Noob Questions


Just recently downloaded dynamo. Can i only open it through Revit? I can’t open it through the normal windows start menu like i would any other software.

Also, I did some programming in college, but I’m definitely extremely rusty. Should i be looking into learning Python or C#?

Thank you!

You can open it via a shortcut, but it does not show up in the start menu. The exe you want to find varies by Dynamo version. Go to “C:\Program Files\Dynamo\Dynamo Core\2\DynamoSandbox.exe” for 2.0, or “C:\Program Files\Dynamo\Dynamo Core\2\DynamoSandbox.exe” for 1.3. Other versions are located at similar paths.

Look into Dynamo first. Then decide what you want to learn for more advanced options. Start with the primer:

Don’t skip anything, even if you think you’d never need a tool that does that. The concepts covered are key, not the results.

Thanks man!
