Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. last week introduced its "Learning AutoCAD Blocks and Dynamic Blocks Tutorial," a targeted course focused on AutoCAD's powerful block command and its applications for speeding up the design process.
The AutoCAD block command allows designers to create and save object groups and styles. In its most basic function, the command allows users to define a selected group of objects as a block, for instance the chairs in a classroom, and then re-apply the block in as many instances as necessary.
However, there are a variety of advantages in AutoCAD blocks beyond this basic function, including applying attributes to blocks and working with dynamic blocks, that make it an valuable tool for AutoCAD designers, especially those working in a company environment.
Infinite Skills' "Learning AutoCAD Blocks and Dynamic Blocks," offers a concise and focused exploration of how to use this powerful feature to increase speed and efficiency in the design process.
Course author Shaun Bryant is a training consultant with 20 years of hands-on experience as an AutoCAD user in civil and structural engineering practice. He has worked for Autodesk in sales support and training, and is currently an Autodesk Approved Instructor, holding AutoCAD 2013 Certified Professional status. Bryant currently provides AutoCAD training and consultancy professionally.
Following a brief introduction to how blocks can be used to distribute content, Bryant begins by explaining how to set up blocks, exploring the BLOCK command, as well as working with objects, behaviors, and settings.
The course then covers block attributes, going in-depth with the ATTDEF command, and moving on to managing, finding, and extracting block attribute data. Bryant then continues with chapters covering how to edit blocks and block attributes, before looking in detail at working with dynamic blocks.
"In this course," Bryant says, "I teach you how to increase your efficiency with AutoCAD by using blocks and dynamic blocks. Blocks are a great feature that allow you to be more productive, quicker, and smarter, in using AutoCAD."
