Author Shaun Bryant explains how to add visibility states in dynamic blocks in AutoCAD.
- [Instructor] So once again,…we're in the wall sink dot dwg file.…We're in the Block Editor, editing our wall sink two…dynamic block, and as you can see,…I've left it in the same state…as it was at the end of the last video.…We've got the three regular blocks in there.…We've got our two parameters in there,…and you can see our Position1 parameter sitting there…with the little pale blue square…on that midpoint snap as per the previous video.…So now, we've got to start thinking about…adding our visibility states.…Now, you'll notice on the Block Editor menu,…we've got Add Visibility.…
I'm going to click there, like so,…and it says, Specify parameter location.…Now that parameter location, if you remember,…going back to the first video in this particular chapter,…is that triangle that you click on…to select each of the visibility states,…so you want it to be reasonably close to…the regular blocks in the drawing area.…I normally place it sort of top left…here and click there like that.…Number of grips is one, which is fine.…
