  1. Hello all! Let me first say that I've been looking through some of the threads on this forum and am blown away by the knowledge and creativity some of you possess. It's ridiculous the things you guys are able to do with AutoCAD. With that said, I'm hoping someone can help me solve a difficult problem I've been having. I've never created dynamic blocks and am learning as I go. I've scoured the internet looking for the answer for my needs and have experimented for hours but am still left without a working block. --A quick note before I begin, I'm using AutoCAD LT 2016 for all of this-- What I'm trying to do is create a dynamic solar panel block that can accomplish three things: 1. Dynamically fill a distance (up to 310' for fire code) with solar panels 2. Have three visibility states representing different angles for the solar panels 3. Have a solar panel counter that is visible within the properties but doesn't actually show up in the model Bonus: Dynamically fill an area with solar panels with the same requirements So far I've been able to accomplish #1 and #2 but to a limited degree. I can fill a distance just fine but if I change visibility states, the length is reset back to it's original. I need to be able to change visibility states without the length going away. #3 is the real problem. I have tried dozens of Attribute Definition combinations but can't seem to find one that works. The bonus would be nice to accomplish and I was able to do so with some success but didn't try to implement the visibility states or counter given the difficulty I've found just trying to make the lengthening block. I'm sure there are those of you that could create my block in no time at all and while I do appreciate that, what I'm really wanting is to learn what mistakes I'm making and how to do fix them myself. I've attached both the block that I've made as well as a file (posted on this very forum) that essentially recreates what I'm trying to accomplish (with a few tweaks e.g. I'm limited to using architectural units and I don't want a visible counter). Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated! chairtest.dwg Fixed Solar Module 1.dwg
  2. Hi This is my first post on here, I'v had much benefit over the years with queries however I cannot seem to find one that will help me this time. I'm unsure as to whether this is a glitch or an error in the block? I need a panel drawing that can be stretched both in height and vertical. Along both edges I need a hole set in from the corner and at max 400mm ctrs between. I'm pretty much there, though when I add an array to the vertical edge, it throws out the hole positions on the horizontal, so when the panel is stretched on the height the holes move out of the panel, not on the edge as needed. Can anyone help with this issue please, has anyone had this before? In addition is it possible to change hole set-out on the array so they would remain at typical 400 spacing with the ends equalized? I tried midpoint on the parameter but again the holes seemed to move outside the panel when stretched. Really appreciate your help. Dynamic Panel 01.DWG
  3. I have the following block where I have successfully inserted stretch action (no limits) and array action (limit 20). I need to display the array count number next to the block so that I don't have to count the aisles every time I have to use the action. Dynamic Array Count.dwg
  4. How can we have an array with variable distance between columns in dynamic block? I have an application where I used a lookup table for a stretch action, I want the array distance to change when I change the value in the lookup table.
  5. My dynamic block is an Index form that has three attributes that need to be copied down as I "stretch" the block. This index needs to have anywhere between 4 and 64 entries. My knowledge of making dynamic blocks is not extensive, I have been doing it for a while, but nothing too complicated. I figured that I could get the row of attributes to "array" down with the "stretch" action. That doesn't work. Anyone have any suggestions for me?
