Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Dynamic blocks practice, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2015 Essential Training.
- Now that we've taken a look…at some of the parameters and actions,…let's put them together…and make a nice, useful dynamic block.…Here, we have a conference room table.…The table is 72 inches long…by 36 inches wide,…and it seats eight, as you can see.…Our client wants to use this table…in their new office building,…so we need to block it…as we'll be inserting many of these.…Also, we found out from the manufacturer…they're adding three new versions of the table.…In addition to the 72-inch version,…they will make a 48-inch version,…as well as as 96-…and a massive 120-inch table that seats 12.…
Also, there will be an optional power station…in the center of the table…for people to plug in their laptops.…This is optional, so not every table will have it.…We could create four new blocks…for the four different sizes,…and then an additional four blocks…for the optional power station.…But, using dynamic blocks,…we're gonna combine all those features…into one dynamic block.…We'll start by blocking our table.…I'm gonna call this Conference Room Table,…
