It has been a while since we did a new official release, and we have plenty of new toys for everyone to use. The first bag of tricks is Dynamo 0.6.3, an incremental improvement to the 0.6.2 tools you know and love. There are, of course, a number of stability improvements, new nodes, access to more Revit functionalities and a richer computation
I bought an iPad recently, and I started playing around with Autodesk's new, free conceptual modeling program, FormIt. I first saw FormIt on the iPad about a year ago, and while I am really impressed with the ability to model 3D geometry through a touch-only interface—it's also really fun—I never owned an iPad before two weeks ago, and I f
Dynamo 0.6.3 now includes units—lengths, areas, and volumes—in addition to the more traditional, naked numbers. Here's what you need to know.

Earlier this year, an artist's new model for a door became wildly popular on social media outlets like Twitter and Facebook. And rightfully so--it's pretty cool. And I want one in my apartment! It looks so simple, but it might not be immediately obvious how to wrap your head around how it works. The artist's name is Klemens Torggler. He'
