A major advantage to using Dynamo is the ability to process multiple calculations at the same time, which requires users to know how to construct a list of data. In this video, learn how to construct a list one item at a time using the List.Create node.
- [Instructor] Another powerful aspect of using Dynamo…is the ability to process more than one piece…of information at a time.…In the next couple of videos we'll look at a few examples…of how lists of numbers are created…and how some nodes behave when they're fed a list of numbers…rather than just one single input at a time.…First, let's begin with a very common node…for creating lists of any kind, called List Create.…We can find List Create in the List Generate section…of the node Library.…Looking at this node, it appears to only have one input…called item0, but this node is unlike any node…that we've seen so far, in that it has a plus…and a minus button.…
These buttons let us set the number of inputs…that the node takes.…If I hit the plus button a couple of times…you can see that it creates new inputs…on the left hand side.…And if I hit the minus button,…it reduces that number of inputs.…Let's use this node to create a list of three numbers.…I'll click the plus button one more time…to create a total of three inputs on the left hand side…
