Sequences and Ranges in Dynamo

Usually when a person is making stuff in Dynamo, they aren't making just one or 2 things.  More often than not, you are actually making a ton of stuff, series or related ranges of items.  This can require inputting lists of numbers to position and arrange your stuff.

Some standard nodes exist for this, namely Number Range and Number Sequence



But you can also insert ranges and sequences directly into certain nodes following this syntax

Start..End
0..4 will yield  0,1,2,3,4

Start..End..Interval
0..4..2 will yield 0,2,4

Start..End..#Count
0..1..#5 will yield 0, 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1

Start..#List Length..Interval
0..#4..10 will yield 0,10,20,30


Additionally, you can insert variables within the ranges and sequences like 0..#a..50

  1. Inserting variables in the Number node could be really powerful. I miss the previous functionality of adding singular list items, but acknowledge the UI was a bit shaky due to the Return not exiting the node. +1 for a comeback, with perhaps using some delimiter since those Germans want to use the comma as a decimal! %^(
