FAQ

Question

Why does the simulation not start right away when I press Bake?

When you start baking a simulation, Dynamo goes through a precalculation step before it can start processing. Although this step can take quite a bit of time, especially in heavy scenes, it is necessary in order to make the actual simulation as fast as possible.

Question

How do I disable the floor?

By default, the ground collider is enabled. It can be disabled in the DynamoSolver object by uncheking the "Ground collider" checkbox.

Question

Can I use Dynamo in a network rendering environment?

Yes! You just have to install the plugin on your render nodes. Only baking requires a license, so your render nodes can read the dynamo caches saved in the max file without using a license. Make sure that the plugin version on your workstation and render nodes match.

Question

Can I use the plugin offline?

The plugin needs to verify its license online once every 3 days. During those 3 days you can be offline.
