Frustrated with Dynamo learning
« on: January 23, 2019, 05:14:30 PM »
K, so I've tried getting some info from others regarding learning some dynamo to no avail.
Lemme try this route then;

I want to create a simple routine so when I am in a project, I can run the script to check if there are any linked revit models &/or any CAD files.  If there are any linked files, to remove them from the open project.

Does this sound easy enough?  I hope so.

Question, Where do I start?   How can I know what nodes to start this simple routine?

In VBscript, Java, C#, C++, etc, etc, there are always a reference manual one can peruse to learn what command or node does what function.  With Dynamo there seems to be NOTHING.  So frustrating.

Design is something you should do with both hands. My 2d hand , my 3d hand ..
