Changing Block Units

Quick reminder to myself when you define a block you can give it units mm, m , or make it unitless.

If  someone draws a block of say a title block at 800 units by 400 units and then sets the blockunits to m by mistake when the block is inserted into a drawing with the drawings units set as mm the block will be made 1000 times bigger and you will scratch your head for a while to figure it out. To change the block units use

BMAKE (not BEDIT), select the already defined block in the pull down menu. Reset the units and exit.

  1. You can also do the same from within the block editor (run from the BEDIT command).

    Open the block for editing using the BEDIT command. Open the Properties palette. With nothing selected, the block properties are shown in the properties palette, and you can change the block units, explodability, scale uniformity and whether the block is annotative.
