On the tenth day of CADD Care, the CADD team gave to me… A Better Dynamo Player!
With Revit 2023 a new version of Dynamo Player was released with MANY needed improvements. Some of those key improvements include storing multiple folder locations, searching, script information, and sorting inputs and outputs.
The main window now provides the ability to store multiple folder locations and easily switch between them with a simple dropdown menu. Additionally, it lets you search the folder for a specific script.
The script information window also got a major update. It now displays a new Description, Author, and URL field that can be configured within the script. This allows for providing a link to a tutorial or any other supporting documentation for the script. It also now defaults to sorting the inputs and outputs alphabetically, but there is the option to set it back to order of creation. But why go back! Update the naming of your nodes to include numbers to make sure they sort correctly. No more recreating inputs at the end of the script creation just to make sure they are in the correct order for Dynamo Player.
Check back the rest of this week and next week to see what the CADD team has in store for all Twelve Days of CADD Care!
