The last thing I want to discuss is how to create a block in AutoCAD quickly and easily. First, press CTRL+SHIFT+C on the keyboard and then adjust the cursor to the “insertion point” where you want the block to be defined. Then, select the objects from which you want to create a block and press ENTER. Creating blocks in AutoCAD is very easy.
First you must draw all the parts that will form your block. Remember to draw all the objects on layer “0”. When you are ready to create the block, select the Create button from the Block section of the Insert tab of the ribbon menu. The AutoCAD simple block definition is an entity or group of entities joined together that work together as individual 2D or 3D objects.
It is composed of lines, edges, and vertices drawn on a paper or model space. You can use the block replication feature to save time by creating blocks that appear multiple times in the drawing. Blocks also help maintain consistency and reduce the size of the drawing file. According to the official AutoCAD site, the dynamic blocks of AutoCAD consist of rules and controls that determine the appearance and behavior of the block when it is modified or inserted into a drawing.
By configuring it, you can insert the block into other drawings with different units and scale automatically. When inserting an external block, use the same INSERT command that you used earlier and use the Browse button to navigate to the folder where you saved the block. Now that you know how useful a block is, you should know that there are times when you need to break down a block. You can also force it to scale correctly when inserted into a different drawing as an external block and add a hyperlink for an Internet reference if you want.
You can create two blocks, each with its own layer properties, or you can take advantage of some really interesting functionality in AutoCAD. In the “Behavior” section, you can activate the “Annotative” function if you want the block to be displayed in scale and match the orientation of the block with the design. Because there is only one block in the drawing, its name is shown (in some drawings, you may have a long list of block names to choose from). When creating blocks, if the objects in the block are drawn on layer zero, they will adopt the properties of the current layer when they are inserted.
These blocks can be stored in a separate folder and even on a network so that all writers have access to them. The second reason is the size of the file, since the use of blocks significantly reduces the size of the saved drawing, which in turn helps many of the drawing tasks to be done more quickly. Select whether you want to create the block from the entire drawing or from the objects selected in the drawing. Draw the following objects to create what you need for the computer block (seen from above of the keyboard and monitor) You don't need to size the computer.
The DWG source file containing the lines of the block will be saved in the location of your choice. I have a question, can you ask another one like this? But instead of creating a block, you explain how to insert a block. The difference here is that the block will be converted into a separate external drawing file for use in other CAD drawings.
