New Dynamo for Revit Nodes in Version 1.2.3 Work-in-Progress Daily Builds

From the Dynamo website:

New Revit nodes in v1.2.3 daily builds

February 19, 2017

We are getting ready for a 1.3 release, and we have a number of new functionalities that we would appreciate your feedback on. Here is a draft list of what's going in, please take a look at the latest builds available at

Large number geometry scaling: For folks who have had trouble with geometric precision in models with large numbers (buildings and landscape projects described in mm), there is a solution that adjusts numerical precision to accomodate these large numbers. Check out the Geometry Scaling section in the Settings menu.

Isolate geom preview: When the mode is enabled, only selected nodes will have their corresponding geometries displayed in full opacity. Geometries that correspond to unselected nodes will be displayed transparent with 10% opacity for meshes and 20% opacity for lines and points.

Dynamo Dictionary Access from context menu: A link to Dynamo Dictionary is added at the bottom of help menu popup window. This is available for the out-of-the-box core Dynamo nodes. Next phase will include Revit nodes

Preview Bubbles enabled for Revit Selection nodes

Multi-output port re-connect feature using Shift+Left-Click

Fixed line break issue in for group titles, increased group titles font size
