Dynamo and Revit 2017

Dynamo is a visual programming platform that gives you the ability to visually script behavior, define custom pieces of logic and script using various textual programming languages. It is now fully integrated with Revit 2017 and does not require an additional download. No longer just an add-in to Revit, it can now be found in the Manage tab, Visual Programming panel. 

If you have already 
installed Revit 2017, you will not be able to immediately see Dynamo in the Manage tab. First, you will have to rerun the Dynamo installer and make sure to check Revit 2017 to add Dynamo to this new install.
Once the installation is complete, launch Revit 2017 and Dynamo should be available to you in the Manage tab, Visual Programming panel.
Checkout this quick video with step-by-step instructions on installing Dynamo for Revit 2017.
