    Example graphs

    Can anyone recommend a resource for some good (meaning useful in production) example graphs, ideally some that don't depend on any custom nodes? Or is that an oxymoron and no useful graph is possible without custom nodes?

    It depends how you define useful!

    You can totally be useful with only OOTB nodes, however, custom nodes generally do a lot of heavy lifting and or pull data from the API that the OOTB nodes either have a hard time doing or simply can't as of yet.

    I have quite a few useful nodes hanging around - more than happy to post some. What are you looking for in a broad sense?

      I am working on documenting an approach to a fully managed Dynamo, including shared nodes and packages, firm vs project graphs and a few other tweaks. So, I was hoping someone might have a blog or something with some example graphs that I could include in my example documentation/video, and then also link to so folks could then download and implement the same thing as a starting point. More compelling than showing an implementation with a bunch of empty folders that COULD contain something.

      And I need to test my approach, so saving some time and testing with some "known good" graphs would be better and save time over me building my own goofy graphs to test with.

      EDIT: The fact that this thread is ALREADY the top hit when searching DuckDuckGo for "example dynamo graph" suggests that perhaps there are not a lot of resources out there for finished graphs, just for custom nodes and packages. Very interesting.

        Have a look at the following link (A blog post by my colleague): DOOR RENUMBERING - Design Tech

        This is a rather 'classic' type of Dynamo graph.

        You can also look at Dieter Vermuelens blog: https://revitbeyondbim.wordpress.com...s-with-dynamo/

        Or Jostein Olsens blog: Revit Dynamite and Ammo

        Or John Pierson's blog, in particular a post like this: Get Joined Elements in #Revit with #DynamoBIM

        If none of these tickle, then let me know. I'll find something on my server

          A repository for Dynamo Graphs would be awesome, even if only used for reverse engineering. The problem with it that I see is the back-end of the software changes (did change?) so quickly that graphs can be outdated in a matter of weeks.

            I forgot one of the most useful... which is a repository as you mentioned!

              I wouldn't say it's an oxymoron but I sure as hell wouldn't limit myself to nodes that only come with Dynamo! Way too much good stuff out there.

              What I need is a way to distribute Dynamo and point the packages path to a shared folder with using the UI. Maybe it's possible but I've not yet heard about it. The rest is fairly straight forward I think in terms of sharing content.

                Please correct me if I've entirely missed the point - super jet-lagged right now. But have you seen the following?

                Found under: Settings -> Manage Node and Package Paths

                  I think I meant to say "without" using the UI. Can we do that with the command line?
