For Artists only

Sure – another record track name…

So today was the good, the bad, the ugly…

The good:


Look at this beauty – it is an excavation volume created using Revit and Dynamo and some secret sauce – well no, plain geometry.

The good – it took yours truly the entire afternoon to make this work.


Once again – bin all it’s glory – notice the properties on the left:


Uh oh

So now the bad: we gotta break the bad news to the client – according to his architects landscaping we need to move 1213.574 m3 of dirt. The cost right now is 40 € per cubic meter. 1213.574 x 40 = 48,542.96€. (At which point in time I’d contemplate buying a semi and bring in an offer..).

The ugly – I mean the really ugly:

We went through the workflow in the morning and it was kinda all right in Dynamo:


The screenshot sucks – so here is the dyn.

Tried the same thing in the afternoon – yikes… the cut that was supposed to happen never happened. But why oh why…?


The solution is a well buried feature in Dynamo – Geometry Working Range settings…

Nonameand that is where it came to my mind that I changed my project from mm to m/cm:


Duh – after going back to mm as a project unit Dynamo was happy again.

So my humble question to the dignities at Autodesk – can we pretty please get that stuff right some when within my lifetime?

Life is …good..

  1. If joЬ safety is high in your listiing of priorities, tһat
    iss another iѕsue thats not supplied by freelancing.
    Many individuals must be аssured of steady income, aat a rate that they will depend on, with the intention to keep their payments andd on a
    regulɑr basis living expenses up tto date. Ϝreelancing is not
    going to present the job and incoime security that youd have from being oon the workers of
    a regulation firm.
