Sharing is the key. This is my primary goal typing down those words. When you know or master something, sharing makes you standing on Giants shoulders, to see further and have a better Point Of View, get things into a new perspective.
I worked hard this year on Dynamo implementation in my office, for the benefit of my colleagues and the projects they are working on it. I would say it’s been successfully. The noise around Dynamo is increasing ,as everyone following Revit related medias are evoking Dynamo and connection to it.
Mastering BIM workflows also means mastering technology. The easiest part by the way…..Dynamo is part of it, because it is not only a tool in itself, but also a way to connect technologies. Examples are legion right now on what could be achieved on this basis.
Rhynamo, Mantis Shrimp, Dynaworks, beta libraries for Robot, Slingshot, Energy Analysis…plus many anonymous ones I’m sure will pop up in the coming months. But those amazing contributions won’t help noobs understanding what could be the true benefit of using Dynamo everyday. First guess is often: “I don’t have time to PLAY with this, I have a job…” Squared Wheels mantra. See picture above.
Here I can help a little by sharing the job I’ve done for the last RTC Europe in Dublin. I had a class about Dynamo, Automating tasks. This is meant to give you samples of workflow I use, that can be implemented in each day-by-day job. Give a try, learn, and Dynamo will reward you.
Please find below the links to download my handout, presentation and dataset for this class. Nodes are now available as part of a package, SteamNodes. Share knowledge without forgetting to give credits, as a remembrance of where you’ve learn.
