Off the back of RTC Europe and Autodesk University, I’ve started learning more about Dynamo definitions which I’ve tinkered with in the past. I’m particularly interested in the development of it in everybody use. I can see it having a lot of good application in interoperability workflows between platforms, such as Revit and Navisworks, for IFC interfacing and for data management.
I’ve being working on a definition that takes BS1192 (UK British Standard) containers and concatenates them together into a single string. Simple enough. I blogged about my efforts here, https://bimimplementation.wordpress.com/ if you are interested. It explains the project in a bit more content. My good friend, David Wood, a fellow MRUG committee member, whom I’m sure many of you know then refined the definition which I also posted on the same blog.
So my question: With efforts like this is that its very difficult to distribute them. Well at least I think it is. Does anybody know a way of compiling a Dynamo definition to Python code to run as a macro in Revit, or even VB to run as an API app? I suspect the later is not possible, however I assume from the packages that Dynamo is essentially written in Python code, so shouldn’t we be able able to see the “source” behind the definition?
I appreciate any help.
