Creating a dynamic grid

Using ACADLT 2008


Im looking for a way to automate my drafting tasks, and this time I want to automate the creation of structural steel grid quickly as possible.


I was thinking about creating a dynamic block with all my drawing needs, and then use an array action to multiply it as I go, but I cant use it since the cell size inside the block is static


Another idea I had is to create a dynamic block with fixed number of cell and columns, I gave to the dividers a starch action with divided multiplier. its working but its not practical because wit this method I have to create another million of grids(I attach this block )


Is there something I can do?

Will a custom hatch do what you need to?  Simply draw the outline and fill it with a hatch.
