Author Shaun Bryant explains how to adjust parameters in dynamic blocks in AutoCAD.
- As usual, we're staying in our door parameters.DWG file…and as you can see, I've left the drawing…in exactly the same state as it was…at the end of the last video.…So we're still in the block editor.…We haven't come out of that yet.…We've added the linear parameter, the distance one…and the flip parameter, the flip state one parameter.…They're still there.…What we need to do now is add that…alignment parameter as well that I mentioned…in the previous video.…We need to make sure that's there…so that whenever we drop our dynamic block…of our door into our AutoCAD drawing,…you can then align the block with the door openings…whichever orientation they're in…in your AutoCAD drawing.…
So let's make sure that we do that as well…before we actually come out of the editor…and safe the block in the drawing.…Now, what we're going to do is go back up…to the block editor menu here,…click on the flyer again for the parameters…and there's our alignment parameter right there.…So we click on our alignment…and it asks for the base point of the alignment.…
