Author Shaun Bryant explains how to use the diverter valve dynamic block in AutoCAD,
- [Instructor] So, we're now back…into our Diverter Valve.dwg…and our block is now truly dynamic.…We've added the rotational parameter,…the rotate action, we've also added the settings…for that rotate action via the parameter.…We've also added a flip parameter…and a flip action as well.…So, if I select the block now…you'll see all of those tools…are available to me.…You can see I can click here…and as I rotate now there's my rotation parameter…with the settings of the angles…and I can rotate the little valve…into any location I want like so.…
What I can also do is click on the flip action here…and you'll see now that that flips nicely…and it holds everything in place.…You'll notice there is a grip there on the left.…That is the grip that is obviously utilized…to move the block around,…that's the base point of the regular block so to speak…and what we've got here as well…is I can click and I can drag again…and you'll notice because I haven't actually rotated…the rotate action by way of using the flip action,…you can see that I can just place that like so…
