Does anyone know of a Dynamo script that can calculate the embodied carbon of materials?


I am currently preparing for a research paper on how we can use dynamo to calculate initial stage design embodied carbon totals.

I am wondering if anyone is aware on a script that would assist in this, allowing me to insert embodied carbon data within?

You could use HBERT although its a Revit addin-in…however its also open source so you could easily repurpose it to create a custom node and import it via zero touch:



I was unaware of this plug-in. I will certainly have a look at it!

Apparently, there will be an Autodesk University presentation on this exact topic on Nov.18th. Not sure if that fits within your time constraints, but it may be worth sitting in for (or maybe reach out to the presenter?)
