Author Shaun Bryant explains how to use the wall sink dynamic block in AutoCAD.
- [Instructor] We're staying in our Wall Sink.dwg file…and now we're back in the AutoCAD drawing…having created our Wall Sink 2-DYNAMIC.…All we need to do now…is quickly insert our new dynamic block…into the drawing and give it a quick test…to make sure that it works.…So, all we do now…is go to the Block panel in the left-hand menu,…click on Insert Block…and if we click on the down arrow now…there's our Wall Sink 2-DYNAMIC.…We select it.…You can also see the little orange lightning symbol…indicating that it's a dynamic block.…
So, I click on Insert now…and as you can see, it uses that base point,…can you see that we selected…with our parameters as the cross hair…is right there on that midpoint,…so I'm just going to drop that sort of there…on the screen and there's our block.…I select it, there's our visibility parameter,…I click on that…if I want Wall Sink-FRONT,…it updates, if I click on it again,…Wall Sink-SIDE it updates,…so our visibility states are all working…and our dynamic block is doing what we want it to do.…
