I was trying to make a custom node that creates a Fibonacci spiral through recursion.
After struggling for a while (being fairly new to Dynamo) I was able to make the recursive node work as per my satisfaction and saved the node for later use. But when I restarted Dynamo the next time and tried to run the graph again with the same node, it returned nothing (not even a null value nor an empty list). It was simply broken.
I double clicked the custom node to edit it and found that the recursive node is completely disconnected from the graph. Now when I try to reconnect the nodes or edit almost anything, Dynamo crashes!
As a workaround, I tried the following method that seemed to work after a few hit and trials →
- Removed the recursive node from the custom node to avoid Dynamo from crashing
- Removed all the inputs
- Called the recursive node again (which does not have any inputs now)
- Inserted all the inputs again (which gets reflected in the recursive node in real time)
- Reconnected all the nodes for execution of the Dynamo graph.
Now this method does work while I’m working in the same graph, but the issue keeps reoccurring whenever I restart Dynamo and this workaround is a bit of a hassle every time.
I might be missing something, but does anybody know how to avoid the recursive node from disconnecting in the custom node? And more importantly, how to prevent Dynamo from crashing when I edit the custom node without deleting the recursive node first?
Thanks in advance,
