I would like to be able to create a dynamic block for a duct riser that can accommodate various sizes (ie: 12x12 , 16x28)
what I have tried is a stretch parameter/ action but the hatch is not cooperating.
Any suggestions please
this will need to have visibility states to allow for supply , return and exhaust as well as up and down features.
Rise and Drops for AMEP objects are controlled by the rise drop styles in style manager under each object type. The rise drop styles use acad blocks and are scaled to fit the size of the duct. You can assign different blocks to each condition, rise / drop, tee, elbow, etc. You can also save the styles and assign them per each system. to allow you to have different systems with unique symbols. The rise drops styles may not support dynamic blocks, honestly never tried it, because the code scales the block in both x and y to match the size. Solid hatches are supported as well as centerlines. Please refer to help on rise drop styles for more information.
