Blocks in AutoCAD can contain many objects, parameters, and actions that allow us to expedite tedious drafting processes and enhance our drawings. We can add more text-based data to our blocks by creating attribute definitions within them.

Each attribute definition can contain a multitude of settings and modes that change how the attribute is displayed and accessed when the block is placed on a drawing. Modes like Invisible, Constant, Verify, Preset, Lock Position, and Multiple Lines are just some of the features that can be toggled within attributes.

This is the first part of our series on creating attributes with AutoCAD. For more information, please contact us at
