Introducing FormIt v17.2

by Josh Goldstein 2 years ago

Get excited, Dynamo fans! FormIt v17.2 is now available with huge improvements to the FormIt + Dynamo integration!

This update is for Windows only, which you can download now from our website or via the Autodesk Desktop App.

Here's what's new:

An Improved FormIt + Dynamo Experience

  • Dynamo inputs marked as "Is Input" now appear in the FormIt Properties panel when editing a Dynamo Group, so you can flex Dynamo graphs inside FormIt without launching the Dynamo graph editor. Learn more.

  • FormIt is now unlocked while Dynamo is running or generating geometry, so you can continue creating amazing models while Dynamo executes your graphs in parallel.

  • While editing a Dynamo graph that's been placed in FormIt, changes in Dynamo will show up in real time in the FormIt canvas, so you can assess your changes in the context of the FormIt model or even take measurements to inform or debug your Dynamo graphs.

  • Some of the Dynamo sample graphs have been improved for reliability. Learn more.

Much More Coming Soon
