how to create a half-tone image using Autodesk Dynamo and Revit for laser-cutting. Dynamo is an open source graphic programming plugin for Revit and Vasari.

You can get a copy of Dynamo at http://dynamobim.org/ ( I suggest downloading the latest daily build) and get a free trial of Revit at http://www.autodesk.com/products/autodesk-revit-fa...

Disclaimer: Dynamo is a new and constantly evolving software development. If for any reason these files or instructions no longer work, or if you have any questions, please direct them to the forums at http://dynamobim.org/forums/forum/dyn/

Step 1: Opening Revit and Dynamo

Begin by starting Revit. Click "New Conceptual Mass" and open the file "mass.rft".

Within Revit, click on the Add-ins tab and click Dynamo 0.7 to open Dynamo.

<p>This is pretty neat! Thanks so much for sharing!</p>
<p>Very nice. have you seen this? <br>http://rasterbator.net</p>
<p>Interesting. You could use this to make any size image. Either use photoshop to crop an image into separate square frames, or use one hi-res image and separate your vector image into frames in illustrator. Then just scale the frames to fit your printer or laser cutter format. Give it a try!</p>
<p>cool perfect for my new room :D</p>
<p>Thanks! I hope it works well for you.</p>
