Dynamic Blocks help/hint
fiddleback143 posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputI'm trying to cut down on the number of visibility states for a block under development. Currently I have a rectangle, 4'x2', with other lines that I don't need to modify. What I want to do is to stretch the rect into a 4'x4' square and add 2 circles in the corner. I have no problem with the stretching part it's adding in the two circles that I don't even know where to start. This element will cut in half the visibility states that I need to make.
Dynamic Blocks able to be table driven?
akchristian posted a topic in AutoCAD Drawing Management & OutputHi. I am new to this forum but not necessarily new to cad. I have been working with dynamic blocks lately and I am fascinated with the tool and its capabilities. However, something that I have not been able to figure out and not sure if its this is doable ----> ???Can you make a dynamic block table driven, say from an excel table??? -For example, lets say you have a dynamic block with parameters/actions set up that allow you to set the width, length, height, distance from edge, # of object arrays, etc. Rather than grabbing each grip and specifying the desired dimension, can you make it so the dynamic block is table driven? such as, where you might have a list of desired dimensions (say in excel) and you want to quickly input them into a table in autocad, so that the dynamic block will adjust to those dimensions???
