#DynamoBIM 0.8.2 is awesome

 

Yesterday I downloaded the brand new, hot off the press Dynamo version 0.8.2!

Once again the team has managed to pump all kinds of great content into the newest release. Here are a few of my favorites.

NODE2CODE

This new feature enables us to converts our nodes in our graph to design script code with two clicks. (Right click> node2code) It’s super robust too, check it out below on my Percent Glazing by Orientation node!

Node2Code

Manage Nodes and Package Paths (Localized Packages)

This is a huge addition. Not only can we keep proprietary content inside our network we can now “deploy” needed packages to all of our users.

I see the deploy option being a huge benefit in itself because I believe sharing is what makes this community so awesome.

That being said, my office now has an internal package for some workflows that I don’t see being useful to everyone. Now Rhythm has some Rhyme as well :)

In canvas search (an oldie but goodie)

The release notes say in canvas search was added, but it was in 0.8.1? Either way it is still as amazing as it was before!

That’s it for now. Currently I have a few things I am working on to share very soon. Until then, everyone go download the new version of Dynamo and have fun!
