Now in its eighth year, the AEC Excellence Awards competition—co-sponsored by Autodesk, Construction Dive, SmartCities Dive, and Informed Infrastructure —is an incredible way to honor the AEC (architecture, engineering, and construction) industry and the ingenuity of the professionals who are stretching the limits of what is possible in AEC. 

Project Refinery updates!

We are continuing to develop Project Refinery, a beta tool for optioneering and optimization of Dynamo graphs. Join the beta here. This release brings great enhancements around filtering in both the parallel coordinates and scatter plot views. Filtering allows you to explore options created in a study much more easily by focusing in on certain

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.  Proje

AU2017: Computational Design in Practice

This year, the Dynamo Workshops at Autodesk University 2017 also included a closing session entitled “Computational Design in Practice”.    After the workshop content, all of the workshop participants came together in one room for a closing session.  We featured 5 inspiring computational design leaders will told exciting stories about

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 new column of checkboxes
