Dynamic Blocks Stretching

Hello All.....

 

My office is consolidating thier block library by using Dynamic Blocks.

 

I have included a sample of a Palm Symbol we currently use.

I have tried using the scale action to adjust the diameter of the fronds but it also scales the thickness of the fronds, i don't want that....I just want them to lengthen outwards but not get fatter.

 

 

Any Ideas....

jmagarolas,
may be a simple way of building this block, and I'm not an expert in dynamic blocks,
let's try

1- I applied the "fix" constraint in all branches near the trunk

2- I applied the parameter set "linear stretch" to one branche

3- I applied the action "stretch" to the "linear stretch" parameter and the branche

4- I applied the "equal" constrint with the option "multiple" from this branch to all other branches


Hope that helps
