Author Shaun Bryant explains what dynamic blocks are in AutoCAD.
- [Instructor] We're starting a new chapter now…and what we're going to be looking at is…using Dynamic Blocks in AutoCAD for Mac.…And what we're going to look at first…in this drawing that we've provided…which is called DynamicBlocks.dwg,…see the name of it at the top of the screen,…is we're going to look at how we actually…work with Dynamic Blocks and what are…Dynamic Blocks in AutoCAD.…So you can see the drawing itself,…we've got a couple of floor plans there…and there are some Dynamic Blocks already in…the DynamicBlocks.dwg file.…
So the big question is what are Dynamic Blocks?…What do they do and why are they different…to a regular AutoCAD Block?…Well first thing we're going to do,…we're going to look at the left hand floor plan…and we're going to zoom in to the bottom left corner…where that dining table and four chairs are.…Now the quickest way to do this for me…is use the keyboard Z + Enter for Zoom,…W + Enter for Window and then I'm going to click…and just drag my window over that bottom left corner there…
