How to setup Dynamo and Dynamo Player to utilize TestFit's Dynamo Package and Workflows
For our Dynamo workflows to work properly, the following packages are needed from the Dynamo Package Manager. In Dynamo, go to Packages->Search for Packages and search the names.
- Clockwork (select the proper Dynamo versions, usually 2.x) by Andreas Dieckmann aka @a_dieckmann. GitHub.
- Archi-lab.net by Konrad Sobon aka @arch_labroratory. GitHub.
- Spring Nodes by Dimitar Venkov aka @5devene. GitHub.
- JsonData by Alvaro Pickmans aka @alvpickmans. GitHub.
- Data-Shapes by Data-Shapes @datashapes_io.
- TestFit Dynamo by TestFit (make sure you have the most up to date TestFit Dynamo package, if you attempt to use an RSD from a new TestFit build with an older Dynamo package it likely won't work)
We don't expect you to open Dynamo every time you want to run a script therefore we utilize Dynamo Player to make it easier. Dynamo player can be accessed under Manage->Visual Programming->Dynamo Player in Revit. If you want to open them in normal Dynamo, that is also possible.
You'll need to point Dynamo Player to the folder where you have placed your scripts. Click the folder icon in the top left and chose the location of the scripts.
These scripts are based on Dynamo 2.6 however should work with any Dynamo version above 2.0. They have not been tested against versions lower than Dynamo 2.0. To check your version, in Dynamo go to Help->About...
Our TestFit RSD files save in Imperial (ft.) or Metric (meters). Revit defaults to feet for Imperial but defaults to millimeters for Metric. Make sure to change the units in Revit to meters if you are importing any Metric TestFit files. This menu can be found in Revit under Manage->Settings->Project Units.
