DYNAMO-LICIOUS [Updated 08/21/2014] Recorded version: I suggest starting (or fast-forwarding) the video to 59 minutes in...the sound was unavailable for the bluebeam demo Dynamo section should be all good ;)

CLICK ME NOW FOR THE VIDEO!!! -Just fast-forward to 59 minutes in to get to the vid with audio ;)

Dear Architects,
Do you have problems modeling Roof Crickets? I think it may not be the software. Just saying ;)
