AS323853 - Getting the Good Stuff Out of Pandora’s Box: Element Binding in Dynamo for Revit

Session Description

Many have used Dynamo to automate tedious tasks and generate complicated geometries and structures, but Dynamo baffles many with some of the concepts that are a bit difficult to grasp. Of these, perhaps the most misunderstood feature of Dynamo for Revit software is Element Binding. This feature ties Revit elements created by Dynamo to the DYN file that created them. When misused, it can lead to lost work, duplicate elements in the model, and frustrated computational designers. When used properly, Element Binding can bring your graphs to a completely new level, enabling not only one-time element creation, but also updating previously created content to reduce time reworking downstream decisions.

Session Speakers
Additional Information
Learn how to differentiate between graphs that need element binding and those that do not
Learn how to read raw file content of DYN and DYF files and understand what content can be modified
Learn how to use Element Binding to move rather than recreate data when projects update
Learn how to use two methods to remove element bindings from a graph
