This video will learn What is Block command and how to create a block command in AutoCAD.
The shortcut key for using the Block command from the command prompt window is the 'B+Enter' key.
As soon as we use this option, one dialogue box will open in front of our screen named 'Block Definition.'
In this, first of all, people name the block. Then, edit all the options shown in that dialogue box, such as Basepoint, Objects, Behaviour, etc. We can specify our x,y, and z-axis coordinates in the base point option if it is known.
In the objects option, we will select the 'Convert to block' option after selecting the object which is not in block type.
We can also delete the objects using the 'Delete' option after selecting the object's pick point.
Using the 'Retain' object option, we can single select an object from the whole object. So this is how Block command works in AutoCAD.
Is there a way to group objects in AutoCAD?
The AutoCAD software has a variety of tools to help you group objects.
You can select multiple objects and then choose the Group command from the Home tab on the ribbon. This will create a new group and put all of the selected objects in it. You can also use this command to rename an existing group.
Alternatively, you can select two or more objects and then use the Join command from the Home tab on the ribbon. This will create a new group and put all of the selected objects in it, while preserving any object properties that are different between them.
How can I group objects in AutoCAD?
Grouping objects in AutoCAD is a way to organize and structure your drawing. It can be used to create new groups, or to change the current group.
This video will show you how to do this by using the Group command.
What should I do if my group selection is not working in AutoCAD?
The first thing to do is to make sure that you are not missing any steps. Check the list of steps below:
1) Make sure that the group is selected in the first place.
2) Make sure that there is only one object selected in the group.
3) Make sure that you have clicked on the right type of object, otherwise this will not work.
4) Confirm if your parameters are set correctly and then try again.
Why does the group selection not work in AutoCAD?
The group selection doesn't work in AutoCAD because it is not a design tool. It is used to make changes to existing drawings.
Group command is a very useful tool in autocad but it can also be a problem. For example, if you want to delete a group of lines and then realize you have to delete the whole group, it’s too late. If you want to move the whole group and then realize that some of them are not supposed to move, it’s too late.
So what’s the solution? There are two ways:
1) Use "undo" after every command.
2) Use "group selection" instead of "group command".
The group command is a way of organizing and arranging the text in your document.
The group command can be used to create sections, subsections, and sub-subsections.
It can also be used to organize any list you may have.
A section is a collection of paragraphs that are related to one another. A subsection is a collection of paragraphs that are related to one another and are part of a section. And finally, a sub-subsection is a collection of paragraphs that are related to one another and are part of both sections and subsections.
The group command only works with objects that form a closed loop. In Autocad, the group command will not work if there are any gaps in the area that you are trying to group.
To define the block, first hit CTRL+SHIFT+C on the keyboard, then snap to the "insertion" point where you want it to be defined. Then, with ENTER, select the items from which you wish to build a block.
Open AutoCAD on your desktop. Open the Options dialogue in AutoCAD. Go to Blocks Sync Folder Location on the Files tab and create a new folder for recent and favourite blocks.
The blocks panel at the top of the ribbon is the simplest way to make a block. Alternatively, you can type the block command and push enter to bring up the block definition data box. ATTSYNC, which is available in the blocks panel, can be used to sync characteristics.
The steps are as follows:
Set the layer that will be used for your solid fill first.
Click Hatch on the Home tab of the Draw panel.
Select Solid from the Pattern panel.
If you have a closed region, you can choose an internal point by clicking inside it.
To exit the HATCH command, press Enter.
If you feel the drawing could be in any of the subfolders of the chosen drive or folder, select the search subfolders radio button. In the Search field, type the object's name. In this scenario, we'll type bent pipe as the block's name and hit the Search Now button.

very nice explanation over all commands and deep insights with demo all commands detailed features . not even in Paid courses people teach this level of AutoCAD in this way.
this website by excellent teacher by provide course.
