Author Shaun Bryant explains how to add angle adjustment to a rotation parameter in dynamic blocks in AutoCAD.
- We're staying in our Diverter Valve.dwg file…and in the previous video, we added…the rotational parameter and action…in order to allow us to rotate the little blue valve…in the center of the valve assembly.…What we're going to do now is add a flip parameter…in this particular video,…and then in the next video,…we're going to set up the flip action…that applies to that parameter.…Then what we'll do is we'll test the block…and make sure that it all works.…So, we're going to go back into the block editor.…
Now, a little trick, if you've already got a block…in place in the drawing,…just hover over it so it highlights,…double-click on it, and it will automatically open…in the block editor.…So we can now see all of our rotational parameter,…our rotate action, and so on.…We need to go up to the block editor menu…and select our flip parameter first,…and the base point is going to be the endpoint…of the center line here, click.…And we're going to come vertically upwards.…Now, you can select any point you wish.…What I would suggest that you do is…
