Use Flux to exchange data
between Excel, Grasshopper,
Dynamo, and more via the Web.

why use flux

save more time for creative work

choose

the best tool
for the job

Each team member chooses the design or analysis tool that is best suited for the task, not driven by compatibility concerns.

connect

the tools into a
seamless flow

Flux plugins keep data synchronized between tools used by different team members and across sites without tedious file transfers.

where to use flux

streamline your design workflows

design exploration

Use Excel to control project requirements and perform complex calculations, send those requirements to Grasshopper for form finding and spatial analysis, and send metrics back to Excel for summary and comparison. Stay agile while exploring faster and deeper.

multi-user grasshopper

Divide a complex Grasshopper project into separate scripts maintained by different team members. Use Flux to synchronize data between scripts either on demand or in live-streaming mode. Use this setup to offload long-running scripts onto a separate computer.

design development

Once you’ve developed a schematic design in Grasshopper, send the centerlines and other reference geometry to Revit via Dynamo. Inside Dynamo, transform reference geometry into appropriate families. When you update the schematic design in Grasshopper, your Revit model will automatically update.

design validation

Use Dynamo to extract material schedules from your Revit model and send them to Flux to perform summary calculations. Merge data from multiple Revit models into a single Excel file to ensure all the sums match up. This Excel file can be updated automatically as the Revit models change.
