Rhino Meets Dynamo

I've had some fun with the Rhino file format in recent days.  You may remember some of the work done with the Import OpenNURBS CASE App.  To further this idea, I wanted to create a more fluid workflow with 3DM files and the world of Revit.  To achieve this, it only made sense to delve into the world of Dynamo customization and build new nodes for reading and writing the Rhino file format.

With Dynamo we can read Rhino-based information into the Revit environment... AND write Rhino files directly out of Dynamo.

These are still WIP nodes internal to CASE.  To get a sense of other stuff we have been doing with Dynamo, check out some of my workshop posts.

TEX-FAB 5 - Dynamo Workshop Results

Michael McCune and I ran a sold out show at TEX-FAB 5...

The 1.5 day workshop exposed students and professionals to a wide variety of Dynamo techniques anchored within real-word design objectives and scenarios.  The workshop introduced techniques for utilizing Dynamo for conceptual design and project development.  We also explored opportunities for interoperability with Excel and customization with Python scripting.
