Very frequently I'm working on building and equipment layouts. I receive drawings from architects with building details and copy plan views from many different equipment manufacturers and paste them into the drawing. Then, of course, layout the equipment in relation to the building and to each other.
Right now I'm just copying and pasting the information together into one layout drawing. While doing this I get a lot of layers and blocks that automatically add in the process. I was curious to know if there is a better practice for working on this? Creating blocks, external references, or something else.
