Author Shaun Bryant shows you how to use dynamic blocks in AutoCAD.
- [Instructor] We're staying in…our dynamic blocks dot dwg file,…which as usual, you can download from the library…to use to follow along with the videos.…Now what we're going to do now is use our dynamic blocks…in our dynamic blocks dot dwg file.…Now you'll notice, down at the bottom of the screen there,…I've still got that dynamic window block selected.…I'm just going to hit escape to deselect that.…Make sure you just hit escape a couple of times…as a matter of course…when you're not using any commands in AutoCAD,…just in case you've got any blocks or objects selected.…
You don't want to accidentally edit them…by mistake, for example.…Now we're going to look at the table and chairs,…the dining room table and chairs.…So I select that block, like that.…Now it's a dynamic block,…and as I mentioned in the previous video,…you've got these grips that allow you…to drag to adjust the table length.…That's the whole essence of a dynamic block.…You've got those extra features.…Those extra parameters and actions…allow you to adjust the block in the drawing.…
