Generative Design 22.3.10 for Revit 2022

Jul 23, 2021– Autodesk released Generative Design 22.3.10 for Revit 2022

The Generative Design 22.3.10 for Revit 2022 is available via the Autodesk Desktop Connector app or via download from the Autodesk subscription site. The update requires access to the original install resources.

This build replaces any previously installed version of Generative Design for Revit.

The build version of this release of Generative Design 22.3.10.

Direct access to Generative Design in Revit using the ribbon tools is available only to subscribers of the Autodesk Architecture, Engineering, & Construction (AEC) Collection. Without the AEC Collection subscription, you can access some similar functionality with Dynamo for Revit.

Generative Design for Revit 2022

With Generative Design in Revit, you can leverage computing power to quickly generate and explore alternatives to a design problem.

In a generative design process, you specify the goals, constraints, and inputs. Then you leverage the power of the computer to generate lots of design alternatives quickly and to evaluate these alternatives against the defined goals. The result is a set of alternatives that help you meet your design goals.

Generative Design 22.3.10 Improvements

File path input nodes:

The Define Study dialog now allows you to browse and select a file from the Generative Design user interface.
As a result, when creating a study, you no longer need to select a file using Dynamo.

Export outcomes:

Export data from a generative design study, saving it in a CSV file.
This data can include generated outcomes, filtered outcomes, discarded outcomes, and their thumbnail images.
Use the CSV file with tools such as Microsoft® Excel, Microsoft® Power BI, and Glueviz to manipulate the data and create different types of visualizations.
Share the exported outcomes with others. See Export Outcomes.

Outcome thumbnails:

For each outcome, Generative Design stores a thumbnail image of the model and displays it (instead of a live 3D view) on the Explore Outcomes dialog.
This improvement improves performance, allowing you to see more than ten outcomes at a time and helping existing studies to load more quickly.
You can find and use these images to share with your team in discussions to arrive at the optimal solution.

Include file dependencies:

When editing a study type in Dynamo, you can include file dependencies using the Generative Design Tools panel  Study Type tab.
This option copies any files referenced by an input node in the graph into the Dependencies folder for that study, making it easier to share the study type with others.

Easily open a study type in Dynamo:

From the Create Study dialog, move the cursor over a study type description to see the new  icon.
Click it to open the study type in Dynamo, so you can examine its details or modify the way it works.
For example, if you try to run a study but it generates no outcomes, you may want to check its logic to see if adjustments are required.
See Update a Study Type.

Resize Create Study and Define Study dialogs:

The Create Study and Define Study dialogs are now responsive, allowing you to resize them to your preference.

Updated Sample Study Types

The sample study types are updated to reflect the following improvements:

In the Define Study dialog for the Randomize Object Placement study type, for some inputs you can now choose a value from a drop-down list instead of selecting a corresponding element from the model.

In the Define Study dialog for the Three Box Massing study type, some inputs are now cleared to demonstrate the use of constant input sliders.
Select a box to make an input variable, and clear a box to select a constant value from the slider.

Help links:

In addition to context-sensitive help links at the bottom of some dialogs, you can now access Generative Design online help using the  button in the upper right corner of each dialog, including the Create Study dialog, the Define Study dialog, and the Explore Outcomes dialog.
Once there, explore the concepts, workflows, tasks, and videos for Generative Design.
