If you only use Dynamo to run the programs you write on a single element at a time, Dynamo's strength in automating repetitive tasks is put to waste. This video covers the basics of creating and managing lists to make sure that your scripts are capable of carrying out the same task on several inputs, not just one.
- [Instructor] It's fairly common when you're working…with Dynamo to be faced with the task…of handling lists of information.…The first few times that you see information…organized this way, it can seem a little bit daunting.…But, in fact, you've probably already worked with lists…of data without even knowing it.…When you're working with Revit, or AutoCAD,…or any other CAD software, if you've ever selected…more than one object or element…and changed something about them all at the same time,…maybe you moved them to a different location,…or deleted them or changed one of their properties,…then you already have some experience working with lists.…
Of course, working with Dynamo lists is a little bit…different from selecting multiple objects…in Revit or Autocad.…Understanding how to manage information that's organized…this way is a very important hurdle to get over…if you're going to get Dynamo to do powerful work for you.…Let's go over some of the most common techniques…to manage data that's arranged in lists.…
