dynAmIc BlOcKs

I just started looked at dynamic blocks. Yeah, I am behind the curve. Well I curious if a 3D block could be modified into a dynamic block? All of the dynamic blocks that I see are 2D.

The thing is I do not know anyone that works in 2D and I haven't worked in 2D in years. I am not knocking it, it's just that well I thought everyone went to 3D years ago.

So far, only 2D is supported (unless something has changed in 2010 - which I don't have installed).

You can make a dynamic block using 3D objects but not all actions will work.  You cannot stretch them, for instance, but an array will work as it's just copying the objects with a base point.

The thing that sucks is that, unless something has changed, you can't 3dorbit in the block editor or have actions work in any plane other than XY

yup, I have seen some neat 3d DB's using 3d polymesh faces, but they could only be modified in 2 of 3 planes.
