What is the difference between Bylayer and Byblock in AutoCAD?
Consequently, how do you use ByLayer in AutoCAD?
The SETBYLAYER command in AutoCAD lets you correct non-ByLayer properties. On the Home tab of the Ribbon, click the Modify panel label to open the panel slideout, and then click Set to ByLayer. Answer the prompts at the command line to finish modifying objects.
what is the purpose of Layer 0 in AutoCAD? Layer 0 is a default AutoCAD layer. When you want to create geometry for blocks, this is default layer for it. When you insert AutoCAD blocks, they will use active layer. Every objects in block that use Layer 0 will use the block layer properties.
Beside above, what is meant by block in AutoCAD?
In the context of AutoCAD, blocks are the collection of geometries that act as a single object and they can be used in a drawing repetitively. The blocks which are used in the drawing are called block references and if you modify the block all its references change automatically.
What do you mean by layer in AutoCAD?
Layers are the primary method for organizing the objects in a drawing by function or purpose. In a house plan, you might create layers for the foundation, floor plan, doors, fixtures, electrical, and so on. In this example, the display is limited to the objects on the Floor Plan layer by turning off the other layers.
