Setting up a Graph for Refinery

Inputs

To set up a Dynamo graph for Refinery right-click on each node used to drive the graph and ensure that the Is Input option is ticked. Renaming the node with a standard approach such as IN_description will help to distinguish these inputs in Refinery.

(Note: currently all inputs must be number slider nodes)

Outputs

To define outputs in Refinery, right-click on the watch nodes and select the Is Output option. Renaming the node with a standard approach such as OUT_description will help to distinguish these outputs in Refinery.

(Note: currently all outputs must be watch nodes with a data type of Number).
