FLUX.IO – Moving to the cloud
Early this year, I was invited with some colleagues to San Francisco to test a new technology called FLUX.IO. The idea behind flux is quite smart: You design a building using parametric tools and coding, like Grasshopper, Dynamo or GenerativeComponents. Instead to save your model and “code” in your hard drive you do it in a server. The good stuff is that the whole calculation is made by a server instead of your computer. In theory you could manage big volumes of data without worrying about your laptop-tablet ram capacities. The other advantage is to work remotely with your mates. Since the model is in the cloud, all team members can tackle the same model at the same time, from different locations. Currently Flux is more oriented into resolve interoperability problems with GH-Revit-Excel-Dynamo-Flux. Send and receive data from all flavors.
