Hi Dynamo users,
How are you lately! Are you a regular Dynamo Sandbox user or pioneer? Time to share some thoughts!
Our team is reconsidering how many versions of Autodesk products Dynamo Sandbox should support moving forward. For example, the latest stable Dynamo Sandbox 2.8.0 can be used stand alone but the out of box geometry nodes currently support the cases when Revit 2021, Revit 2020, Revit 2019 are installed locally ( same years for AutoCAD verticals and other Autodesk products). If a user only have Revit 2018 installed locally, he or she will not be able to use the geometry nodes while all other functionalities remain the same. In history, in fall season every year our team will drop a single Revit version and add one version of support back. For example, Dynamo 2.9.0 may support Revit 2022 preview release but drop Revit 2019 support.
However, supporting geometry library across many product versions does not come for free. That is why our team are re-evaluating how useful this past pattern is for you and your fellow workers so our team could plan for the best. Depending on your feedback, we may consider reducing the versions Sandbox will be supporting in order to make room for other Dynamo projects and bug fixes. Please share your votes and if you prefer, tell us about your workflow and why you support certain number of versions for Sandbox to support. If preferred, you may also propose when you prefer to see such change.
- Single Autodesk product version support (e.g. latest Sandbox only support latest Revit preview release)
- Two Autodesk product versions support (e.g. latest Sandbox only support latest Revit preview release and stable release)
- Three Autodesk product versions support (e.g. no change to current behavior. latest Sandbox support latest Revit preview release, stable releases for two years)
