AC2601-L: A Dynamic Lab on Dynamic Block Creation in AutoCAD

  • Save to my AU Saved

Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Explain the block creation environment
  • Create, test, and edit dynamic blocks
  • Use lists to limit the way in which users can adjust dynamic blocks
  • Use parameters and constraints to get the most out of your dynamic blocks

Description

Description

Do you have a bloated block library due to many variations of the same block? Let's take a door for example: because of different door widths, directions, thicknesses, and other variables, you can easily find yourself with hundreds of blocks. Let's reduce that to one dynamic block that has the ability to take on those hundreds of variations. In this hands-on lab, you have the chance to make your own dynamic blocks that you can take back to work with you and instantly increase your productivity.

Target Audience

Target Audience

AutoCAD software users who would like to improve efficiency by reducing the size of their block libraries through the creation of dynamic blocks
