Revit 2017.1 Dynamo player


#1

Hey Guys,

Just thought I’d share this with you: I saw a new update available for Revit 2017: Revit 2017.1 and it comes with a new Dynamo Player button on the ribbon. Looks very interesting, I’m installing as we speak and gonna try it out.

Hehe, that’s the same site I got the link to the youtube clip from :slight_smile:
I did a little testrun with the Dynamo Player, it does what it promises: running your scripts as they are. For someone who hadn’t dived into Dyno yet this is pretty useful.

Thank You for sharing!!!


#6

possibility for any user inputs here?


#7

Nope, it’s just running the graph as is.


#8

Thys dynamo player would be a improve speed in charge geometry create with dynamo?Or is just something that can charge a dynamo definition in a easy way?


#9

I don’t think the graph will run any faster. The startup time is a lot faster though as you don’t have to start Dynamo and open the definition.


#10

Awesome…for running scripts where no manual selection is required.
Just used this with a script where two splines are supposed to be selected and now it hangs :wink:
Nevertheless…awesome piece of additional functionality to Dynamo / Revit.


#11

Any chance we will get that player for 2016 as well?


#12

with nodes that use the pickobject(s) method, you can perform your element selection even when playing the script through dynamo player . Here’s an example with rhythm’s “pick model elements” :


Select Elements on Screen - Fill out Parameter
Dyno Browser - Cannot use the select element

Looks really Interesting


#14

Did you see @Mostafa_El_Ayoubi comment? pickobjects can still work with Dynamo Player :slight_smile:


#15

Haha! Nice find! Yes, the Revit team is looking at input methods, but starting simple. Really interesting to see this discovery.


#16

@Mostafa_El_Ayoubi nice find!!


#17

Nice find! even if it seems that the script took a “long” time to load. Is that because it prepares an input? or is it just dynamo loading in the backgroud?


#18

It runs much faster when I’m not recording a gif :slight_smile:


#19

Haha of course, sorry I didn’t think about that. Still have to try the player btw


#20

Any chance it could read a master folder structure? So we can keep routines organized?
