Finding CAD Blocks

Are you looking for blocks in addition to those that come with AutoCAD?

I have just been sent in search of some Mechanical, Plumbing and Fire Protection blocks.
The first thing I’ll do is search some newgroups to find out where other CAD people go… some sites might be free, while others might charge.


If you’ve used any of these sites and have any opinions on the quality of their content, please post a comment.

search autodesk discussion groups for download free block

Or search AUGI for the same:

of course, you might need a way to organize your blocks…

The Block Catalog Generator in ToolPac 7.0 will let you build a multi-page (layout) drawing ready to plot. http://www.dotsoft.com/toolpac.htm
-OR-
DotSoft's DwgBrowser 1.0 will prepare a html document that can be brought into word and printed. http://www.dotsoft.com/dwgbrowser.htm

Remember that you can also build a tool palette from a selection of blocks, from within the Design Center.
