Dynamo Standards Discussion


#1

I need a Dynamo Standard fast. I visited VLADIMIR ONDEJCIK post… but didn’t find quite the definition I was hoping for. It seems there could have been more completeness.

Dynamo Standards


#2

The Forum is intended to help folks help themselves to better their understanding and knowledge of Dynamo. Your demand for information and criticism of what I would consider a fairly comprehensive post by @Vladimir_Ondejcik2 is not warranted, and to be honest probably isn’t going to get you any help.

Perhaps figuring out what you could provide for comment or feedback would be a good place to start.

I am sorry! Didn’t mean anything. It was just that I have people now jumping onto the Dynamo band wagon, and was getting a bit anxious.

… please accept my apology.
:pensive:

helping folks that help themselves…” This is why I’ve posted back when I have some positive progress.

I think a question what you need to ask yourself is what problems do you want to solve with a standard. At our office we collaborate a lot with people that never used dynamo before, but they need to use it in their projects. For that we use color-coding as described in my article and also we collect all variable parameters at the beginning. Further problems we address with standard are leginitily and reusability. Fot that we need a good annotation and modularization. Module is a group of nodes that perform a certain function and it has all input and output parameters redundantly placed at the beggining and end in “identity nodes” named after data they carry. I Believe this modularization is what most people that start with Dynamo skip and see it as extra unnecessary work, but i believe it has the biggest impact on legibility and helps a lot with troubleshooting when Dynamo definiton had grown bigger.
