Title: Thoughts on Block Library
Post by: MSTG007 on May 13, 2019, 08:55:47 AM
What are your thoughts on managing / creating a block library? What is the best practice would you say?

Keep all blocks in (one) dwg.

Keep separate dwgs for each block.

The end result would be that the user would access the blocks via the tool palette.


what do you think?

Keep separate dwgs for each block.
The end result would be that the user would access the blocks via self updating dialog(s).

When dealing with multiple clients, there may be cases where some blocks need to be different but not others.  When you have multiple blocks defined in a single file it makes managing a default/override arrangement difficult.  I usually prefer individual source files and let the SFSP determine which block is inserted.
