Design technologist Colin McCrone describes how to use the tutorial exercise files for the course. Example files include those for Autodesk Revit and Dynamo Studio.
- [Instructor] If you have access to the exercise files for this course, you can download them to your desktop. Inside you'll find a folder for each chapter. Individual files have a prefix with the chapter and video. Dynamo files end with the extension dyn, and for most videos, you'll find that they have two states, an end state and a start state. I'll start in the start state, and if you'd like to jump to the end, or check your work, you can always look at the end state. In addition, each chapter has a folder called Dynamo graph images inside.
Here you can see saved images of the final Dynamo graph in case you'd like to look ahead. Chapters two and three share a common Revit base file, and you can find that in those folders, as well. In addition, the exercise files for Dynamo rely on four different packages, which are available through the Dynamo package manager. You can find them under packages, and then search for a package. These are clockwork version 1.x, ampersand, lunchbox for Dynamo, and quads from rectangular grid.
There's a fifth package, spring nodes. If you don't have access to the exercise files, that's okay, I encourage you to still follow along as we go through the course. Now let's get started.
