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 time savings on the back end are well worth the effort! Even better news: If you’re a proficient user of AutoCAD software, you should have no problem converting those boring static blocks into shiny new dynamic blocks.

Key Learnings

  • Learn how to create dynamic blocks with the following abilities: stretch, mirror, array, rotate, and align, as well as having multiple insertion points
  • Learn how to limit block variations through lists, increments, block tables, and lookup actions
  • Learn how to apply constraints and parameters to control block behavior
  • Learn how to extract dynamic-block properties to AutoCAD tables and Excel spreadsheets
