BotM – Louver Section and Elevation

This month’s BotM is a bonus 2 for 1 download.  The louver section can be adjusted to any height via a stretch action.  The louver vanes are then added via an array action to fit within your specified height.  The louver elevation uses stretch actions to set the width and height and includes a solid white hatch behind the linework to block out whatever exterior finish is behind.  Use the draworder command to bring the louver to the front and there will be no need to trim finishes behind.  Head on over to the downloads page to grab these louver blocks and others! Also, if you like this block, feel free to check out my entire collection of dynamic blocks on Autodesk’s Exchange Apps Service.

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.
