##### How to combine 2 dynamic blocks?
« on: March 11, 2015, 08:31:39 PM »
Dear All,
Can anyone tell me, how to combine 2 separate dynamic blocks to 1, without affecting their attribute definitions?

Expected output:
When we give dimensional constraint the combination should act as 1 single block and when we do data extraction off that drawing, the combination should appear as 2 different objects in the table.

Is it possible?

I tried, using group, but does not work with dimensional constraint.

Can't you connect them with a constraint?
The conclusion is justified that the initialization of the development of critical subsystem optimizes the probability of success to the development of the technical behavior over a given period.

It would be a good idea if you posted the 2 blocks you want to be associated.

looks like simply NESTING one block inside the other works here....

in the picture...the triangle (block 2) is nested inside thee square (block 1)
as you see in the extraction it shows TWO for block 2

Here is the attached file with blocks.

As huiz said,
I am using constraints to keep them together, but its like doing same thing in all sub-assemblies (about 50 No).

@mj
That is interesting.
I am happy to nest them together, but again I want them as separate blocks in data extraction table. I will need to nest the bigger section in attached dwg with different small section. So the data extraction should be able to combine same section from all nested blocks.

@mj,

Thanks for the hint. I works well when I nest the 2 blocks.

Regards.
