Author Shaun Bryant shows you how to copy blocks from AutoCAD drawings.
- [Instructor] We're staying in our Doors.dwg file…and as you can see we've got our two different door blocks…available that we've created in the previous videos.…We've got our standard door…with the arc forming the door-swing,…and we've got our angled door…with that line forming the door-swing.…Now we can takes these blocks from our Doors.dwg file,…our storage drawing, into a new drawing if we want to.…Let's have a look at that and see how that works.…I'm going to go up to the top of the screen…and I'll click on new here, and as you can see,…it prompts me to utilize whatever AutoCAD template…I want to use to open my new drawing.…
I'm going to use acadiso.dwt…because it's a metric millimeters template.…So I click on open, and there's my new AutoCAD drawing.…You can see the tab there on top of the screen, Drawing 3.…Now what we're going to do is we're going to jump back…to our doors tab, because obviously that drawing…is still open in the AutoCAD for maxation as well.…So let's have a look now at copying our standard door…
