Glad you got it to work Thumbs up! Just noticed though, as you stretch it wider the swing direction lines shrink? I moved the stretch boxes .1 away from the centre to fix it.
Apparently not... the flip still stuffs it up, hang on a tick ill take another look
Im glad im not the only one who think you should be able to choise which parameters effect a chained one. I think the chained parameter thing must just be the common term, i think it makes more sense than chain action, as you are appling the chain properties to the parameter not the action, but thats just me. I was going to start a topic on that issue yesterday but got sidetrackedOriginally Posted by artisteroi
I think the most time effective thing to do is remove the flip and just use the CAD command to mirror the block i know it kinda defeats the purpose of dynamic blocks but it would be easier
the parameters are chained to whichever actions are affecting them. that's how you associate a chained relationship.Originally Posted by artisteroi
chained parameter is correct. what's wrong is i've heard of some calling it a "chain parameter" (they keep forgetting to add ed) there's no such thing...Originally Posted by Mr Cory
the action of the manipulated parameter affecting the "chained parameter" IS referred to as the "chained action", or what i actually like to call it because it makes more sense to me, the "chaining action". ~shrug~ that's the methodology that i've been using anyway....
you know, i've been looking at your block for a while now, and you really aren't doing anything different than what's found in Will's DB's, you're just doing it different. (i still don't get the "dummy" parameters...)Originally Posted by artisteroi
diag. line stretches and flips have been a struggle for as long as i've been doing this... i like your rotation idea tho! it's worth a shot in my book.Originally Posted by artisteroi
It WORKS!!!! IT WORKS!!!!
How about posting the block so we can see what you did ?
what file size limit? i've got some that are over 800kb in here. I usually perform a "Purge > All", and that takes care of a bulk fo the file size....Originally Posted by artisteroi
cool block! i like the rotate option in leiu of the flip for the swing...
oh, and unless it's a brand name of some sort, there's no "h" in "Amish" (sounds like there should be, but isn't. i asked one...)
