Dynamo 1.3 Released!

Did you see the green cloud in Dynamo today? There’s a new release available.

Visit this page for the full report.

From the readme file:

New Functionality

Core
– Geometry Working Range, a solution that adjusts numerical precision to accommodate these large numbers.
– Isolate Selected Geometry
– A direct link to the Dynamo Dictionary is added at the bottom of help menu popup window for each node. Definitions are currently available for the out-of-the-box core Dynamo nodes, and we are actively working on Revit nodes.
– Multi-output port re-connect feature using Shift+Left-Click
– Highlight geometry from selection in preview bubbles and watch nodes.
– DateTime.Format: (shout out to Radu Gidei!)

Dynamo Studio:
– Translate (CAD import) functionality now supports 3DM (Rhino) and SAT file formats, in addition to DWG and DXF. (Additionally, import of FBX, OBJ, STL, and SKP formats are supported, but there is currently limited downstream capabilities with these meshes.)

Dynamo for Revit:
– Revit allows for duplicate parameter names in a file, and Dynamo is now able to consistently pick between Named or Built-In parameters.
– Preview Bubbles enabled for Revit Selection nodes
– New Revit nodes: a number of Creation methods for System Families, added access to Global Parameters, and exposed file auditing tools with the Performance Advisor.

Bug Fixes
– Fixed line break issue in for group titles, increased group titles font size
– Convert between units now gives correct Hectares for Area conversion
– Fixed File Paths with spaces sometimes converting paths to escaped URI path
– Fixes to Arc.ByCenterPointRadiusAngle, Arc.StartAngle, and Arc.EndAngle

 

DIMENSION STANDARDS TOOLS

DIMENSION STANDARDS TOOLS

I’m bringing some more standards tools to you today. A quick copy and adjust of the original text tools graph resulted in three tools for dimension styles. The first allows the user to select a dimension type and then selects all elements in the current project that use that style. The elements are selected in Revit, so the user can use the type selector to change the type.

The second tool reports all dimension types and writes them to the chosen excel file in a worksheet named dimensions after the category chosen.

The third tool allows the user to choose a dimension type and change the elements selected by the “type” filter and change their family type to the desired type within Dynamo.

Here is a the complete screen capture of the 3 tool graph.
