AutoCAD Xref

Xrefs is a powerful tool that let you view another drawing within your current drawing without actually inserting that other drawing.

1. Type XREF.
2. Select Attach DWG.
3. Browse for the drawing you want to xref.
4. Select Open.
5. Pick Overlay or Attachment. ( An overlay will not include any of the nested X-ref's that the file may contain.)
6. Select the path. (choose Relative Path instead of Full Path)
7. Select insertion point, scale and rotation.

8. Click OK.

Note: Before XREF you need to check the UCS of the drawing.
