Dynamo update, will discontinue previous .dyn files

#1

I just noticed that new Dynamo update is available.
Here is a screenshot of my current Dynamo version (2.0.2.0):

If I update, will it somehow affect the previous .dyn files?
Or was this an issue only with the switch from Dynamo 1.x to 2.x?

Thank you for the reply.

Few days ago I would have said no… but I am not that sure anymore…

I have got a raising number of errors coming in based on this issue


#3

As with Eric, I have seen some issues associated to .dyf files. Technically the dyns are ok, but if the wheels fall off the car doesn’t run so well.

Thank you, both @erfajo and @JacobSmall
I never created any .dyf files, and seems like the upper linked topic is related with updates from Dynamo 1.x to 2.x? Or did I misunderstand that?


#5

It’s 2.0.x to 2.0.z updates as well. It’s specific to people who make the custom nodes which increase the efficiency and effectiveness of Dynamo, so while it may not impact you from a ‘we don’t make our own custom nodes’ it would impact you if you use Orchid and a few other key packages.


#6

It is only updates internally in Dynamo 2.0.x, there is no problems with migration from 1.3.x to 2.0.x… at least not to my knowledge.

But it has as @JacobSmall says a huge impact om my work. I cannot optimize how my package is organized until this issue is solved, unless it will have an impact on the users. Since I didn’t know that before recently, I have moved nodes around and renamed nodes… those 20+ nodes are now a problem for an increasing number of users :-S

Only way for now is to replace these “not found” nodes with a similar node if they want to reuse their graphs.

Thank you again @JacobSmall, @erfajo.
These .dyf files can contain both design script and python custom nodes?


#8

those nodes have not changed name or location as far as i know, but to get the right answer to this you need to ask the dynamo team at DynamoDS github.


#9

I’m not sure I understand your question, but .dyf file can contain anything a .dyn file can…


#10

I see. So it is essentially a .dyn file saved in a single node, so to say?


#11

That’s one way to think of it, yes.

Review the primer as there are good examples there.

Thank you for the help Jacob!
