Description

Description

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

Target Audience

Target Audience

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