What is Dynamo & How Does It Work?

Dynamo is a visual programming application that can be downloaded and run in either stand-alone "Sandbox" mode or as a plug-in for other software like Revit, FormIt or Civil 3D.

The Process

Dynamo enables us to work within a Visual Programming process wherein we connect elements together to define the relationships and the sequences of actions that compose custom algorithms. We can use our algorithms for a wide array of applications, from processing data to generating geometry, all in real-time and without writing a lick of code.

Connecting Nodes and Wires

Nodes and Wires are the key components in Dynamo to support a visual programming process. It help establish strong visual and systemic relationships between the parts of a design. Using simple mouse-click to connect the Nodes easily while developing and optimizing your design workflow.

What can Dynamo Achieve?

From using Visual Programming for project workflows to developing customized tools, Dynamo is an integral aspect of a wide variety of exciting applications.
