2D+3D AutoCAD Manual For PC Dynamic block feature has opened many possibilities to enhance your AutoCAD libraries and your workflow.

How long does it take to draw a simple floor plan with AutoCAD? Let’s say a typical rent office plan, not much walls to be drawn, plenty of open spaces. What if I say only need a few minutes? Includes annotation, door schedule, column schedule, and wall schedule? Drawing, not designing.
The secret is prepare your template, create some reusable content definitions, some customization, use the proper tools, then you are ready to rock! I will post several tutorials to prepare them, and will close this series with using all of them in creating our plan! In this topic, we will create a wall definition with dynamic block. You will see how dynamic block can speed up the design process.
