Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Replace Block, part of AutoCAD: Express Tools Workflow.
- [Narrator] So we're staying in the O2_Blocks drawing,…and what I've done is I've used the Undo command…to undo what I did in the previous video…where I exploded the attributes.…I'll do that for every single video in this particular…chapter, so that I can start with the original blocks.…See, the block is back to normal, it's all one block.…And I've just used Undo up here on the Quick Access toolbar…to undo what I did previously.…So, we're going to look at a new command now…in the Blocks panel on the Express Tools tab.…And it's this one here, replace block with another block.…
It replaces all inserts of one block…with inserts of another.…Now, what I'm what I'm going to do here is,…I'm actually going to copy this block.…Just going to select it, right click>Copy Selection…on the shortcut menu, pick a point, and just do two…like that and then press Enter to finish.…Now, the reason I've got two this time is…I want to show you how this replace block works.…Now, we've got some nested blocks in our workstation block.…
