I am creating company standards for Dynamo including the dyn file names.
The name should be easy to follow so that any user can understand what they are used for without guessing.
Does anyone have any standards or tips about this approach or what works best for your group?
One user at my company created this system for naming Grasshopper files which is a starting point. I think it has merit but could use some trimming
(Authoring Platform)-(Category Combination)-(Description #1)-(Description #2)-(Revit Version)-(Dynamo Version)-(Script Version#)
Example Grasshopper File Name:
GH - GE - Exterior Louvers - Solar Radiation Reduction - v.6-0.5.1.1.B.gh
Breakdown of the name sections:
Grasshopper = GH
Dynamo = Dyn
Geometric = G
Data = D
Environmental = E
Production = P
Description #1 Examples:
- Functional Description
Description #2 Example:
- Additional Description
- Primary plugin used
There’s also a part for script version which is at the end as ’ v.6-0.5.1.1.B.gh’ but that’s less important for the user than the developer.
