    Question Can somebody supply me with an example of a dynamic block that uses lookup parameters

    Can somebody supply me with an example of a dynamic block that uses
    lookup parameters?

    I am thinking that I can use a lookup parameter, however, I am having
    some trouble visualizing how they work.

    this roof pitch block is one,
    the alum. door block in this post is another.

    they work by "choosing" a list of pre-assigned values assigned to whatever parameters you have listed in the "lookup" (I sure hope this helps...)
    Sometimes, i get lost in my own thoughts and need to ask directions to find my way back.

    I see how that works. Thanks for posting.

    I bet I can figure out what I need to do.

    did you right-click on the link and select 'save target as'? that's the typical way that I download... (if I'm barkin up the wrong type of foliage, feel free to ignore me)

    have you tried right-clicking to bring up a shortcut menu and then selecting 'save-as' option? (BTW, on your own posts, you can edit them, that button is right next to the "quote" button on lower right of post screen.)
