Author Shaun Bryant shows you how you would use a DWG file to store blocks.
- [Instructor] We're staying in the Doors.dwg file…and what we're going to have a look…at now is how we use DWG files to store blocks.…Now, this might be your standard blocks.…It might be your dynamic blocks.…It doesn't matter which.…It might be a combination of the two.…But, the whole idea of this DWG file being called doors…is you're going to keep all of your door blocks…in that doors drawing for this particular chapter.…So, in the previous video, we set…up our standard door block, this one here.…
When I click on it, you can see in the properties…over on the right there, it's called DOOR - Standard.…Now, I'm going to hit escape to deselect it.…Now, it may be that you want a different door block…that isn't standard so, it might just have an angled line,…for example, representing the door swing.…So, what we'll do is we'll select our block here,…like so.…I'll then right click on the mouse…and what we'll do, we'll do copy selection.…And, what I'll do is use the bottom left corners,…the base point, just drag it across horizontally…
