Inputs are essential for all generative design processes to enable them to generate different options. In this video, learn how inputs can be added to your Dynamo scripts for use in Revit.
- [Instructor] Let's start … the typical generative design workflow … with the input section. … This is where we collect all of the inputs from the user … and data from Revit, which is required … to execute the graph. … The inputs are also variables … that allow the generative design algorithm … to generate new results … by adjusting the input sliders. … I currently have the Revit and Dynamo exercise files open … for this lesson. … In the Revit file, I've created two walls. … One wall with windows and one without. … We'll use the blank wall … to optimize the placement of windows … and we'll use these windows placed in the other wall … as the selection windows that can be placed. … So they're currently placed here in the view … so that we can easily collect them in Dynamo. … Each window has several types. … So while we're only using three different window types, … each one has several widths that can be placed, … which means there'll be many options … for the generative design algorithm …
