Blocks and Inserts

There are two methods by which symbols saved as blocks can be inserted into another drawing.

Ensuring that all the symbols saved as blocks using the Make Block tool are saved in the data of the drawing in which the symbols were constructed, erase the drawings of the symbols and in their place construct the outline of the plan of a bungalow to a scale of 1:50 (Fig. 9.5). Then:

1. Left-click the Block tool icon in the 2D Draw control panel or the Insert Block tool in the Draw toolbar (Fig. 9.6). The Insert dialog appears on screen (Fig. 9.7). From the Name popup list select the name of the block which is to be inserted, in this example the 2.5 window.
