AutoCad :: Rotate Attribute In Dynamic Block With Alignment Parameter?

Jan 23, 2014

Is it possible to make a dynamical block where the attribute is horizontal in combination of the alignment parameter (not rotate)? If I align to an arc the attribute need to stay at an horizontal position.

AutoCad 2D :: Rotate Parameter And Action To A Dynamic Block

Sep 17, 2013

I am attaching a rotate parameter and action to a dynamic block.

I get the "Specify base point" bit okay but I can't figure out what "Specify radius of parameter" does.

Do I have to include or exclude other parameters like Flip or Stretch? I get some weird results when I rotate an object with other parameters.

Is it possible to place the Grip in a specific place? It always seems to like to sit on top of another parameter name.

AutoCad :: Create Dynamic Block Using Stretch And Rotate Parameter

Apr 26, 2013

I have a block of a circle and a line coming from the left and right side quadrant of the circle to a common point (see pic). I want to create a dynamic block using a Stretch and Rotate parameter. You select the block, the Rotate point (grip) shows at the end of the two lines. I can grab that grip and rotate both lines and circle by moving this point around the screen, but cannot Stretch this point to a new location at the same time. How can I have the Rotation end point follow the Stretch parameter?

AutoCAD 2013 :: Adjust Circle Diameter From Attribute And Parameter In Dynamic Block?

Oct 17, 2013

I'm trying to create a dynamic block that uses a parameter and an attribute definition to determine the diameter of a circle in that block. I plan to export GIS points with diameter in the attribute table into a CAD file with the block definition. I'm having trouble figuring out how to set up the parameters to read to attribute definition and adjust the circle diameter. Using AutoCAD 2013

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Getting Parameter Value From Attribute

Nov 10, 2011

I need a rectangle block which on insertion prompts me for some data (name/tag/item number) and then displays it (this I can do). This is al pretty straightforward. But I also want to be able to fill in width and height and then have the block stretch to the correct size. So basically what I think I need is to have the value of a parameter refer to the value of an attribute. I've gotten it to work the other way around, where the attribute displays the size of one side of the rectangle (after stretching and regenerating), but I'd really like to have it working the other way.

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Attribute In Visibility Parameter

Dec 17, 2012

What I'm trying to do is have a graphic scale with a set list of scales the user can pick from. This was easy using the Visibility Parameter.

However, I want to add a "custom" vis state where, once they select this option, the attributed definition box will pop up and give them the option to input whatever scale they are using.Check out the attached .dwg to see what I've done so far (I just have the attributes on the "custom" vis state).

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Rotate Array Parameter Individually?

Aug 25, 2011

I am trying to create a block that has a stretch and array command, but I would also like to rotate each arrayed item indvidually. However I cannot select the rotate parameter as part of the array function, so the block end up only containing one rotate grip.

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Rotate Line With Parameter Constraints?

May 29, 2012

I've only got LT2008 at the moment, but this is a pet project that if my office upgrades me I want to finish.

Is it possible to rotate a line by using the length of a separate line? But the degrees of rotation need to be worked out by the length of the line

as in the following sum

angle of rotated line = (fixed number/360) * length of linear line

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Attribute Not Rotating And Stretch Parameter

Jul 21, 2011

I am very new to dynamic blocks. I am starting off learning the small stuff before I get to the larger more complex blocks to convert to dynamic.

I have a reference block I am trying to "master" all the functions we would like to see.

I have two major concerns.

1) Why can't I rotate this block (via rotate action) and have the attributes stay at angle zero? I thought I built the parameters and actions correct.

2) I haven't ran across anything that explains how to stretch 2 linear parameters at the same time with the same distance (ex: stretch both at .25, .5, .75)

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Insertion Point Of Attribute Changing Within Dynamic Block

Nov 21, 2011

I wish to create a dynamic block containing some attributes. These attributes are inside rectangles that can't be modified in length using linear parameters ; but the attribute has to be always in the middle of the rectangle. So, I draw a line inside the rectangle (in a hidden layer) and insert the attribute with center justification (not sure for the translation) that I place in the middle of this line ; then I put a coincidence constraint (not sure for the translation, but it's the first one) linking the middle of the line with the middle of the attribute.

But here's the problem : when stretching my rectangle, the insertion point of the attribute suddenly changes from "center" to "bottom left".

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Pass Attribute Values To Dynamic Block Parameters?

Dec 4, 2013

I am looking for a way to use the ATTIN/ATTOUT workflow to bring in data from an excel spreadsheet to drive the size of each of my block's instances. The block will be simple, a rectangle, with width and length parameters. For each entity in my excel/csv file these parameter values are spelled out. I know how to display these parameters in my attributes, but I don't know how, if I were to feed in these values, to drive the geometry. If there's a better way to take a list of width and length values to generate a series of blocks each with a rectangle containing its respective size.

AutoCad :: Alignment Parameter On Radiator Block

Jun 10, 2013

Alignment parameter I have on a radiator block.

I never created the block myself but it is pretty good so I use it. The block is a radiator within an alignment parameter which allows me to click the point and place it on a wall. The radiator then changes to suit the alignment of the line.

