Dynamo Essentials

Dynamo is a visual scripting environment for automating Revit tasks. It is an “open source” platform, and ships with your Revit licence. Any serious Revit user wanting to achieve easy productivity gains can benefit from this workshop. Dynamo reads and writes back data to and from the Revit database via the Revit API. The data could be just about anything – parameter values, family geometry, family placement. The possibilities are endless. This Dynamo Essentials course is multi-disciplinary, suitable for Revit users working in architecture, building services, structural engineering.

Course content for Dynamo Essentials:

  • Get started with Dynamo
  • Understand and work with the Dynamo user interface
  • Understand the anatomy of a definition
  • What is a list in Dynamo? What is a nested list?
  • Rather than writing code, drag and drop “nodes” onto your Dynamo canvas
  • Connect your nodes with “wires” to create your program visually
  • Take advantage of the Dynamo Library – Revit time savers that are free and ready for you to use
  • Understand and use packages
  • Understand data types
  • Understand lists
  • Use code blocks
  • Use layout and groups

  • Push data from Dynamo or external sources into Revit elements
  • Use Dynamo to manage and maintain object data
  • Use Dynamo to improve 3D modelling geometry
  • Make Dynamo more accessible in your day-to-day workflows
