Join Scott Onstott for an in-depth discussion in this video Advanced topic: Variable-radius filleted corner, part of AutoCAD: Designing Dynamic Blocks.
- I've save the most advanced topic for last.…We're going to create a grip here…that allows us to change the radius…of this arch dynamically.…It's going to involve quite a bit of complexity…to pull this off…but I'm showing you this…so that you have food for thought…in terms of how you can design dynamic blocks…to do complex geometric operations.…So, let's dive in.…Select the block and right click…and choose Block Editor.…Zoom in on the corner of the desk.…
Choose a linear parameter…and specify the start point…at the mid point of this arch.…We need to specify the end point…at the center of the arch…so toggle on Center objects now…if it's not already on.…And click right there.…Now we need to specify the label location…that's going to be right there.…Now, select the parameter and type P R enter.…Scroll down and change the number of grips to 1.…
We want to control the size of the arch…with this single grip.…Go to Actions and choose Scale.…Select the parameter and then select the arch…and press enter.…So, we're going to be scaling the arch…
