Dynamic Block Creation (Distance Multiplier)
Viewed 23 times since Wed, Nov 13, 2019
Take the step shaft as an example, if we stretch the left part of the step shaft and the keyway still is at the center point of smaller diameter shaft after stretching. As the following picture shows:   Then, we use the “Distance Multiplier”... Read More
Dynamic Block Creation (Chain Action)
Viewed 22 times since Wed, Nov 13, 2019
If you want to realize symmetric stretch keeping keyway center no change and the length of smaller diameter shaft changes with stretch at the same time, how will realize that?1. Add Stretch for Step Shaft: Add stretch parameter and action for step... Read More

Parameters have an appearance similar to dimensions. Parameters also specify positions, distances, and angles for geometry in a block reference. When you add a parameter to a dynamic block definition, the parameter defines one or more custom... Read More

Actions define how the geometry of a dynamic block reference will move or change when the custom properties of the block reference are manipulated in a drawing. Move: Move action causes objects to move a specified distance and angle such as a point,... Read More

You use the Block Editor to define and modify the objects and behavior in a block definition. In the Block Editor, you add parameters and actions, which define custom properties and dynamic behavior.You can access the Block Editor by typing BEDIT... Read More
Dynamic Block Creation (Symmetrical Stretch)
Viewed 20 times since Wed, Nov 13, 2019
There is an easy way to realize the two-way stretch which is adding two stretch actions. Though it can realize a two-way stretch, the action of stretch is independent. The parameter needs some additional setup to realize the two-way symmetrical... Read More
Dynamic Block Creation (Flip)

When you use the "roughness symbol block" to label the spare parts, the symbol is sometimes already in the right position, however, the characters' direction is not right. We need to add the "character flip" function to receive the correct label... Read More
Dynamic Block Creation (Linear Stretch)
Viewed 14 times since Wed, Nov 13, 2019
Dynamic Block Creation (Linear Stretch) For example, during mechanical design, we often need to change the position as well as the dimension of the keyway. In this section, we will add a Linear stretch function for the keyway on the step shaft.1. Add... Read More
Dynamic Block Creation (Parameter Value Set)

For mechanical design, we often need to stretch the keyway to a certain length. Now, let us see how to realize the accurate stretch.1. Pick Linear Parameter: In block editor, pick the linear parameter, then click the entry frame which is on the right... Read More
