I am trying to make a structual span indicator dynamic block. It pretty much is a single line with two arrows, one on either end. In the middle of the line is a circle. So far i can create the stretch for both ends and the rotation is working too. My problem is the circle doensnt stay with the line. What am i missing or do i have to make is all a pline?


You can also stretch each side of the object using a stretch action with a .5 multiplier for each side. That way the core centre of the block remains unmoved as the stretch occurs.

If you chain the actions and remove 1 grip from teh linear parameter, you can also stretch both sides using only one grip. Both sides will stretch equally.
