  1. Hello! I'm trying to create a dynamic door with a 25 degree opened angle, however, I also want to be able to stretch the door while flipped horizontal/vertical. This is where I'm having trouble. I can only stretch the width of the door if both or none of the axis are flipped. If I flip it horizontally the door leaf does not stretch in the same angle. Does any body know how to correct this? I have checked the sample doors in Autocad that are opened 90 degrees, and they work with flipping. Not sure if it has to do with the 90 degrees or some other thing they have don
  2. Hey, I draw ventilation ductwork all day at work, just recently stumbled across dynamic blocks and could do with a little help with one. Attached is what i have done so far, the straight section works perfectly, just having some trouble with the radius bend. What I need is for the arc to stretch with the angle of the bend. :/ I appreciate any help, and feel free to use my working block. TEST.dwg
  3. Hi all, I'm not new to AutoCAD but I've honestly never created a dynamic block and don't know what I need to do. I've watched a few tutorials on dynamic blocks but what I am trying to do seems a little different than the typical use-case. I do a lot of audio-visual one-line drawings in AutoCAD. I have device equipment blocks showing all input and output connectors. I manually make them for every device but am looking to have a go-to generic dynamic block for one-off simple devices. Here are examples of finished manuall
  4. Hi all! I came out with a problem in the last days, which I wasn't able to solve at all. It's about the creation of a dynamic block of a door, which features stretch, move, polar stretch and rotate commands. I reviewed, with great benefit, already several blogs, but this problem has a different issue which I hadn't found discussed yet. The main problem I am experiencing is how to keep the door tag horizontally, while rotating the door (problem which I solved), meanwhile (the Tag) it must stay fixed in the middle of the opening, even when I am scaling the door (problem whi
  5. I'm trying to figure out how to accomplish this. I *think* I'm able to do it via block properties - but I'd rather not use a block properties table if I can avoid it. If only because there's a limit of 1 block properties table per block and I want to save that for other purposes. Attached is a sample block. It's just a square with a notch in one side, filled with a hatch. Using the lookup table, and the defined stretch actions, I can grow the block to any of the desired 4 sizes. But I want more. I want grips that will let me re-size the block by dragging - but it needs to reta
  6. I am attempting to create a Dynamic Block for electrical home runs that behaves similarly to home runs in Revit. Essentially it is a Spline with (3) Control Vertices and an Arrowhead at opposite end from the Basepoint. I have created the Dynamic block to include the desired visible elements and I've gotten the Spline to behave correctly using Stretch Actions. The only problem I am having is that I can't get the Arrowhead to follow the end of the Spline correctly. I would like it to "bend around" with the Spline but it wants to stay at a fixed angle. If anyone can point me in the right directio

  11. Hi, I need your help on creating a dynamic block of a steel roof. Here is the basic element of the steel roof which I need to repeat, the hidden line being the beginning and ending of the steel sheet. I have tried the array action without success. My only solution is to use xclip on an imaginary large steel roof but doing it with a dynamic block will be just great. Thanks. Steel Roof Dynamic Block.dwg
  12. I have a dynamic block for section cuts and I need the interior line to adapt stretch to to be trimed by the contour when I turn it. this is the block when I select it for the time being. My current work around is that I have the line constrained with a stretch that I manually need to bring to the edge. I also have a visibility state so I can pass from section with page or same page is there a way to place the same attribute (Not two as I currently have) in two location depending on the state? Is there someone who knows how to make t
  13. Hi, I´m trying to make a dynamic "AND/OR" block for some logic diagrams. I want the block to be dynamic in two ways: 1. Number of inputs 2. Each individual input should have the option: inverted (circle) or not inverted (straight line). I can´t manage to get this to work and as far as I have googled it might even be impossible... but maybe someone here have a clever mind to make this work. BR, ripuz
