Author Shaun Bryant explains how to use rotation parameters in dynamic blocks in AutoCAD.
- We're starting another chapter now…and we're going to be looking at rotation parameters…and actions in our dynamic blocks, in our AutoCAD drawings.…Now, we've got a new drawing for you to use…to download from the library and it's called…Diverter Valve.dwg.…And as you can see on the screen,…it's a little diverter valve,…the little blue valve in the middle…rotates, and obviously allows flow…through those green pipes where the red center lines are.…Just make sure that you download Diverter Valve.dwg…from the library to follow along with the videos…in this particular chapter.…
Now, we're going to look at rotation parameters and actions.…In order to do that, we obviously…need to be in the block editor.…This particular valve is already a block.…If I hover over it, you can see all of it is a block,…so if I select it, right-click,…and go Block Editor, that'll open up quite happily…in the block editor, like so.…Now, when it comes to rotation parameters and actions,…you'll notice on the block editor menu,…you'll see that we've got a rotation parameter.…
