Dynamic blocks in AutoCAD are powerful tools that can significantly streamline your workflow by allowing you to create and modify complex designs more efficient
In AutoCAD, dynamic blocks are special types of blocks that offer enhanced capabilities and flexibility compared to regular blocks.
They allow you to create a single block that can change shape, size, or configuration using predefined parameters and actions.
Here's a breakdown of how you can create a dynamic block in AutoCAD


  • Familiarity with the basic tools, commands, and interface of AutoCAD is crucial. Understanding how to create, edit, and manage simple drawings lays a strong foundation.
  • Basic knowledge of AutoCAD
  • Need to install AutoCAD from Autodesk


In AutoCAD, dynamic blocks can be incredibly useful for creating MEP (Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing) systems as they allow you to create parametrically controlled blocks. They enable you to modify and manipulate objects with ease, adjusting their size, orientation, and other properties dynamically. Here's a general guide on creating a basic dynamic block for an MEP system:

Design the basic elements of your MEP system, such as pipes, valves, or electrical components, using standard AutoCAD commands.

Once your elements are drawn, convert them into a block by typing "BLOCK" in the command line. Specify a name for your block and select the objects to include in the block.

Type "BEDIT" in the command line and select the block you want to make dynamic.Use the Block Editor to add parameters and actions to your block. For example

Remember, creating dynamic blocks can get quite intricate, especially for complex MEP systems. It's often beneficial to plan out what parameters and actions you need beforehand to streamline the process.

AutoCAD's dynamic block feature is powerful but might require practice and experimentation to master. Additionally, exploring AutoCAD forums, tutorials, or specific MEP-related resources can provide valuable insights and techniques for creating efficient dynamic blocks tailored to MEP systems.

I have about 15 years of in Electrical CAD&REVIT Drafting experience out of which 10 years is in Middle East countries in various consulting organizations and contracting companies.

I have experience has included working on international high-profile projects. Drawings. starting from concept to construction phase. He is having expertise in drafting of Lighting,

LV, MV, Telecom, Fire alarm system and other low current system networks. Using BIM Tools since 2005.

Over the years, I have acquired good proficiency in Auto CAD and related software. I have work EXPIRIENCE IN REVIT MEP ELECTRICAL & NAVISWORK, Auto CAD, AutoCAD Civil 3D.

I am confident of preparing all kind of electrical building services drawings like Lighting layouts, Power layouts, Fire alarm system layouts, Coordination drawings etc.

Revit Electrical Training is an educational program designed to equip individuals with the skills and knowledge needed to effectively utilize Autodesk's Revit software for electrical design and documentation. This training typically covers various aspects of electrical systems, emphasizing how to use Revit's tools to create, analyze, and document electrical plans within building information modeling (BIM) projects.

The training often starts with an introduction to Revit's interface, tools, and fundamental concepts of BIM technology. Participants learn how to navigate the software and understand its specific features tailored for electrical design.
