How to Control 9,298,091,736 Design Options in Project Fractal

Has this ever happened to you?  You make a Dynamo graph, save it to the web and look at it on Fractal, but generating options seems to never finish.  This could be because you’re trying to create 9,298,091,736 designs! We’ve now added some controls to help with this problem right in the Fractal interface. There is a …

Facade Design with Energy Analysis in Project Fractal

One of the examples the Fractal team has shown is the facade energy analysis video, where we have one output of the Dynamo graph predicting the energy use of the building by evaluating factors such as building orientation (an assumption is made), window-to-wall ratio, and the surface area of shading devices: We arrived at these …

Project Fractal goes to Europe

Written by Anthony Hauck For the last 8 months, the Project Fractal team has been preparing for the European Revit Technology Conference (RTC) in Porto, Portugal, readying the class “Generative Design with Project Fractal” for which we signed up last year. At the time we proposed the class, truth be told, we had a lot more …

Project Fractal Massing, FAR, FormIt and Parking

A few interesting things that customers have been up to with the Project Fractal Alpha. First up, Shepley Bulfinch: Kyle is also the guiding hand of Dynamo-litia, the Boston Dynamo User group. Also, some interesting work from Mike Engel at ESG Architects. Mike evidently figured out that a downloaded design option in STL format opens up nicely in Autodesk FormIt, taking …

Project Fractal and Space Planning at Perkins + Will

Since we started the Project Fractal Alpha we’ve seen some great work from customers testing Project Fractal itself as well as some of the example workflows we’ve been exploring. As mentioned in earlier posts, we’ve been working since January with Perkins + Will’s Atlanta office on a Dynamo graph called the Space Plan Generator (SPG), …

Announcing Project Fractal

As you might have guessed, we’ve been pretty busy over the last couple of months with Project Fractal development and attending the industry events that tend to congregate in the calendar just before summer holidays, not that it’s stopping RTC North America, where some of us will be in July,. So, let’s have a catch …

Dynamo Fractals

Dynamo lends itself to the creation of fractals (and other recursive geometry) thanks to the recursive capacities of Custom Nodes: I wrote an in-depth tutorial on the subject over here: http://steellworks.blogspot.com/2013/08/dynamo-fractals.html

Autodesk Dynamo Studio’s “Customizer” functionality is coming to a close in 2019

Autodesk Dynamo Studio’s “Send to Web”, “Manage Web Workspaces”, and Customizer functionality will be discontinued in 2019. The team at Autodesk is making changes to simplify our portfolio and workflows for people who make Dynamo scripts. As a result, we will be consolidating some of our web services that use Dynamo functionality. Please note, this does NOT …

Introducing Project Refinery

We have learned a great deal from Project Fractal. Initially released in July 2016, there are over 3500 people who have tried their hand at coding their design logic in Dynamo and automating design option creation with Fractal.  Today we are announcing that Project Fractal has evolved into a new beta project called Project Refinery.  Project Refinery not …
