One of the most powerful features of AutoCAD is dynamic blocks.
AutoCAD Blocks And Dynamic Blocks [Video]
Following the command line, select the arc and line geometer. For my purposes one is good. I am now going to make it rotate. When I pick a size the block switches between the two sketches of my flange. Leave A Comment Cancel reply Comment. I bloco this will be of use to someone.

I am currently on the 80NB Flange so I change to the NB and use the Make Visible button and select the Rotation Parameter and the round grip and press enter to enable visibility for the rotation grip in the NB selection. This is because this Parameter requires an Action to go with it.
This Section Label can rotate in any direction and be used on any side using the grips identified on the image, but this is just a fraction of what dynamic blocks can do. Once you have completed this video based training course on Blocks and Dynamic Blocks in AutoCAD, you will have an in-depth understanding of this subject, and how to apply it to your own drafting projects.
My basic Dynamic 2D Pipe block is complete. This breaks down as follows:. I can rotate all the components. The first thing I am going to do is set up the Visibility Parameter on the Authoring Palettes to create grips that will let me pick between the two flange sizes. Adding more parameters to Block: I need to set up the rotation for both sizes and make the Rotate grip visible for both. As everything is visible at the moment I will be using the third button to make the NB flange invisible under the 80NB selection.
Aautocad I select the Rotate Parameter in the Authoring Palettes, I click on the midpoint of the front of the flange then I move out a bit and click again. Next step is to make sure that the Rotate grip is visible on both flanges.
You can download a copy of this block from my A account using this link http: It will prompt to select the parameter which I want to use, I select the Linear Parameter. I will try to demonstrate most of the functions I have used before by applying it to something a little bit more interesting than just creating drawing symbols.
Finally, we would like to apply some actions to aitocad and stretch these objects so that we can edit them on the fly as and when we need to. I can stretch the pipe length to any length I want.
Then with both of the pipe sizes visible I select the one endpoint of the top line and then the other endpoint of the top line of the Bpock Pipe sketch and move the mouse cursor up, like placing a dimension. I am going to move it later after the setup is complete.
Shaun also gives you advanced user tips and tricks to further enhance your block management abilities!
AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks – What, Why & How??
A dynamic block can contain all these variants within the one block and allows you to edit them to meet your requirements using grips rather than commands. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.
Now there is only one final step left to do before I can start assembling my dynamic pipeline using the parts I created. This is a guest post, you can share your articles as well. What are AutoCAD dynamic blocks and why should we use them?
Six different style tables, all different shapes and sizes and rotations all made from the same block. Shaun begins by teaching you how to set up simple blocks. In the block editor, align your tables so that they have the same base point.
