Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Replace Block, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2016 New Features.
- As in any project, designs are prone to change.…Sometimes, modifying a block to reflect a change…is not the best solution.…Occasionally it's better to just…replace the block completely.…Previously, we would have to duplicate…the original block, then go into the block editor…and edit the original so that all the…instances of the block changed.…This is not efficient and can cause problems…later if the original block is inserted by someone…looking for the old geometry.…Now, we have a much more straightforward tool…in block replace.…
Here in my drawing, I have a series of chairs…in different rooms.…My company has decided a different chair…is better and more attractive.…So, we need to change out all of the chairs…with the new model.…I'm going to go to Tools…Express Tools…and Replace Block.…From here, I can select the original…or the block I want to replace.…In this case, the old chair.…And here I can replace it with the new chair.…
At the bottom of the dialog box is a…check box for purged, unreferenced items…when finished.…
