What is a Block Label and how do they differ to Blocks?

For example, what are some good examples of Block Labels being used?

 

I can't seem to find any information on them anywhere.

 

Thanks.

Hi @User_Error

 

 

 

imagine a r+i scheme for example where You will have several instances of one and the same block  symbol but each of them has a different logical function.

Here You will use block labels to show different names/functions to any o them.

 

Or, take as example a block showing a motor symbol.

 

No we have ten of those motors, but each of them again has to be servered different in the sens of electrics.

Alle these situations are example for a different block label.

I see.

 

So in the context of manufacturing drawings, I am currently using Blocks with Callouts that contain Properties on the drawing borders.

 

Example, using %{Created/@dd.MM.yy} as a callout, and Block that can be placed if a document is copied over and we need the date.

 

Would there be any benefit in using Block Labels on manufacturing drawings you've seen or are they meant mainly for R+I, electrical drawings etc?

Hi @User_Error

 

 

 

OK, fo such a usage I do not see many or even any situations for using a block label.

 

Block Lables IMHO are more in use for real 2D drawings and schematics, so the first idea I have got were R+I etc.

 

For backround sheet and drawing header I do not see the need of Block Labels.

OK, guys, what does "r+i" refer to?

Edit: Oh, P&ID in English I presume?
