Brandon here and we’re back with another 2 Minute Tuesday!
This week we are taking a look at how exactly to Delete a Block from a drawing in AutoCAD. Surprisingly, or maybe not surprisingly, it’s not always straight forward or clear how to remove a block definition from a drawing.
You might think that simply deleting all the instances or copies of a block from the drawing is enough to remove it, but you’d be surprised.
It actually will leave the remnants of the block still saved in your insert dialog/list, potentially cluttering up and bloating a cad file if you happen to have used and removed many different blocks during the process of creating a drawing.
So, In order to fully remove a block definition, whether it’s to cleanup or shrink your drawing file or simply avoid duplicates or errors when inserting new blocks, follow the method we take a look at in the video to clean them up quickly!
That’s all for today’s quick Autocad Tip, I hope you all were able to take something away from it and able to add a new tool to your CAD toolbox!
