In this video, Shaun Bryant uses the PURGE command to remove unwanted blocks from the CAD drawing.
- [Instructor] We're staying in our…05 Office Reception Area drawing…and as you can see, it's not looking…much different, the only thing that…we removed in the last video…was our elevator block that we actually…had in the elevator shaft over on…the right hand side of the drawing there.…Now, the good thing is, obviously,…you've still got that lovely purge command…available in AutoCAD.…Now you can purge out any unwanted blocks…that you're not using, so again,…you just type purge, that's the quickest way…to do it, normally, purge and then Enter.…
That will bring up the Purge dialog box…and as usual, make sure that you've got…it set to view items you can purge.…So you'll notice there, in blocks now,…I can purge some blocks out,…there's a plus sign there.…Click on it, and you'll see that…there's various blocks there…that we can get rid of.…And you'll notice because we removed…the elevator block, it's right there.…So, if you don't want that block…in your DWG file, your CAD file anymore,…you can just purge that out of the drawing.…
