Description

Description

The Dynamo open-source, visual-programming environment extends the parametric functionality of Revit software and Vasari software, as well as functioning as a stand-alone application. It is accessible to both programmers and non-programmers, and it has the ability to graphically script behavior, define custom function, and insert traditional text-based code. The Dynamo extension is developing at a rate that is much faster than most tools in architecture, engineering, and construction; this class will provide insight from the Development Team into recent additions and new functionality on the horizon.
