Dynamic blocks can be time saving aspects of your AutoCAD drawings. This tutorial walks you through how to make a dynamic door CAD block and window CAD block that can stretch and flip as needed.

How to Make a Dynamic CAD Block in AutoCAD

CAD blocks can make the production of your drawing so much faster and easier. But have you ever tried making dynamic blocks?

Dynamic blocks have the capabilities to stretch, flip, rotate, or move with the click of a button rather than a typed command. They can save you time and prevent the tedium of editing and refining your drawing.

In today’s video tutorial, I walk you through creating a basic door CAD block that has the ability to flip swings and stretch frame thicknesses and a basic window CAD block that allows you to stretch to fill the opening. When you take the time to create a dynamic CAD block with these options, you’ll make the process of adding doors to a basic floor plan quick and easy.

Commands covered in the video:

  • BLOCK
  • BEDIT
  • POLYLINE
  • ARC
  • Block Parameters
  • Block Actions
