In case you were curious...

Hello Dynamites! :wave:

We are super excited to introduce to you a series of Dynamo Challenges meant to inspire, to push boundaries, to explore lateral solutions and to grow your knowledge of Dynamo.

01 - DYNAMO LOGO CHALLENGE:
Are you into logos? Is design your thing? Did you ever want to redesign the Dynamo logo? Well now is your chance!

Come have a go at redesigning the Dynamo logo, letting your creativity run wild, imaging what could be and the world of a newer, bolder, brighter and fresher way to represent Dynamo! This challenge is mean to be fun, funny and a little wild. So take it to funky places! You can evolve what is, keep the spirit of the logo, or take it to unchartered territory and go totally left field.

Note: There are no promises made with this challenge, it is simply for fun. We are not current planning on redesigning the Dynamo logo, nor will the winner have their logo put into circulation as part of Dynamo. But there are kudo’s involved!

This challenge will run for almost two weeks, starting on Monday 25th July at 9am EST, running until Thursday 4th August at 5pm EST.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS:

  1. Dynamo must be used in or part of your submission. :bar_chart:
  2. If you use a Dynamo graph, your .DYN file must be attached to your submission. :truck:
  3. If you use a Custom Package or Node in your submission, it must be hosted on Package Manager. Note: This may mean uploading a package! :package:
  4. This topic will be left open for discussion - use to your hearts content! Upon deadline of challenge, moderators will edit the post to introduce a community poll to select winners. :speech_balloon:
  5. We very much encourage wrong answers! Have fun with it. :hand_with_index_finger_and_thumb_crossed:

It’s not for me to say, but let’s include the version number in the logo for extra points

Perhaps the integration too? :thinking:

Yes, like Dynamo for Revit 20…

@john_pierson ,

Even the current logo … in dynamo is time-consuming… any ideas for comprehensions?

You missed a bit!

yes, there is also a switch between 180 and -180, for creating arcs! later i want to extrude them, it means i need closed loops and overlapping lines @Alien

A little bit of list management makes your graphs so much easier to read and maintain.

I think I would lean towards making the connector thingy a custom node and using that to draw custom words.

(NOTE. I mocked this up really quickly, so it barely works. lol)

My 2 cents version for basic setout.

Friendly reminder that posts placed in this thread are not entries, and that I am not eligible as I’m administrating things with Sol.

I can confirm that it is possible to build the official logo in Dynamo 2.13 and up using 21 nodes with no complex definitions, code blocks, python, or custom nodes of any sort. In this case I added a splash of color as well putting the node count at 23 (one of those is somewhat more complex design script as it reuses variables).

Design Scripted Dynamo Logo

p = Point.ByCoordinates([0,0,8,8],[0,11,9,2]);
a = List.Flatten([p[0..3],p[0],p[1]],-1);
b = List.Flatten([p[1..3],p[0],p[2],p[3]],-1);
t = 4.1;
l = Line.ByStartPointEndPoint(a,b).ExtendStart(t/2).ExtendEnd(t/2);
c = Solid.ByUnion(Circle.ByCenterPointRadius(p,t/5).ExtrudeAsSolid(Vector.ZAxis(),1));
s = PolyCurve.ByThickeningCurveNormal(l,t,Vector.ZAxis()).Fillet(t/2.05,true).Fillet(t/2.05,false).Patch().SubtractFrom(c);
d = GeometryColor.ByGeometryColor(List.Flatten(s,-1).Translate(Vector.ZAxis(),0..0.01..#6),Color.ByARGB([255,255,255,255,100,100],[163,113,52,98,61,108],[54,76,150,138,83,57],[47,119,163,92,99,55]));
