Working with blocks

Blocks can be used to create both conceptual and more detailed city models. They are created whenever you enclose an area with Routes or if you create blocks using the Draw blocks controls.

Some blocks are more appropriate for conceptual models, and some can be used for more detailed models. For a full list of available block types please see Introduction to CityCAD concepts.

Managing block settings

CityCAD comes with default settings for each block type, but you can also create your own library of customized block settings. You can save block types in the Settings Library to re-use on other projects - for example residential blocks of different densities.

The Block Settings Manager is used to create and edit combinations of settings for different block types. To access this, click the button on the CityCAD Toolbar.
