I use both sometimes... there is NO standard way. Just what seems to
work for you (IMHO).
Also, what about standard notes, revision information and BOM?
I have a block for Revisions as it is (for me) just Rev. #, Date and
Revision Description. So attributes work.
Again (for me), I use both... If I have a Revision change for ALL
drawings, a Block is more useful (especially if you have a lot of
drawings). But If I issue ONE drawing, then I usually insert a block
for that drawing.
Just no set way from my point of view...
Our titleblocks are all xref drawings. I can't tell you the number of
projects whose title changes 1/2 hour before the pdf's are to be made
and sent for printing. For us, it saves a lot of time and headache and
everything looks the same from one drawing to the next.
On the xref drawing itself: project name, address, project number -
there could be several, ie: clients proj. number, arch's proj number and
our project number. Date of issue. Logos. Things of that nature.
Items unique to a drawing, but part of the titleblock: Drawing number,
sometimes a drawing file name. The sheet title: Floor Plan -
Electrical, Plumbing isometrics, etc. Initials of who worked on the
drawing. And also revision notations, because each drawing may be
revised at a different time.
That is what we do and the why of it. Think it through and use what is
most convenient and consistent for your line of work.
