In this video, learn about the Data.Remember node which is used to cache Revit data. Caching Revit data is crucial in retaining information within your Dynamo graphs for later use.
- [Instructor] During a Generative Design study, … Dynamo has to run the same graph many times … to generate different options. … If it needs to access Revit elements with each run, … the computations that are required can be quite heavy. … The Data.Remember node assists with this … by storing data for later use. … So let's take a closer look at it in this lesson. … I currently have the Revit exercise file … open to this lesson, … which simply has a wall in it. … We'll use this wall to test the remember node, … so let's go ahead and open up a new Dynamo script. … The Data.Remember node is found … within the Generative Design section, … and then data, and here's this remember node. … This node can be used to store data … by storing the information within the Dynamo file. … This is however limited to texts, numbers, … and geometric data such as solids, points, and surfaces. … So let's use it to store information … about the wall in Revit. … We can do this by using … the select wall element node in Dynamo. …
