Author Shaun Bryant shows you how to use Copy with Base Point to copy AutoCAD blocks.
- [Instructor] In the previous video we looked…at using the copy command on the clipboard option…on the right hand mouse menu in auto CAD…to copy our standard block into that Drawing 3…that you can see at the top of the screen there.…So at the moment I'm still in Drawing 3…like we were in the previous video…and you can see our two standard blocks in there…where we brought one of the blocks in,…copying it to the clipboard and then pasting it in…and then I showed you that you can insert that block…within the Drawing3.dwg file.…
What we're going to do now is go back to the doors tab,…up at the top of the screen, like so.…And I'm going to use a different copy command this time,…it's called copy with base point.…Now you will have noticed in the previous video,…when we pasted into Drawing 3…it used the standard base point of our auto CAD block…that bottom left point that we selected…when we created the block.…What I'm going to do this time is use copy with base point.…It's a different tool for copying.…I'm going to select our angled door block this time.…
