Author Shaun Bryant explains how to add a parameter in a dynamic block in AutoCAD.
- [Instructor] We're staying in our Door-Parameters.dwg file…and you can see there's our standard block that we created…obviously in the previous video.…What I'd like you to do is just move that block…up a little bit, now, away from the wall.…So just select the block,…click on the little base point there, the grip,…just move it up a little bit, click again like so.…And you might want to move that up and away from the wall…unlike me there, just make sure it's well away from the wall…so just click once and just move up like that…get it right up there, click again,…so you've got a bit of distance…between the wall and the door like that.…
And then just hit escape to deselect.…What you might want to do is possible pan a little bit there…just get it central on the screen,…right click and exit on the shortcut menu like normal.…Now the reason I moved it away from the wall…is purely for clarity so that we can see…all the end point snaps and where we're going to click…on our standard block as we start adding…parameters to it to make it into a dynamic block.…
