Free CAD Blocks – Dynamic windows and doors

Here is another set of free cad blocks from the First In Architecture Cad Block database. We hope you find them useful. Please feel free to download them. We will endeavour to continue building our free autocad block library – if you have any suggestions for useful content please get in touch.

This set of cad blocks have been very kindly given to me by Gavril, who has been testing out his skills at creating dynamic blocks. He has done an amazing job and created dynamic window blocks, with multiple pane options, and adjustable sills, and window head options. He has also created a dynamic door block in plan, again with adjustable sizes, and easy mirror options. This selection demonstrates how powerful simple dynamic blocks can be. I look forward to having a go at creating some myself, and offering some tutorial videos to show you how!

A special mention to Jamie Henderson who created the original door block – you can check out his work here: Jamie Henderson

Please note these blocks were created in an Autocad educational version, so will be stamped, and will stamp any file you load them into.

  1. hi i love the block you do but the measurements for USA or imperial are wrong walls in USA are 4.5 for interior, exterior are 6 inches and doors are for exterior (like front & back doors) are
    36″ EXT.DOOR
    36″ INT. DOOR
    32″ INT. DOOR
    30″ INT. DOOR
    28″ INT. DOOR
    AND if you could make them with the wipeout in the entry of the door spaces and make a hidden line for the openings arc where the door opens

    and if you would put them in dynamic blocks like 5 different blocks in the same block of different objects like doors and bathroom (toilet sinks tubs and showers this is how we are doing it in USA I am a student in Drafting and Design but this will save time and as I am always told time is money… if there is anything else you want to know about USA and our measurements just ask have a great day and bless you for all you have done on your site its very good.

    • Hi Amy, thank you for your comments – its really good to hear from you. Please note firstly that the dynamic blocks were very kindly donated to me from a reader and were his first attempt at creating dynamic blocks – a pretty good job if you ask me.
      I now make the blocks available to US readers by doing a simple conversion to imperial – so that when they are imported into a drawing they are closer to being the right size. Obviously metric to imperial direct conversion is not completely accurate but it does mean that the blocks are more available to all, and that people can more easily adjust the size if they are closer to the right scale.
      I take on board your comments about door sizes – perhaps I will do a separate set of blocks to those sizes – I’m sure that will be helpful to everyone.
      I would be interested to know if you have a specific book or manual that describes the drafting standards in the US?
      Thanks again for your comments – always appreciate feedback. Regards, Emma

  2. Hi Amy,
    Thanks for your comments — always appreciate suggestions and ideas. The window and door blocks do actually utilise wipeouts (that’s something I should have pointed out to Emma at the time in fact) and so you’ll want to make sure that the wipeout borders are turned off so that you don’t have unsightly outlines in your drawings. You’ll then have the benefit of doors that snap to walls quickly and simply – like placing doors in “The Sims” effectively.

    As regards sizes: We are based in England, so the stock sizes/conventions are different and these blocks were modelled in metric, based on Jamie Henderson’s work. Until a full Imperial/US version is made, however, the block called “w.o Values” will allow you to input whatever dimensions you require.

    Hope that answers a few things and all the best with your course.
