[UPDATE August 3, 2017] Version 0.3.1 is now available!
In addition to some minor bug fixes and improvement, the biggest change in version 0.3.1 is that preview geometries are now rendered more efficiently. We no longer needs to rely on Periodic update mode as in the previous version. This allows for a more responsive display and manipulation, especially in scenarios with high numbers of nodes.
DynaShape is a Dynamo package for constraint-based form finding,optimization and physics simulation.
If you are also from the Grasshopper community and familiar with Daniel Piker’s Kangaroo, you will find many similar concepts and usages with DynaShape.
The package is currently under development and hence inevitably contains bugs/glitches. Feedbacks are highly appreciated!
- Dynamo Studio or Dynamo Revit, version 1.3 or newer
- MeshToolkit package (which can be found and installed using the package manager). It does NOT matter whether you install MeshToolkit before OR after DynaShape
The simplest way is to use the installer in the link below. (This also includes a manual setup package with instructions, in case the installer does not work on your computer)
WARNING: Do NOT search for and download DynaShape from the package manager inside Dynamo. That is an early testing version and will not work at all!

The complete source code is available on GitHub
@john_pierson (Twitter @60secondrevit) made a quick video on how to build the package from the source code
(many thanks to him )
