  1. Handle Variable Input List Length Nesting In Custom Dynamo Nodes

    Some custom Dynamo nodes need to handle inputs and outputs of variable nesting length. In python this can be done using var[]..[], but how to do it in C#? …


  2. Unity And Git

    Version control in Unity can be done using specific solutions for game engines as Perforce and Plastic SMC. But in case you’d rather use a more traditional approach, with Git, here below I’m sharing two gists that can be useful. …


  3. Elapsed Time In Dynamo

    Today I came up with a Dynamo workflow to calculate the execution time of a series of nodes, it doesn’t need any dependency, but beware as it’s not sexy at all: …


  4. Hello Dynamo

    Dynamo is a really powerful tool, and it becomes even more powerful when extended through custom nodes.

    It may happen that you are working on a Visual Studio project that was initially set up for Windows Forms, and now you want to insert some cool WPF controls, but these won’t show up when clicking the “Add…” button. …

    In WPF, the ProgressBar control is a great control for showing the progress of an operation. If you have already used it in a non Revit context, you probably know that in order to update the UI during a lengthy task you need to have this logic on a different thread than the main one. …
