BotM – W Shapes Dynamic Block

What is BotM you ask?  Block of the Month I say.  On the first of each month there will be a new dynamic block available for download from CAD Jedi.  Let’s kick of BotM with a dynamic block that comprises all of the standard steel W shapes in the AISC manual.  This block makes use of a block table combined with constraints to draw each size of W shape.  It also has a visibility lookup to show or not show a dashed line offset 1/2″ from the steel to represent fireproofing spray. Head on over to the downloads page to grab our inaugural BotM! Also, if you like this block, feel free to check out my entire collection of dynamic blocks on Autodesk’s Exchange Apps Service.

Take a look at the quick clip below to see this months block in action as well as inside the block editor…

Until next time…
