This example contains a method of splitting work among multiple colleagues by having a common source of geometrical information that is updated and read by all those involved.

Dynamo can be used also in teams working on the same project. The mindset around this problem is how to have a common set of information that can be distributed among dynamo files. For this we used the CaribouDTO package to export geometrical information into xml.
File “Creating Bottom Truss” will be the start point of the bridge creation.
Axis lines are the first step in creating any kind of structure. But our project consists mainly in axis lines and we need to split these also. So for this project I considered that a good place to start would be from the bottom truss. These lines will setup the bottom environment but will also allow others to attach with other portions of the bridge.
File “Creating Deck” will grab information from the previous dynamo file by using the xml export. It will attach to the sections defined and will create the necessary components for our deck.
File “Creating Deck Lateral” will create the vertical diagonals between the deck and the bottom truss. This file will also use information from the previous files by the use of xml geometrical information.
File “Main Arches” will create the large arches and the truss system between them.
