Author Shaun Bryant explains what an AutoCAD block is.
- We're starting a new chapter now…in our Using Dynamic Blocks for AutoCAD for Mac course.…And what I'm going to do is I'm going to introduce you…to the AutoCAD block, and also the AutoCAD dynamic block,…as well, so that you're aware of the differences…between the two, and how they reside…in an AutoCAD for Mac DWG file.…Now, to do that, we've got a new file for you…from the library, you can see the name of it…there at the top of the screen.…It's called Blocks.dwg so make sure you've downloaded that…from the library so that you can use it…to follow along with the videos in this particular chapter.…
So as I said, I'm going to introduce you…to the AutoCAD block,…if you don't know them already, obviously.…Now, the blocks themselves are basically groups…of AutoCAD objects converted to a block…to form what I would call a real world object.…So you'll notice on the screen,…we've got two doors.…Now, they do look virtually identical, don't they?…And if I go and hover over one of them,…let's say I hover over this one,…you can see it highlights as a block there,…
