Author Shaun Bryant explains how to use the WBLOCK command to copy AutoCAD blocks.
- [Instructor] In the previous video,…what we did was we looked at using the copy with base point…to bring in our angled door block here.…Now what we're going to look at now is another command…in AutoCAD called wblock or write block,…as in you're going to write as in like with a pen a block…to its own DWG file.…Now we don't actually need drawing three for that,…so what you can do is go up to the top…of the screen here now.…We don't need drawing three anymore.…
It was just a blank drawing that we were utilizing…to copy our blocks into.…So click on the little cross there on the file tab like so.…It'll alert you, do you want to save the changes…to drawing three?…Now, you can say, don't save to that.…Just be aware as well though that your drawing,…your blank drawing, might not be drawing three.…AutoCAD just picks up the…next available blank drawing number,…so it might be drawing four, drawing one, drawing two.…You don't need to save the changes to it anyway,…so just click on don't save, and that goes away,…and disappears, and you're back now…
