Description

Description

Why should you be using dynamic blocks? Quite simply, dynamic blocks can greatly reduce the number of blocks in your library, improving your efficiency. While it does take a little more time up front to create a dynamic block, the timesavings on the back end are well worth the effort! Even better news: if you are a proficient user of AutoCAD software, you should have no problem converting those boring, static blocks into shiny, new, dynamic blocks.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Any AutoCAD user who wishes to reduce the size of their block library while improving efficiency.
