What is Dynamo?

And after answering that Simply question (in only a way Marcello can) he gets on a roll with a few more great Dynamo posts, so seem them below or head over to Simply Complex.

The Dynamo Interface

Want to talk to the Revit API? No coding experience? no Problem. Use Dynamo!

What is a vector in Dyanmo? Its not a point

Revit Family Selection Node Names in Dynamo are a little confusing. This is what they really represent…..

I have only briefly tested (read played) with Revizto, but that was a yer or so ago, it seems to upped its…
