To create a library, you need to first start with an empty drawing. Name the drawing and save it as a new file name. Within the new drawing, create all the CAD objects that you want to store in the library. Then, save those CAD objects using their own file names. Lastly, open the Drawing Properties dialog box and click on the Libraries tab. Here, you will see your newly created library listed as well as any libraries that are currently loaded into Autocad. Click Add and then select all of the files for your new library from within your computer's file system and click Open to add them to Autocad's list of libraries.

AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT don't come with large symbol libraries out of the box. Libraries can be built or found on the internet. To launch the palettes, go to Ribbon panel -> View tab -> Palettes panel and look for the available symbols. Alternatively, you can access the same palettes by pressing CTRL+3 on your keyboard.

A library is a collection of pre-designed parts that can be used in future projects. It’s a great way to save time and create consistency among projects.


  • Save design time: Libraries are filled with pre-designed parts, so you don't have to spend time designing the same thing over and over again.
  • Consistent design: Using libraries ensures that the design will be consistent throughout your project, which makes it easier for others to understand what you're trying to convey with your design.
  • Save money: You can purchase libraries from other designers or download them for free online, saving you money in the long run.

The Write Block has an input for a text string, which is represented by the text parameter, and an optional justification parameter. The latter specifies how the text will be justified in relation to its placement on the drawing sheet- left, right, or center.

An example of a command using this block might look like this:

  • DrawingText = "This is some sample text"
  • Text=DrawingText
  • Justification=left
