FIA Free CAD Block – Dynamic Scale Bar

Loft Conversions

Learning new skills with SourceCAD

I recently signed up for an online course to learn how to make dynamic blocks. I have always seen the benefit of using dynamic blocks, as a great time saver, but never got around to learning how to do it myself.

The course from Jaiprakash at TheSourceCAD is excellent. His tutoring is clear and well thought out. I would highly recommend any of his courses if you are looking to improve your AutoCAD skills.

So, I have now put together my first dynamic block. It’s nothing fancy – but hopefully it will be useful!! Scale bars are a constant head ache for a lot of people, so hopefully these scale bars will make life a little easier. They are at scales of 1:50, 1:100, 1:200 and 1:500. All you need to do is insert the block into your drawing in the paperspace, (not model space) so that you can use the scale bar on your layout sheets. Being the first dynamic block I have created, I’m sure there is room for improvement, so if you have any suggestions I would be happy to hear, and if you want me to make any changes to them I can do so!

Feel free to download this dynamic scale bar block, completely free. Enjoy!
