Author Shaun Bryant explains how to adjust actions in dynamic blocks in AutoCAD.
- [Instructor] So once again we're staying…in our DOOR-Actions.dwg file.…As you can see there, I've got the dynamic block…selected already, and you can see the door opening…there as well, and you can see all the nice grips are…available now in our dynamic door block.…So what we need to do now is test our dynamic block.…Now the lovely thing is is I've got…an alignment parameter here.…If I hover over it, tells me it aligns…the block to the object.…So if I click and hold on that grip,…and I hover and move along the wall,…can you see it aligns to the wall as I come down and around?…If I'm just gentle there, though, and click…on the end point there, it aligns it nice…and neatly with that door opening.…
I can then use the flip action, and it flips…the door nice and neatly either side if I want to.…If I click on the stretch action, watch what happens here.…As I stretch, can you see my door gets bigger or smaller,…and the lines get longer, can you see,…and the arc gets bigger?…So if I click on that grip there, you can see there…
