1. -Today we will learn how to create a dynamic wall with adjustable length.
  2. -First, open the “Layer Properties” dialog box.
  3. -Then create 3 layers as shown.
  4. -Draw the wall according to the dimensions and layers shown.
  5. -We need to add a brick pattern to the wall with “Hatch” command.
  6. -We need to use ANSI32 pattern with scale 8 for this drawing.
  7. -Make sure the pattern is associated and press “Ok” button.
  8. -Now let’s assign the right layer for the wall pattern, and we have done our wall.
  9. -Let’s convert the wall into a block definition.
  10. -Type “Block” command and quickly set the base point of the block.
  11. -Select all the objects and press Enter.
  12. -Give a proper name to the block “brickwall” and press “Ok” button to exit.
  13. Select the block, right click, and select “Block Editor” from context menu.
  14. -What we want to do is stretch the wall from both sides so it can fit wherever we place it.
  15. -Active the “Linear” parameter from the ribbon.
  16. -And place it correctly.
  17. -Open properties palette, select the parameter and change the distance label to “Length”.
  18. Now we need to apply stretch action for each grip of the linear parameter.
  19. -From the action panel, select “Stretch” action.
  20. -Select the linear parameter we’ve placed before.
  21. -Specify parameter point to associate with action.
  22. -Then define the stretch frame and select all the objects.
  23. -Finally, place the “Action” location. You can place it anywhere, it’s just a symbol.
  24. -Now let’s quickly repeat the stretch action process for the other grip.
  25. -After finish, click the “Close Block Editor” and “Save” the changes.
  26. -Now we have created a wall that works perfectly. stretch it to lengthen and shorten it.
  27. -We’ll see how dynamic block can speed up a floor plan design process.
