block:  A block is a grouping of CAD elements and attributes that can be manipulated as a whole.  All CAD objects contain at least one block, the Main Block.  When a block (such as the detail for a door frame) is used multiple times in a drawing, the block description is stored once, and each insertion point refers to that source.
