I have started to creates some sketch blocks.The only issue i have is when i go and place them in a drawing they get placed way outside the layout so i have to drag them into the layout sheet.How do i get the sketch block to be placed into the layout..
Can you attach one of these "sketch blocks" here?
I suspected that you did not define an insertion point, but that was not the case.
Placement of your block example is entirely predictable.
How are you placing, by typing in coordinates or On-screen?
The block "XFLOW STRAINER" looks fine. The drawing named block has one insertion of "XFLOW STRAINER". The insertion is far away from the origin of "block.dwg". If you try to insert "block.dwg" into another drawing it will drag "XFLOW STRAINER" far from the object itself.
If you meant to access "XFLOW STRAINER" from other drawings, use wblock to save it to a drawing by itself or drag it to a palette and use the palette to insert "XFLOW STRAINER" into other drawings.
Thanks for all the replies..I open up a new I open up a new AutoCad template and go to the ISO A3 Title Block sheet..Then from the Insert Tab i insert Blocks with the Insertion Point On Screen box Ticked
