Author Shaun Bryant shows you how to create a standard AutoCAD block.
- [Instructor] We're starting another chapter now…in our using Dynamic Blocks in AutoCAD for Mac course.…Now, what we're going to look at in this particular chapter…is using standard AutoCAD blocks.…And we're going to do that to get you used to using…a standard AutoCAD block first,…and then work our way up to creating…and using Dynamic blocks as well.…So we've got a new drawing for you.…You can download it from the library…to use to follow along with the videos in this chapter.…You can see the name of the drawing…at the top of the screen there.…
It's called Doors.dwg, nice and easy to remember.…So download that from the library…to follow along with the videos.…Now, what we're going to do in the first video…is we're going to create a standard AutoCAD block.…So you'll notice in our Doors drawing there,…we've got two simple AutoCAD objects that make up a door.…We've got a rectangle there, and we've also,…you'll notice it's got an arc there as well.…Now if I select either of these,…you'll notice they're on the layer zero…
