Author Shaun Bryant explains how to use visibility states in dynamic blocks in AutoCAD.
- [Instructor] We're starting a new chapter now…all about visibility states in dynamic blocks in AutoCAD…and we've got a new drawing for you to use.…It's called Wall Sink.dwg…and you can see why it's called Wall Sink…'cause we've got lots of different views…and blocks of wall sinks in the drawing.…Now, we're looking at visibility states,…so the first thing we're going to look at…is actually using visibility states…in a dynamic block in an AutoCAD drawing.…Now, you'll notice that we've got four blocks…and you'll notice that these blocks here…are just standard blocks.…
That's a standard block.…That is also there a standard block.…That's the plan view…and we've also got the side view of the same wall sink.…Now this little block here though is a dynamic block.…If I select it, and maybe just pan across a tiny bit,…what'll happen is you'll notice with that selected,…you've got a little arrow here.…If I click on that now,…I can specify which visibility state…of the dynamic block I want to see.…At the moment, it's the front view.…
