Refinery 0.4.26 is now available for download

A new version of Project Refinery is now available for your generative pleasure via the Autodesk Feedback community. It’s a pretty big release – being the first since the launch of the public beta at AU 2018 – and has some very interesting features.

New Features

  • Refinery installer
  • New sample files
  • 10 times faster
  • Less computing resources used
  • Better initial geometry views
  • Smaller geometry storage on disk
  • Filtering of designs in parallel coordinates
  • Sorting for thumbnail views and table
  • Better progress indicators
  • Pause and resume for studies
  • Refinery Server shutdown occurs automatically on exiting Dynamo

Bug Fixes

  • Chinese input names now work correctly
  • Fixed error “…does not seem to support WebGL”
