Creating a new block

Recommended Posts



I am planning to create a block of UK electrical symbols for my own use. I had planned to create a drawing of each symbol I would be using and save them.

My question is, do I save them as DWG files in a folder then copy/paste to insert them? I think there must be an easier way but as I am new to Autocad and teaching myself I dont know it. :oops:

Is there an easier way to create a block ?


Thanks in advance.

the old way is to write each to a dwg of its own and then INSERT that into drawings as required. (Check INSERT in the help). It is now easier to keep all your blocks in e drwing and use PALETTEs or DESIGN CENTER. (Check help)