  14. See screenshots. How do I place the lookup in an ordered manner? Thanks in advance.
  15. Dear Members, I have some stretchable dynamic Blocks. I would like to insert and change the length of them in command line. (without use my mouse and grip points) i havent got any problem with the insertation but i cant change the length of this bloks without using mouse. in Properties window there is a section (custom) where i can change the length of the blocks but when i type in command line: change-properties, there i cant find it. just the following options: color, elev, layer, ltype, ltscale, lweight thickness, transparency, materia, annotative Do you have any idea, how coul
  16. Hi, I want a LISP routine which can insert blocks along the polyline. I have two dynamic blocks. They are 'Straight Duct' and 'Elbow90'. Consider I draw a polyline with three XY coordinates i.e. (1,1) , (1,2) and (2,2) and insert rectangular block with desired 'Width'. Here are list of things I want from LISP program: 1. I want 'Straight Duct' to be inserted at mid-points of '(1,1) & (1,2)' and '(1,2) & (2,2)'. 2. Also, those inserted blocks should be rotated with an angle made by those points with horizontal so that 'Straight Duct' remains along the line. Example, Angle made by l
  17. Hi All, I'm very new to these so please be nice! Basically our company cuts heaps of metal panels. We draw each panel, do the cutting lists, nest and optimise them on sheets manually. I'm trying to save some time by creating a block that'll make life a bit easier. So I've currently got a block where you can input the height and width & it automatically adjusts. What I'd like to add is an atrribute? or a tag? where that little box pops up and you can input the height & width in there instead. Additionally I'd like the pop up box to include the panel # which is then shown on
  18. Hi. While trying to do a dynamic block of a timber flush door for a 150 and 200 mm wall, I am having a problem with the arc representing the door swing. When door is stretched, there is a gap appearing between the door panel and the arc and same also with the door frame. The more the door width increases, the more the gap. Trying to add parameter deform both door panel and the door frame at connection. Your help and input are greatly welcomed. Thanks. FlushDoor DynamicBlock.dwg
  19. Hi to all, I have a problem with a code found on the internet (the code make a similar job lisp BLOCK COUNTER ). Lisp works fine with simple blocks...but when you select blocks with attributes in the column preview section, the selected block with attribute does not show the values entered when the block was inserted. Above does not even show the real name of the initial block. Below you have a dwg file with my blocks but also the Lisp code.

  20. I'm trying to make a compass, with NSEW around it. I want to rotate the compass, as well as text, dependent on the direction, however keeping the text rotation at 0. I found a similar thread, but I can't for the life of me get it to work right. I think I'm on the right track, just missing something somewhere. Any help you guys can offer is appreciated. compass.dwg
  21. I have created a dynamic block for CMU, and it works great except for one thing. Please see image below, and the attached dwg file containing the block. Goal: Remove the 'Custom' option from the Lookup drop-down. Thank you for your time, in advance! CMU_8IN.dwg
  22. Hello I have no idea where to post this so I apoligize if this is the wrong forum, but I was wondering if the following was possible: the setup is that i have a series of blocks that have multiple attributes in them, meant to get them in a list through DATAEXTRACTION. However alot of these attributes will consist out of a code, which isn't usefull to most who will see the printed plans. Is it possible to link a FIELD (or text) to the attribute and display text depending on what the value of the attribute is? (i.e. I'd make the attribute itself invisible) It would be needed that both
  23. Hello, So the following is an example of a very nice homerun. You can bend it and it'll move the arrow accordingly, reducing time spent drafting during clean up. I'd like to make one similar to the one attached that will allow you to show the wires associated with the circuit. For those not electrically inclined, Long line = neutral Short line = hot/1phase Long line+dot = ground I think it would be nice if you could bend the homerun like the one attached but also be able to change it using a dynamic block type setup where you can chose different circuit types based on w
  24. Hey guys, So thanks to Lee Mac, I've got this stellar labeling LISP that works for a variety of situations. I need help throwing one more situation into the mix. I'd like it to have different behavior when labeling the block named "Symbol - Tree CRZ". Within this block, there is a User Parameter called "PercentImpacted" that uses an expression based on other user parameters to return a specific value. For this block, I need the leader text to say: "[Value from PercentImpacted parameter to 1 decimal place] + "% CRZ" Ex: I'd like the leader to work how the hatch compon
