Ideas for documentation of dynamic blocks?
« on: March 09, 2014, 01:01:23 PM »
I created dynamic blocks for a client, and now I'm looking for a good a comfortable way to document them in a kind of report / manual.

There are two types of audience:

a) The user:
He needs to know how the block looks like, which grips and switches exist and what are the results.

b) The CAD-Manager:
He needs also the info about parameters, actions, dependencies and so on.

I saw that "Plot" does not work in Blockeditor; now the next options are

a) make a print-screen
b) the user should take a look at the options.

Both are possible, but not the kind of high-quality-professional-support and they will lost its value on the way "from client to colleague to partner-company to sub-contractor to external temporary worker ..."

I believe that there's (nearly) no room for hope, but anyway:

Any ideas? Any existing solutions?

Good idea to document the blocks.
I have several that are a bit complicated & can be screwed up if modified without following the original procedure when it was created.
Hope someone has a good answer.
