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.
- 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
