Author Shaun Bryant shows you an AutoCAD dynamic block.
- [Instructor] As per the previous video,…we're staying in our Blocks.dwg file.…And as you can see, we've now got…the two standard door blocks in our…AutoCAD for Mac drawing as per the last video.…So what we're going to have a little look at now…is what this course is all about, dynamic blocks.…How do dynamic blocks work in comparison…to your regular standard blocks in AutoCAD?…Well, as I said, a standard block,…when you click on it and you select it,…it's got a base point there.…I can click on that base point…and I can move the block around if I want to,…like so, and then hit escape, obviously, to deselect it.…
Now, the dynamic block is this one here.…When I click on it, you can see it's different…because it's got this little arrow,…which is a flip action, built into the dynamic block.…It's still got the little grip, though.…I can click on the grip, I can drag,…and I can place the block wherever I want to.…Notice the little flip action follows it around.…Now, I'm just going to hit escape there to deselect.…If I go to insert block like we did in the last video,…
