Extensions Workshop Materials Now Available!

A few months ago, we held a Dynamo Extensions workshop in London at Grimshaw Architects which was attended by over 20 customers who all had an interest in extending Dynamo beyond its out of the box capabilities. During the workshop, the Dynamo team taught extension basics and worked with the attendees to help them build their first ever Dynamo exte

Working with Dynamo in Revit 2016 and Revit 2019 Simultaneously

As you may know, we recently released both Dynamo Core 2.0 and Dynamo Core 1.3.3 with Revit 2019. But, as with anything new, progress has its tradeoffs. In order to continue improving and working towards supporting more capabilities that could potentially make your work more efficient and optimized, we had to make the hard decision of letting somet

To Dynamo 2.0 and Beyond

Today is the day! After a long wait, the much anticipated Dynamo 2.0 is finally here. Dynamo 2.0 is a special and significant release for our team as it is a "major" release, but more importantly because it contains features and changes that will make desktop to web workflows possible in the future. What's so special about a "major" release?

Dynamo 1.3.3 in Revit 2019.0

Hi Dynamites! Revit 2019.0 has officially been released, and it is shipping with Dynamo 1.3.3. Dynamo 1.3.3 is also available on dynamobuilds.com as the latest stable release. No significant changes here. Some people like to control their installation process so we are making it available on our site. Two caveats: Dynamo 1.3.3 is built

Dynamo and IronPython

The Dynamo team recently became aware of some reports that python in Rhino 6 was not functioning on some machines with Dynamo installed. We've added some information to the Dynamo FAQ wiki entry, and would like to share it here as well in case you run into a similar problem. Q: How do I get Dynamo's Python functionality to work again, and use o

Extending Dynamo: A London Workshop on Extensions

Ever felt like you wanted Dynamo to do more? And, custom nodes, python, zero-touch, and nodeModel-derived UI nodes not enough? Maybe you want to create another window to track workspace utilization? Or you want to create a drawing tool inside of Dynamo? If you know the feeling, you may be interested in learning about extensions in Dynamo! On the D

AU2017: Computational Design in Practice

This year, the Dynamo Workshops at Autodesk University 2017 also included a closing session entitled “Computational Design in Practice”.    After the workshop content, all of the workshop participants came together in one room for a closing session.  We featured 5 inspiring computational design leaders will told exciting stories about

Computational BIM Workshop Materials + Datasets

Did you miss Autodesk University 2017 this year and the pre-conference Computational BIM workshops? Well, don't stress. The handouts/slides, datasets, and videos are now available and we have provided links to all of these resources at dynamobim.org/learn/#workshop For the Beginner workshops, learn the basics of node-wire diagramming in Dynamo.

Love is in the … Dynamo?

"I think engagements are an opportunity to be really creative." -My fiancee So you've found the love of your life, and you're ready to pop the question, what now? Well, if they have issued the challenge above, then you better get creating! My girlfriend posed this challenge almost a year ago, and I'm happy to say, that with the help of Dynamo

Ten Commandments for Teaching Dynamo by a Former “Evangelist”

I taught a lot of Dynamo workshops when I was the "technical evangelist" for the Dynamo team. I've learned a lot about how to teach over the years by making mistakes, getting it right sometimes, and picking up ideas from other teachers more gifted or experienced than I am. If I ever had the opportunity to share Dynamo knowledge with you, Dear Reade

Resuming pre-release builds

Dear Early Adopters, We have resumed posting pre-release builds of Dynamo on DynamoBuilds.com and on the DynamoBIM.org/download pages. These are the early stage builds that are leading to the Dynamo 2.0 release. Please keep in mind that it is early days for these builds, there are still a number of large moving pieces and, as always, this area sho

BILT Europe

BILT is an annual event, run in multiple regions around the globe, designed to cater to the needs of those who design, build, operate and maintain our built environment. As a community of professionals, it is dedicated to improving the way industry works together. We believe that: Technology is an enabler of better processes and outcomes, n

Conference: Advances in Architectural Geometry

Geometry lies at the core of the architectural design process. It is omnipresent, from the initial form-finding stages, to novel manufacturing techniques, to the construction, and to post occupancy monitoring. But the role of geometry in architecture and engineering is also continuously evolving. Geometry increasingly plays a rol
