Hi, It's a bit difficult to explain my problem I would like to know how (or if it's even possible) to have an object follow a block in rotation (authored) without the object rotating itself. Kind of like a piston in a car, the piston will only move up and down but the rod and crankshaft will be in rotation (good example I hope). Or a luffing crane hoisting up and down and the counter ballast will follow the line of rotation but not rotate itself... Help would me much appreciated. Thanks.
My friend is wanting to know the answers to these questions? 1a What is the advantage of creating a Block for use in an AutoCAD drawing? 1b Why is it recommended to draw Blocks on Layer 0? 2a What is the difference between a Block and a WBlock? 2b What is the advantage of being able tocreate and use WBlocks in AutoCADdrawings? 3a Why would there be a need to convert aninserted Block back into itsconstituent parts? 3b Describe the process of removing anunwanted Block from an AutoCADdrawing 4a What is the advantage of adding Attributes to a Block? 4b Why is important to “define” the Attributes to added to a Block before the Block is created? 5a What is the advantage of attaching anexternal drawing (XRef) for use in the current drawing? 5b What is the principle difference betweenattaching an XRef to an AutoCAD drawing and inserting a Block into an AutoCADdrawing? 5c Why is it important to ensure that an XRefdrawing is located in the same folder as the drawing that references it?
chitownCADteacher posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceI'm trying to use the PATH array feature on 2013 to array stairs, and I can't get the array to be 100% accurate. It seems like CAD rounds the decimal to the nearest 3/4" which could be causing the problem. I set my run to 10.5" and rise to 7.25", array along the angle of the stringer, and there's always a small overlap on the stairs. The "distance between" should be 1'-209/256" and CAD rounds it to 1'-3/4" which is where I believe the error is. Is there any way to fix this or array this correctly? Otherwise...back to the COPY method I suppose.
