Has anyone come up with a solution to this? We would like to create custom stamps as well. Custom stamps that have boxes that can be checked or unchecked, maybe a date field and name field. We would use these stamps as approval stamps for reviewing shop drawings.
Dynamic stamps has been noted on the product wishlist.
For Autodesk Design Review 2011, here's a video showing how to create custom symbols: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s1hulhdyYSg
Although this isn't the editable stamp you're looking for in Design Review, Autodesk Design Review 2012, available for download now, allows you to paste copied images directly on to a 2D sheet.
One workaround is to setup a PowerPoint slide creating "stamps" with the desired formatting and insert the Date & Time object (set the object to update automatically in PowerPoint). Then, as you need to markup designs, open the PowerPoint slide and copy the PowerPoint object and paste them into the 2D sheet being reviewed. You can see this done quickly in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeCLcyWB75w
Hope it helps,
Considering that it's been a year, has there been any progress on creating dynamic stamps in DR2013? I've been poking around the new version and don't see anything new in that regard.
This should be really easy to implement, and if Autodesk is hoping that people will use DR to review drawings (shop drawings during CA for instance) then this needs to be understood as an essential functionality of the software.
A symbol is not a stamp. A stamp is not a symbol. Why is it when someone asks about stamps, someone else gives an answer about symbols. The questioner, like me , is looking for a way to make a custom STAMP. Symbols are useless for this.
Dynamic stamps were added to Autodesk Design Review 2013. These stamps automatically can include your user name, time, date, and filename to 2D drawings.
Can you provide more details regarding what you want to do?
Dynamic stamps are added to a drawing like any other stamp: Click Markup & Measure tab > Stamps & Symbols panel > Stamps drop-down. The dynamic stamps are located at the bottom of the list.
