Dynamic Wall Sample

Dynamic Wall Sample

-Today we will learn how to create a dynamic wall with adjustable length.

-First, open the “Layer Properties” dialog box.

-Then create 3 layers as shown.

-Draw the wall according to the dimensions and layers shown.

-We need to add a brick pattern to the wall with “Hatch” command.

-We need to use ANSI32 pattern with scale 8 for this drawing.

-Make sure the pattern is associated and press “Ok” button.

-Now let’s assign the right layer for the wall pattern, and we have done our wall.

-Let’s convert the wall into a block definition.

-Type “Block” command and quickly set the base point of the block.

-Select all the objects and press Enter.

-Give a proper name to the block “brickwall” and press “Ok” button to exit.

Select the block, right click, and select “Block Editor” from context menu.

-What we want to do is stretch the wall from both sides so it can fit wherever we place it.

-Active the “Linear” parameter from the ribbon.

-And place it correctly.

-Open properties palette, select the parameter and change the distance label to “Length”.

Now we need to apply stretch action for each grip of the linear parameter.

-From the action panel, select “Stretch” action.

-Select the linear parameter we’ve placed before.

-Specify parameter point to associate with action.

-Then define the stretch frame and select all the objects.

-Finally, place the “Action” location. You can place it anywhere, it’s just a symbol.

-Now let’s quickly repeat the stretch action process for the other grip.

-After finish, click the “Close Block Editor” and “Save” the changes.

-Now we have created a wall that works perfectly. stretch it to lengthen and shorten it.

-We’ll see how dynamic block can speed up a floor plan design process.
