I have a script that creates beams along the curves of a mass surface. However, after I close dynamo and rerun the script , instead of updating the previously created members, it simply creates a new set. the script currently ends with the StructuralFraming.Beambycurve node. so I was suspecting since there was no container to hold the output of that node the script will forget next time it reopens. Does anyone know why this happens?
However, one thing I noticed is I have beam systems that reference these beams and when i delete the previously generated beams that the system refers to and run the script to create a new set, the systems then refers to the new beams. Anyone have any idea why this happens? using this method to replace the disconnected beams with elements that the script updates has been an acceptable workaround, but would like to know more for future reference.
