I’ve been experimenting and exploring the use of Dynamo in Conceptual design. My attempt has been to utilize dynamo (design script)in the early design stages without any complicated math. With no preconceived result in mind, abstract design intent finds expression in lines of code.
I have used this approach in submitting three design competition entries in the recent past. The zoning/floor layouts (spatial planning) was to a large extent generated with code on Dynamo. This is obviously me just scratching the surface of the endless possibilities. I haven’t even looked at anything technical yet.

About 90% of the design process is Dynamo script based. I use Revit only towards the end.
The scripting part of Dynamo has so consumed me that I haven’t felt the need to try out any other software recently. It’s just Dynamo and Revit. Mostly Dynamo.
I am so excited by the potential that this offers that everything else has taken a back seat.
Mine is a single person design oriented practice and I’d like not to be forced into generating income to maintain a licence(s).
