Info

Each user has its own custom sheet, in this step we should draw the desired format using the CAD resources like lines, polilines, circles, text and others. You can also use the example drawing found in “More Info” above.

3. Draw the lines, columns, and the sheet limits;

Warning

  • Regarding the insertion point, before creating the block, is very important that the entities stay at the correct insertion point, in other words, the point must be at the beginning of the page columns and at the end of the lines reference.
  • Regarding the layers, every time a block is created, its entities must be in layer 0. To verify this, enable the Properties palette. If they are not, you MUST change them to layer 0.

Save the “format” block…

1. Select all entities previously created;

2. Access the guide GE Manage > Configurations > New Component > New Control;

3. Create a new folder named “MY BLOCKS”;

This folder can own any name. You can assign, for example, the name of a customer or other sheet models.

4. Name the block “FORMAT”

5. Click on “save”;

6. On the command window, it will be prompted the block’s insertion point;

7. Enter the point 0,0  at the command window and press enter;

Saving will be confirmed when the block vanishes the drawing area.
