As you may know, we are approaching the May 31, 2014 time out of Vasari Beta 3. Many of you have written to us to requested more time - thank you for all of your notes! Today we are announcing an extension of Beta 3 until May 31, 2015. If you already have Beta 3 installed on your system, you do not need to re-install it, you can simple update the serial number by following…Continue
So I've gone through hell and back trying to download Vasari and now that I finally have it, the only thing left is to enter the product request code.
I understand that it should show up during the activation process but it will not, I would rather not have to download it again or try to activate again.
If anyone has the product request code, please let me know what it is. Literally, what is the code?

In response to a number of questions posed to us recently, we wrote a post offering two answers for "Why should I bring Dynamo into my practice?" Here's our perspective. bit.ly/1hhUsKA …Continue

Now that we have seen the necessary setup to perform and parse a single render using the cloud rendering service in the last blog posts, we can start queuing multiple renderings of a Revit model as we alter parameters on it.
This graph and the custom nodes necessary to make this graph run will be hosted in the…Continue

I'm learning some Python programming and decided to make a geodesic dome. It's working pretty well, only that it produces a full geodesic globe. It makes an 'perfect' dome, so you get quite a lot of different strut lengths if there are many subdivisions. A next step would maybe be to approximate the triangles to reduce the amount of different strut lengths, but that sounds like a complicated process...
I'll upload it to the Dynamo packages server soon.…Continue

At RomaTre University for the third year, our research team have start a huge class, involving about 200 students!
The course aims, through the use of Vasari and BPA certificate, to "open the eyes" of the students about the world around them.
For the first exercise, we asked the students to shape their own homes and…Continue

One workflow that is a bit tricky to get started with in Dynamo is iterating on the output of a function with the same function. We could stack a chain of these nodes together ( I'm using the term function and…Continue

I want to share here posts from my blog about using Python nodes in Dynamo. This could have been achieved with a Revit API code, but it would have been less funny...

Having developed in the Revit API for several years now and hearing a lot recently about Dynamo (like at last year's AU), I thought I'd take an opportunity to dive into it. For some time I was involved in creating tutorials for users of Digital Project so I thought I would return to an example from that world.
A friend who was here at Gehry Technologies developed one example that gave users new to parametric…Continue

I understand that Vasari as a design tool is more geared towards early stages of design and therefore not to be taken too seriously however I am curious to know which calculation method is used, RANS, DES, LES etc... for the CFD type wind analysis?
Other forum posts seem to lead to the same DOE-2 calculation engine response however I believe DOE-2 is more related to the energy analysis simulations... please correct me if I am wrong.

What if we want to use our UpdateParameterAndSaveImage custom node to update a series of family instances, not just one?
I am going to show two methods for accomplishing this in dynamo. We'll first have to make a few quick changes to our custom node function. Since the idea is to set a series of family instances…

This is step one in my process of creating an iterative Daylighting analysis workflow using Dynamo and Rendering as a Service.
To execute a series of studies, we need to detect the state of the model and change the state of the model. For changing the state, one of the first functions we need to build is a mechanism for…Continue
