Description

In this set of tutorials we'll use parameters to create dynamic blocks in order to add windows to our elevation drawing. We'll get started by creating some blocks of a few window types from our design. We'll learn how to work with parameters and actions in order to create a flexible block. We'll apply stretch parameters as well as a list of multiple sizes for future projects. By the end of this course you'll have an understanding of how parameters work and you should be very comfortable with applying the stretch parameter and action. Software required: AutoCAD 2014.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there, I'm Pierre with Digital-Tutors, an Autodesk Authorized Publisher. In this set of tutorials, we'll use parameters to create dynamic blocks, so that we can add windows to our historic elevation drawing. We'll get started by creating some blocks of a few window types from our design. We'll learn how to work with parameters and actions, in order to create a flexible block. We'll apply stretch parameters, as well as a list of multiple sizes for our windows for future projects. By the end of this course, you'll have an understanding of how parameters and actions work, and you'll be very comfortable with working with our stretch parameter. So with that, I'm ready to get started, and I'll see you in the next lesson!
