Inserting a drawing as a block

You can insert as a block another drawing into the current drawing. After you do this, the block name is added to the Block Name list in the IntelliCAD Explorer. Changes made later to the inserted drawing will not be reflected in this drawing.

  1. Do one of the following:
  2. On the IntelliCAD Explorer toolbar, click the Insert External File Blocks tool ().
  3. In the Insert Block dialog box, select the drawing you want to insert, and then click Open.
  4. In the drawing, specify the insertion point.
  5. Specify the x, y, and z scale factor and the rotation angle, or in the prompt box, select Done.
  6. To complete the command and return to your drawing, close the window.
