Chapter 13. Creating and Using Blocks > Managing Blocks Effectively

Managing Blocks Effectively

As you learn how to take advantage of the power of blocks, you will eventually develop hundreds of blocks, possibly more. You can further enhance the power of blocks by managing those blocks in a fashion that enables you and other users to quickly find the desired block definition. If you do not do this, productivity will be lost in one of two ways. First, it will take significant time to simply find the appropriate block. Second, if the block can’t be found, it will take time to re-create the block from scratch. It is therefore necessary to establish criteria that everyone must follow to properly create and store blocks for future use.

WBLOCK Command

When you’re creating a block library, the most important component is the block itself. Chances are you probably already have a wealth of predefined blocks residing in existing drawing files. These existing files are the first place you should go to develop your block library because they probably contain blocks your organization frequently uses.
