creating a block that make decisions while moving
« on: July 17, 2017, 05:23:58 AM »

hi
it is possible creating a dynamic block that makes decisions while moving?

for example, creating 2 rectangles, and say :

if the left rectangle width is becoming more than 100cm start stracing also the second rectangle?

AutoCAD blocks are relatively basic, but this sounds like an array function?

I'll go on a limb and say it's not entirely possible with generic AutoLISP. Should be do-able in .NET but you are looking at a highly specialized and custom routine which is going to cost a pretty penny ($$$).

To the uninitiated it sounds like a candidate for grread/ grvecs etc.

is there any other package that knows how to do it by accident?
