As you may have noticed, there hasn’t been much activity here on The CAD Geek since AU. The reason for that is quite simply I have been on vacation since December 13. Today however was the end of my three-week break from the office, and gasp; AutoCAD. As much as I love to play with and explore the depths of AutoCAD, I must say my vacation was a much needed break from CAD.
But now that I have returned to the office and the holidays are behind us, I shall also return to this, my humble corner of the blogosphere. I must admit, after taking a 3-week break from AutoCAD it was hard to think up a blog topic, but I remembered a post from August titled “Dynamically Aligning Your Blocks”. It was with that post I realized how few posts I had about the most versatile Dynamic Blocks.
It’s a fundamental law of AutoCAD Blocks, blocks shall have an insertion point. And frankly, this is a good thing. Sure, AutoCAD needs to know this location so it can remember where you placed the block, but face it – you need this insertion point too. When drawing blocks we’re taught to place this insertion point in a meaningful location. Maybe it’s the face of a curb in a civil plan, or a wall in an architectural plan.
