    Default Trim inside a box on multiple blocks

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hello,

    I have this map panel made by several blocks imported and constructed in CAD with an external utility.
    The KP box looks terrible when other blocks go through it, but I can't trim inside because the KP box is on the main DWG , while the other bjects that I'd like to trim are part of other blocks.
    Starting from the point that I can't alter the blocks - the DWG has to remain like this, with blocks. Is there a way to trim inside that KP box?
    many thanks!
    Alex

    Wipeout doesn't actually erase anything. After adding it simply select the KP number or anything you want visible and bring it to front with draworder.
    Layer 0 for ByBlock Block entities, everything else ByLayer. So many issues can be solved with good templates.
