Grasshopper Blocks

I am currently trying to create a simple door block. It is an extruded rectangle at the moment. I will add more detail once I get the actual block to work.

I have gotten this far and cannot get anywhere from. I can’t create other instances, I can’t move this block. I don’t really know how to use the model block definition component at all. If anyone has any idea of where to start to make a decent door block that can be used throughout projects, any help will be much appreciated.

Use a model object component to assign a layer to the objects before creating the block definition.

Then after the block definition, add a model block instance component. You should assign a layer to the instance too, again using a model object component.

Transformation can be confusing. The block definition should to be modeled on the XY plane.

Thank you! I will give this a try!
