Author Shaun Bryant explains how to add regular blocks in the Block Editor in AutoCAD.
- [Instructor] So we are staying in our Wall Sink.dwg file.…And as per the previous video,…at the end of the previous video, we went…into the block editor, ready to start creating…our wall sink two dynamic.…Now you can see we are in the block editor.…We've got the block editor menu at the top of the screen.…Before you do anything else, go down to the status bar,…bottom right, here, and you want to right click…on your object snaps, and just make sure…that that mid point snap is selected there, like so.…
Now you notice it has gone slightly off the screen.…That's purely due to the resolution of my screen,…but you can see that my midpoint snap is on there,…just in that bottom right corner there.…Just make sure that you click on midpoint,…and you've got the little tick there…so that you know it's on.…And then just hit escape a couple of times to lose the menu.…Now, what we want to do is place the regular blocks…into our block editor.…Now, the good thing is all of our regular AutoCAD commands…work in the block editor.…
