To Group or not to Group… Blocks Vs Groups

Both Blocks and Groups are a collection of AutoCAD objects treated as a single object, so how do I determine when to use one over the other? The first thing you have to ask yourself is how you plan on using the objects. The main things to consider are; If you are going to need the set of objects to be (1) Used in multiple drawing (2) Include Attributes (3) Store it on a Tool Palette or Menu (4) Or be able to Search for the content, (like Content Explore… ). Then you want to use a BLOCK… If the set of objects are (1) Just for temporary use (2) Or if you need to have different variations on the set of objects (like similar design layouts…). Then you want to use a GROUP!
