About Dynamo


Dynamo, or Dynamo Revit, is a visual programming tool created for designers and engineers to use in conjunction with Revit. The program requires little to no programming expertise and is easy for a new user to learn.

The Dynamo toolbox contains a set of functions that can be used to communicate with FEM-Design through StruXML allowing its users to create parametric models, run iterative analyses and create automated workflows.
