I have created a custom shaped polyline solid and would like to add it to the Library Browser so that I can use it in future plans. How can I accomplish this task?


A polyline solid must be converted to an architectural block before it can be added to the User Catalog in the Library Browser.

To add a polyline solid to the Library Browser

  1. Use the Select Objects  tool to drag a marquee around the polyline solid.

  2. With the selection marquee created, click on the Make Architectural Block  edit tool.

  3. Once you have blocked the polyline solid, click on the Add to Library  edit tool to add the object to the User Catalog. 

  4. If you use this polyline solid in a future plan placed from the Library Browser, and find you need to modify it slightly, simply select it again and click on the Explode Architectural Block  edit tool so that you can make modifications.
