Author Shaun Bryant explains how to add parameters in dynamic blocks in AutoCAD.
- [Instructor] As usual we're staying…in the Wall Sink.dwg file.…We're in the Block Editor…editing our Wall Sink 2-DYNAMIC block.…Now in the previous video…we placed all of the regular blocks…all on top of each other…as you can see on the screen using that midpoint snap.…What we need to do now…is add a couple of parameters…that are quite important…for placement of our dynamic block…in the drawing, so we're going to add some point parameters.…So, go up to the Block Editor menu…and click on the little fly out here.…
Now, what you want is a basepoint parameter…first of all, so you go to Basepoint,…and it'll ask for the parameter location.…You want to get that midpoint snap in there again.…See the midpoint snap?…The one we used in the previous video.…So, there's our base point parameter in place.…Then we're going to go back to the fly out menu…and also select a Point parameter as well,…so I'm going to select that and again, midpoint snap…just in there on the same midpoint object snap…and then you just drag the label location up…
