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!

Key Learnings

  • Learn how to create Dynamic Blocks with the following abilities: stretch, mirror, array, rotate, align, multiple insertion points
  • Learn how to limit block variations through lists and increments
  • Learn how to apply constraints and parameters to control block behavior
  • Learn how to implement Block Tables as well as the Lookup Action to quickly select the desired block iteration
