Author Shaun Bryant explains how to add a rotation parameter to a dynamic block in AutoCAD.
- [Instructor] We're staying in…our Diverter Valve.dwg file.…We're in the Block Editor, editing our Diverter Valve block…to make sure that it becomes a dynamic block.…What we're going to do in this video…is at the rotation parameter…and all of the settings that tie up with…that rotation parameter…and the rotate action as well.…Now, in order to do that, you can see that…we've got all our component parts of our block…in the Block Editor.…You'll notice that these are…all sort of lines and arcs and so on,…but you'll notice the actual valve itself…is actually a block within a block,…like we've done in previous videos.…
So, we want to zoom in towards the center here,…so I'll just zoom in a bit…so that you can see what you're doing.…We then go up to the Block Editor menu,…click on the flyout here and select Rotation.…Now, I'll ask for a base point of the rotation parameter.…You need your Center Snap switched on in your Object Snaps…and your Object Snaps on,…so that when you come down here to this little circle,…you get your Center Snap there, left-click.…
