Architecture graduates arrive at firms armed with expertise in parametric tools such as Revit, Grasshopper, and Rhino; they may never have designed without the help of computers, and parametric modeling is familiar to them.
On the other hand, parametric modeling as a design synthesis method allows for the divergence of the design space in order to explore many variants of the same parametric model.

Extending parametric modeling, the developed virtual wire stent design tool was subsequently extended with an efficient design optimization algorithm (De Beule, 2008(c)).
The previous parametric modeling studies mainly focused on parametric estimation of construction costs for building and highway projects.
The underlying logic of parametric design can be instrumentalized here as an alternative design method, the one in which the geometric rigour of parametric modeling can be deployed first to integrate manufacturing constraints, assembly logics and material characteristics in the definition of simple components, and then proliferate the components into larger systems and assemblies.
Based on parametric modeling technology, Autodesk Revit 7 -- included in AutoCAD Revit Series 7 -- incorporates new features that support the creative process and deliver greater levels of productivity, including dramatic advances in conceptual design modeling.
