Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Inserting blocks using the DesignCenter, part of Up and Running with AutoCAD LT.
- Another very neat tool in autoCAD and autoCAD LT…is a tool called DesignCenter.…Now, what DesignCenter allows you to do,…is it allows you to explore autoCAD LT drawings,…and bring content from one drawing to another,…utilizing a tool very similar to Windows Explorer.…Now, in order to bring up DesignCenter on the screen,…you're going to need to go to the View tab on the ribbon,…and it's in the Palettes panel again,…where Tool Palettes was from previous exercises.…
It's actually this little icon here: DesignCenter.…And this opens or closes the DesignCenter window,…so when I open that up,…what you'll find is that I've got this palette…that allows me to go to my Folders,…I can search my Folders for autoCAD content,…I can go to my Open Drawings for autoCAD content,…or my History of drawings,…if I've saved anything to my History.…Now, when you open up DesignCenter,…you need to use the Open Drawings tab.…And you'll notice I've got two drawings open…in the tabs at the top here.…
