Using Random Numbers as a Design Tool with Dynamo
Module | Outcomes and capabilities

Randomness is a useful design strategy but one that is difficult to implement manually. Computational design provides tools that make randomness much easier to incorporate. In this module, we’ll look at a workflow for generating random numbers using Dynamo. These random numbers will be used to create a design pattern for a building facade. 

This module takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. By the end of this module, you should be able to:

  • Understand how random numbers are generated using computational design
  • Create a random number generator in Dynamo
  • Use Boolean logic to set values based on a sequence of random numbers
  • Select elements in a Revit model and change their type using Dynamo
