    Default Lisp for counting blocks?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi,

    Does anyone know where a bloke can get his hands on a lisp routine for counting blocks (name specific?) within a drawing? I'm looking to easily count the number of light fixtures of different types within a drawing.
    I nearly had one on google but the site has been discontinued (www.cadresource.com).
    All comments & suggestions welcome.

    Type CONTENT and then the content explorer should open and a tree like explorer view of the drawing contents should appear.

    The sreenshot below shows a cadtutor file with the content and blocks
    previewing.

    I know what your talking about !We have to count hundreds of lighting types for stupid asset schedules!Have a look at one of my previuos threads,this will work so long as youre not using the light version and have the express tools loaded.No fancy LISP needed!

    Use "bcount" from the Express Tools.
