Part 1 of 3: Dynamic Block Overview and Quick-Start Tutorial
In AutoCAD® 2006 software, you can now create blocks that are intelligent and flexible. This exciting new feature, called Dynamic Blocks, enables you to modify blocks within specific constraints. A block library might have dozens of windows (if architectural) or bolts (if mechanical). With Dynamic Blocks, you can create one block that takes the place of all these related blocks and be confident that modifications match the dimensions of their real-world objects. As a result, the process of finding the right block is much more efficient. Inserting and editing the block is practically error-free.
This first of three articles explains the basic concepts of Dynamic Blocks and ends with a quick-start tutorial. Part two provides detailed documentation of the feature. Part three introduces some of the advanced uses for Dynamic Blocks.