The only problem is sometimes the block aligns with the line but goes the wrong side. Therefore sitting the radiator within the wall lines and not in the room.

Is there a keyboard button or something which switches between the sides of the line you are aligning to so I can choose between the correct one.

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Rotate Attribute 180 Degrees About Its Center?

Jul 11, 2011

Attached is a dynamic block for a civil grid tick.  It's my first time creating a dynamic block so it's probably not the most efficent use of the dynamic parameters etc.

I have it setup with 4 visibility states to allow the northing and easting attributes to "rotate" about the center of the grid tick, to give options for readablity and/or text overlap.

What I wanted to add was figure out how to make the individual attributes flip 180 degrees about a point (roughly the center of the attribute).  Again this would be for readability.

AutoCAD Dynamic Blocks :: Alignment Flip - Backwards Attribute Text

Feb 6, 2009

I have been trying to convert my offices blocks to dynamic blocks and this one is giving me a hassle.

Essentially we have a line with an arrow at the end of it to show drainage pathways. I added a multiline attribute so we can add the percentage along the line with a mask. The line, arrow and attribute all need to be able to be aligned perpendicular or tangent to a given line. Everything looks great until the arrow flips sides to work from the other direction and then the text is mirrored backwards.

Mirrtext is set to 0 and I even tried it while in the Beditor to see if there was independent. Multiline or Regular attribute have the same effect as well as if they are locked position or not.

I tried adding a flip, but then the mirrortext settings work just fine and the text won't flip back.

AutoCAD LT :: Keeping Text Upright When Using Alignment Parameter In Block?

Mar 21, 2013

AutoCAD 2013LT

I have a simple little block that has an alignment parameter so I can pop it on a wall, pointing the way I need. I would like to add a line of text that will keep a rotation of 0deg no matter which way the block goes in. I can do it with bedit after the fact, but can I set the block up to insert correctly to start with?

AutoCad :: Dynamic Block Rotation Parameter

Sep 30, 2013

I am making a simple continuation block (attached) and I am trying to get it to have a rotation parameter along the polyline. I am able to do that, but the only issue is the flip parameter goes all weird when I do so (the text starts distancing itself from the polyline when stretched, rotated and flipped).

AutoCAD 2010 :: Dynamic Block Rotation Parameter

Jan 7, 2013

I have a block that I'm trying to convert for dynamic use.

In the first image, you'll see the items that I want to have rotatable in blue.  The items in red should NOT rotate.  That part seems to work fine.  But the items that do rotate don't behave as expected.

I created the rotate parameter selecting the center of the red circle as the base point.  Shouldn't that cause ALL the items to rotate about that center point?

As you'll see from the second image, the blue line rotates about some other point.

EDIT:  Well I guess it only does it if I have the blue horizontal line defined with a length constraint.  I also need to have that line dynamic--I need to make it longer/shorter.

I've attached a dwg file with the block in it--it's at the top of the block list (___SectMark2).

We have some dnyamic block share set of parameters, if we change a parameter's value, all block that reference this parameter should be change.we can do it by program.

but create user parameters for a dynamic block must be by hand, can we create a user parameter by code? another way is user global parameter. does AutoCAD Parametric function's user value can be share with dynamic block?

AutoCAD .NET :: Create New (user) Parameter For Dynamic Block?

Sep 25, 2012

I would like to add a new (user) parameter to a dynamic block within my code. I have noticed that this is possible manually. But couldn't find how to do this in .Net. When this parameter has been created it would be necessary to fill in a value. So the parameter can either be a general parameter, that can be adjusted later or a (user/dynamic) parameter specific for the block.

AutoCAD 2010 :: Dynamic Block Parameter Linking?

Dec 6, 2012

I was wondering if there is a way to link one parameter to another.  What i'm doing is creating a theater flat block that has adjustable length and width.  There are support members that are needed when it gets big enough.  Right now i have them set to a Visability parameter and have to select to turn them on and off in model space.  Is there a way to link the Visability so that it changes based on the Linear Distance parameter's lenth?

AutoCad :: Dynamic Block With Rotation Parameter Not Working With Attributes?

Mar 6, 2013

I have an interior elevation callout block with four arrows, noting the N, S, E, W interior wall elevations. I trick I use to rotate Text while keeping the Text oriented in the upright position is to place a Point Parameter at the center of the text then set the "Chain Actions" to Yes. Then I use the Move Action to tie the text to the Point Parameter. Next step is to use a Rotation Action to select only the Point Parameter, which rotates the Point Parameter and brings the text along with it, keeping the text oriented in the upright reading position always. As an example, think about a viewport tag with a North arrow, and the letter "N" at the arrow tip. When you rotate the arrow, the "N" position rotates with the arrow's point but always is oriented upright.

AutoCAD .NET :: Dynamic Block Attribute Move

Nov 16, 2008

I have a problem with using .Net to insert a dynamic block and set the size property. The attribute text does not move correctly on insert, but will if manually stretched after the fact. From my research the recommendation is to make sure the attribute definition is marked as "Locked".

I have an attribute definition inside a circle (classic door/window number), both the circle and attribute are included in the Action Selection Set, however only the circle moves correctly. It all works correctly if manually inserted/stretched.
