Info about Generative Design for Revit 2021 and Dynamo
Both Generative Design in Revit 2021 and the Dynamo Player allow you to run Dynamo graphs (scripts) and from Revit to interact with the model in some way. Both tools are designed to allow Revit architects and engineers, who may or may not be proficient with Dynamo, to run a graph without exposing its inner contents.
The difference is in the intent of each tool:
1. Use the Generative Design to generate multiple possible solutions to a design challenge. After you examine and evaluate the alternatives and choose the optimal solution, you can integrate the selected solution into the model.
2. Use the Dynamo Player to perform some function on the current model. These graphs can calculate room occupancy load, update sheet names to upper case, add levels to the model, and more. They can automate repetitive tasks, run model checks, or extract and utilize information from the model.
