The best and perhaps the only reason to upgrade to autocad 2006 is the
new dynamic blocks which are basically parametric drawings. I am
learning about them right now and I am making a whole new block library
that will cut down my standard detailing time to one third. It is a
whole new CAD concept for AutoCAD 2D detailing. If you use the AutoCAD
trial CD this is the thing to test. Everything else is just bells and
whistles. The Dynamic Blocks are very powerful.
I am using 2005 and have not yet upgraded to 2006, but your comments on the
Dynamic Blocks are very interesting. Two questions though,
1. Is there a batch program to convert all my existing blocks to Dynamic
2. If I make a drawing using the Dynamic Blocks would the drawing be
backward compatible to, say, Acad 2002?
