How to create block using block command

Create A Block in AutoCAD


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.


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.
