Making Nested Blocks

Nested blocks are blocks within blocks that include the same capabilities as regular blocks.

You can create nested blocks while editing an existing block and:
  • Sketching new entities
  • Selecting existing entities

To make nested blocks:

  1. Right-click a Block FM_block_sketch.gif in the FeatureManager design tree and select Edit Block.
  2. Sketch or select entities you want to add as nested blocks to the block you are editing.
  3. Add any required relations.
  4. Click Make Block Tool_Make_Block_Block.gif (Blocks toolbar) or Tools > Blocks > Make to list the sketch entities in the PropertyManager under Block Entities.
  5. Click PM_OK.gif, then Rebuild tool_Rebuild_Standard.gif, and note the nested blocks in the FeatureManager design tree.
