Installation of Dynamo Package SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design¶

The installed Dynamo package SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design has to be always the same version as the last released Service Pack for SOFiSTiK 2020 products. The package is always available through the Dynamo Package Manager, but you always have to ensure, that the versions are compatible.

The following approach is recommended to guarantee the compatibility:

If you not have already installed the SOFiSTiK Analysis + Design for Revit 2020, then follow the instruction in the SOFiSTiK SAM Application Manager. Successfully installed, you will find the app installation in the folder, which contains the newest released dynamo package.
