Author Shaun Bryant explains what actions do in dynamic blocks in AutoCAD.
- [Instructor] We're starting a new chapter now…in our course, and what we're going to be looking at now…is dynamic blocks and the actions applied to dynamic blocks.…Now you remember in the previous chapter…we covered the parameters and we added parameters…to our standard block, ready for our actions.…So in this new drawing, DOOR-Actions.dwg,…we've got the block there,…and it is almost a dynamic block,…but it's got all the parameters but no actions set up.…So what we need to do is open up our block…in the block editor again to check…that we've got the parameters we need…before we start adding the actions to our new…dynamic door block.…
So to check that it's a block, hover over it.…It obviously is.…It's all one object, you can see.…Click on it, do the usual right click,…and then go to Block Editor on the Shortcut menu.…And you'll notice there that we've got Flip state1.…There's our Flip perimeter.…Distance1 our linear perimeter.…And if you hover on the corner there, you can just see that…there's our alignment perimeter as well.…
