Hello Civil 3D Dynamo users,
Civil 3D 2022 was released today, so I’m starting this thread for discussion of what has changed with Dynamo in the new version. Here’s are some of my notes so far, but let’s keep adding to this.
Dynamo Core 2.10.1
A big upgrade is that Civil 3D Dynamo is now on version 2.10.1, which means that us Civil 3D users can take advantage of all the latest features of Dynamo Core (Python 3 support, documentation browser, etc.)
No New Nodes…Yet
I was hoping to see some new nodes (maybe rolling in some from the Civil 3D Toolkit??) but I don’t see any differences. It is mentioned as a ‘Planned’ item in the public roadmap, so perhaps there will be a separate update in the future like there was with Civil 3D 2020.
Improved 3D Background Preview Navigation
Those of us in civil engineering are probably very accustomed to working in very large coordinates. This was frustrating at times because the background 3D preview in Dynamo would not perform well with objects far away from the origin:
It looks like the performance is better now!
I think this was probably fixed awhile ago with the Helix updates in Dynamo Core 2.7, but it’s nice that we can take advantage of it now.
Dynamo Player Still Has Bugs
There have been a lot of posts about how trace data is handled with the Civil 3D implementation of Dynamo, especially when using Dynamo Player. In a few of my quick tests it doesn’t look like anything has changed. Perhaps this will also come in a separate update.
