A quick way to create a block in AutoCAD 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. For this reason, inserting a title block into the AutoCAD drawing is essential for tracing (printing) drawings, especially in a production environment. A title block is used to name the part, the time and the author of the drawing.
Basically, it provides important information for when the document is printed. 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. When you add dynamic properties to a simple block so that you can change its geometry and property for your individual reference, you get a dynamic block. After selecting the drawing, select Blocks in the object type and you now have a collection of blocks that you can insert into the drawing by simply dragging and dropping.
You can choose the Delete option to delete the block and the attribute elements, since you will insert the block later, with its attributes. By default, it's set to (8.5 x 11 inches), so be sure to set it to match the size of the title block template. They save drawing time and space, not only because they are blocks (and each instance occupies the space its name needs), but if you decide to edit one, all instances of a drawing will reflect the changes made. The blocks used in the drawing are called block references, and if the block is modified, all of its references change automatically.
You can create a block library made up of the pieces you need many times in your workday. The tool palette has many common blocks (especially dynamic blocks) that you can use directly in the drawing by simply dragging and dropping them in the drawing. But even if you've been using blocks for years, I think you'll find the links at the end with more advanced tips useful. If you want to see how to update a block, explode and modify the computer block by stretching the monitor one inch on each side.
These blocks can be stored in a separate folder and even on a network so that all writers have access to them. When you insert a block, AutoCAD stores only the name of the block, its location (insertion point), scale, and rotation.
