Author Shaun Bryant explains what parameters do in dynamic blocks in AutoCAD.
- [Instructor] We're starting a new chapter now…all about the parameters of dynamic blocks in AutoCAD.…And we've got a new drawing for you to use.…You can download it from the library…to follow along with the videos…in this particular chapter.…Now bear in mind, we're doing a bit of a crossover here.…We're going to do this chapter, all about parameters,…and then the following chapter…is all about adding actions to those parameters…in the same dynamic block.…Don't worry; there will be exercise files provided…that will cover you for both of these chapters.…
So don't worry too much about saving files,…because each chapter has its own individual exercise file…stored in the library.…So in our door parameters, dot dwg file…that we've got in front of us right now,…we're going to create a standard door block first,…and then we're going to start adding…the dynamic parameters to it.…You can see the door,…sort of towards the top right…of the door parameters drawing there.…Just zoom in on the door, so that you can see it…and it's a bit bigger.…
