Dynamic Block - Polar Array Action

Vincent from back east (I think) asks:

  • Description:I want to create a polar array in a dynamic block. The normal array command allows polar/rectangular types of arrays, but the polar array parameter set in the block authoring palette does not provide this flexibility. It only allows rectangular array definitions. Please instruct me on how I might create a polar array action in a dynamic block.

Thanks for the question. I think you are out of luck trying to get a polar array action using Dynamic blocks. You weren't specific on what you are trying to do. If it's not too many objects you are arraying you could possibly use visibility states to show the objects and a rotate parameter to space the objects. If that doesn't work for you I think you will have to go the programming route.
