Last week, I decided to see how far I could push Python nodes in Dynamo in terms of files external of Revit and I believe I have discovered a vulnerability in which an attacker can use a Python node within a Dynamo graph to gain access to your desktop. There have been some similar discussions … Continue reading Dynamo’s Security Vulnerability
This workflow was created as a request from @PhilosophyBIM on Twitter To @DynamoBIM guru, any way to automate the phase mapping to revit elements? I have a linked model binded to another file & lost all Phases. — Philip Chan (@PhilosophyBIM) September 26, 2017 The issue arises when binding a linked model in Revit. If … Continue reading Use Dynamo to Transfer Phase Data to Bound Revit Models
Here is a graph that I’ve thrown together that pushes the Revit Space number into the COBie parameter “COBie.Component.Space” for elements that are within the Space, including elements above the ceiling. Note that in order for this to include the elements in the area above ceilings (i.e., mechanical and electrical equipment), your spaces must use … Continue reading Dynamo Graph to push Space data into COBie.Component.Space including elements above the ceiling (MEP)
To supplement the BIMxHTML Dynamo package, I published a second package called BIMxDB. This package will contain several custom nodes for exporting Revit data to different types of databases. For now, my focus is SQLite and the current node that is in the package is Export.SQLite.ParameterData.TimeStamped. This custom node creates a table in the SQLite … Continue reading BIMxDB v0.0.2 Published – Store Revit Data in SQLite Database
It looks like there has been some interest in the BIMxHTML Dynamo package and its encouraged me to develop some custom nodes to simplify the display of Google Charts using pure Dynamo. The Custom Nodes Download the sample files below to get a good example of how to use these nodes. Essentially, they output an … Continue reading BIMxHTML v0.0.8 – More Custom Nodes to Generate Google Charts
All of the excitement revolving around generating dashboards using Power BI made me wonder: Can we leverage Dynamo to create web pages that display data directly from a Revit model? The goal would be to create a powerful, free alternative to generating web-based content using simple HTML code. Needless to say, the gears have been … Continue reading BIMxHTML – A Dynamo Package to Generate Web Pages
In learning every new programming language, it is customary to start with a “Hello world!” application. Although visual, Dynamo is a scripting tool as well, so I thought this would be a great first step for folks who are new to Dynamo. In this post, we demonstrate how to display “Hello world!” in the Revit … Continue reading Hello Dynamo World!
Rather than hosting a Dynamo training session in the greater Seattle area, we decided to organize and sponsor the Seattle Dynamo User Group Meetup! The meetup group was only formed on February 1, 2017 and we already have 17 members. We will schedule the first meetup as soon as we have speaker and a venue … Continue reading Seattle Dynamo User Group
Tonight (yes, I am working on a Friday night), I ran into a new issue that I thought the community might be interested in. I linked an IFC into Revit which was exported from AutoCAD MEP. The issue is, I could not see any of the duct. Autodesk posted a solution to the problem that unfortunately … Continue reading Linked Mechanical IFC Model Into Revit; Can’t See Ductwork
Looking for the Air Terminal category in your Categories node Dynamo? You won’t find it. It’s called DuctTerminals in Dynamo. That is all.
