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.
