Since there was quite a lot of interest in my last free AutoCAD block offering on the site, I decided to release another! This time in the form of a hand-drawn, fully-shaded tree in plan symbol that can be used anywhere.
I got the idea for drawing a few of these after seeing hand-drawn landscaping plans and wishing I could do something similar using just AutoCAD. Turns out: you can! Using true line weights and carefully selecting true colours, this block can be stretched, scaled and rotated to suit without losing its look due to pentypes or weights.
The other day I was trying to find a standard dynamic block for single leaf doors – ideally in metric and imperial sizes – I couldn’t find one anywhere so I decided to make my own.
I quite enjoy making dynamic blocks in AutoCAD – sad I know, but in the long run it seems to save the office time if they can reuse these components, rather than having hundreds of alternative sizes saved on file.
The block itself comes in standard metric and imperial sizes – with a lookup for the structural openings, as well as references for the leaf sizes. It can also be tweaked to fit almost all openings and wall thicknesses with AutoCAD’s parametric stretching.
This block is free, but if you find it useful and want to buy me a coffee, please feel free 🙂
