In the AutoCAD world, efficiency is a must. No matter whether you are working on a site plan, laying out residential or commercial plots, any project that requires replication then the array command is your best friend. In this blog, we will learn how to create multiple copies of an object easily with minimum work required; using simple real-life situation.

Follow This Steps To Create Multiple Copies of the Array/Blocks:

Step 1: Select Your Template Plot

Strat with the plot you want to duplicate. For example purpose, let’s say we have a plot that’s perfect for new developments. This plot will act as our template for copy.

Step 4: Specify the Number of Replicas/Copies

AutoCAD will ask how many copies you need. In our case, we’re planning for 12 new plots, so we’ll enter “12”. This number can be changed according to your need of copies.

Step 5: Complete the Operation

To finalize, click “OK” or press “Enter”. Just like that, you’ve created 12 exact replicas/ multiple copies of your original plot. This method is not only quick but also ensures consistency across your design.


The array command is a powerful tool in AutoCAD, enabling users to replicate objects quickly and accurately. By following these steps, you can significantly speed up your design process, allowing more time for creativity and precision in your projects. Remember, in AutoCAD, efficiency is just a command away.
