If you have access to the exercise files, you can use them to follow along throughout this course. You'll find each chapter's exercise files within a folder named after the number of the chapter. Files whose name ends with the word start will match the Dynamo file at the start of the video, and files whose name ends with end will reflect the file at the end of the video. If you don’t have access to the exercise files you can follow along from scratch or use your own files.
- [Instructor] If you have access to the exercise files for this course, you can download them to your Documents folder, as I've done here. You'll find all the files that we'll work on during the course in this folder named Exercise Files and they're named in number according to the chapter that we'll use them in. When a video has an exercise file, the name of the corresponding exercise file will display within the first few seconds of the video. Files whose names end with the word begin should match what you see on screen at the beginning of the video. And files whose names and with the word end will reflect the state of the graph at the end of the video.
All of the Dynamo examples will run on the Revit file called sample project, that ships with the course. You'll find these in the folder named Revit. I've included a few versions of the Revit file. Choose the one who's here matches your version of Revit. Keep in mind that when you launch Dynamo from the Revit toolbar, Dynamo is going to look at and interact with whichever Revit file is open and active. So if you're going to follow along these the exercise files, go ahead and open up your Revit file now. If you don't have access to the exercise files, that's okay.
I'll build up each of the Dynamo course files and Excel files from scratch, so you can follow along and run these examples on your own Revit project. Alright, that's all the housekeeping we needed to get out of the way. Let's fire up Revit and get started in Dynamo.
