Parametric Constraints were added to AutoCAD 2010, and offer a powerful toolset for authoring AutoCAD dynamic blocks. Now if you’re like many AutoCAD users I have the chance to chat with, each of these topics on their own sound like something you might need a PhD to manage, combine them and you may as well equip your DeLorian with a flux capacitor – a far cry from super simple. While it’s absolutely possible to create Parametric Dynamic Blocks where that may be an accurate statement, the whole process is far easier than it sounds thanks to several well-developed tools inside AutoCAD. Have a look at the video above to see how to apply Parametric Constraints to create a dynamic block for a simple L desk where one side is half the length of the other.
