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.
