Author Shaun Bryant explains how to create a wall sink dynamic block in AutoCAD.
- We're staying in our Wall Sink.dwg file,…and what we're going to do now is we're going to start…to build up a dynamic block that replicates…this dynamic block here with the visibility states like so.…So make sure that you hit Escape a couple of times…just to de-select any blocks you might have selected…in your wall sink drawing.…Then we're going to go over to the Block panel…in the menu on the left-hand side,…and we're going to use this icon here.…Now, you can slide up and down, you'll notice,…but make sure that you use this one here…in the block editor.…
Now, as soon as you click on it,…it'll open up the Edit Block Definition dialog box,…and you can see all the blocks…that you've already got in the drawing.…So you can see you've got your Wall Sink-DYNAMIC,…which is your dynamic block,…and then you've got WS-front, WS-plan, WS-side.…They're the three standard blocks…of the front, plan, and side views…of the block in question.…So what we're going to do, we're going to create…a whole new block definition,…and then as we work through this chapter,…
