I've come to realize I apparently have a fundamental misunderstanding of what constitutes a block. I've always thought a block was a named entity (or named group of related entities), optionally with attributes, that could be inserted into a drawing. For example: a machine part, window unit, bolt, door latch, drawing frame, etc.
But reading here I see the term block being used at (what appears to me to be) a much more fundamental level in terms of the drawing. Maybe it's related to the technical drawing structure, as opposed to the higher-level abstractions I'm considering? That is, blocks not so much as discrete drawing elements, but rather related to model space, layouts, etc.
I can create a new drawing and by default the block list contains:
- Model (*Model_Space)
I'm certainly not expecting a 10-page explanation , but it would be great to get pointed in the right direction so I can clear up my misunderstanding(s). Given my limitations it's difficult know if I've explained myself clearly, but hopefully someone understands what I'm getting at.
