Dynamo tethers itself to the current Revit document. Always open Revit first, then launch Dynamo and open a graph. When switching files, it is best to do this in reverse; close Dynamo, then Revit. You can set graphs to run automatically or manually.
- [Instructor] Before we continue with our graph…I just want to talk about a few basic concepts…about file management and file execution in Dynamo.…This is really more for those of you that are new to Dynamo.…If you've already been using Dynamo,…then you could easily skip this video.…I left my screen in exactly the same state that it was in…at the previous video.…What I want to talk about first is,…I mentioned that you should always launch Revit first,…open a file, either a family or a project file,…and then launch Dynamo,…and it will tether itself to that current document.…
That's really important…because of the way that Dynamo interacts with Revit.…If you open multiple Revit files it can confuse Dynamo…as to which file is actually associated with the graph,…and you might get error messages right here.…It says, "Run completed" for me,…but that's where the errors would appear…if you open up multiple files.…It might say something like Dynamo's not pointing…to the current document, or something along those lines.…
