  1. Hi all, If I edit a block definition in one file, is it possible to update all instances of the block in another file? I have tried to insert my updated block definition into another file where the block is used multiple times, but it just inserts it as the old definition in that drawing. Can I redefine the block and replace all instances of it with the new updated version? trying to find a productive workflow that doesn't make me want to pull my hair out! thanks in advance. SC
  2. Hello there! since you're so popular I need your help. Here is my code and I need it to generate PDF only for it's job, like I have 50 pages and actually what I have here selects one page block (reads it's entity) and generates all the 50 pages, but I need to get PDF from like 25 of them not all of them! it needs to PDF ALL AT ONCE, page by page (with PDF Factory Pro Printer) Here it is : (defun c:epdf (/ ob ss bn mn mx) (vl-load-com) (setq cnt 0) (setq dir (getvar "dwgprefix")) (if (and (progn (initget "B") (setq ob (entsel "\nSelect Block/B for blockname: ")

    WBlock + xref

    Is there a way to create a block that includes xref files? WBlock only includes the DWG and not the xref.
  4. Hi, I have this batch file that opens each drawing in a specific folder, does a purge on each file, then saves and closes it. What I'd like to do is add a WBLOCK command to that script file that would write the entire drawing to a designated folder, but instead of calling the new file 'new block.dwg' (which is the default name), it would use the same name as the original. Below are a few lines from the script file and I'd like to insert the WBLOCK command after the purges. Is that possible? Many thanks _open "U:\Project\A - CURRENT DRAWINGS\TitleBlock.dwg" _purge all * no
  5. Hey folks! Looking to confirm or debunk some assumptions I've developed after creating and testing multiple iterations of different block tool palettes. From what I've seen, user-created block tool palettes will either be fully functional (~3 seconds from clicking on the icon to insertion in the drawing) or prohibitively slow (~45s) depending on how they were created. Method 1: If the blocks are added to the palette from any old drawing (either by dragging and dropping from model space or from the design center), pulling them back out of the palette takes a million years. Met
  6. I have an AutoCAD drawing. There are 100 road cross sections in that drawing. I want to make 100 separate drawings using those 100 road cross sections. I use Wblock command for that. but it is very hard to rename one by one while using that command. If you can teach me a way to rename them automatically. the windows can be selected when using that command. I want to get those files to a predefined folder with automatically renamed. Is there a way to do that? otherwise please write a lisp program for me. I don't know how to do that. How to use a file list in an Excel sheet as the names which u

    Wblock dialog box

    hey guys, I am working on converting some 3d solids into usable 2D dynamic blocks and I am working on writing a quick little lisp that will help speed it up. (defun c:test (/ obj obj2 bp name) (setq obj (entsel)) (command "_-view" "_top" "flatshot" '(0 0) 1 1 0 "_erase" obj "" "_explode" "_all" ) (setq obj2 (ssget)) (setq bp (getpoint "\nWhere is basepoint?: ")) (setq name (getstring T "\nWhat is the name of the block?: ")) (command "_block" name bp obj2 "" "_insert" name '(0 0) 1 1 0 "wblock" ) ) my issue is with the wblock command, is there a way to
  8. Lee Mac wrote this awesome lisp routine to be able to select multiple objects and wblock block them out as separate drawings, which works great. My problem i'm having is the program that i'm using for my router was written in 2010 and won't except the 2013 file's and for some reason wblock won't except the autocad default when i run the lisp routine, it saves them to 2013. I was wondering if someone could help me with this i would really appreciate it. Thanks again, Brian ;; WBlock Rectangles - Lee Mac ;; For improved performance, disable DWG thumbnail generation (defun c:wbr (
  9. See attached dwg with a basic layer, dim style and text style template. See that there are linetypes which I can't purge. _TEMP.dwg Linetypes are for example: 4382_F_08-10 GA Elevations$0$4382_F_1000-1 Lower Ground Floor Plan$0$ceiling details - Model$0$SW-CA-ZZZZ-ZZZ-2SC-AR-063001_Section4-4 - Default$0$AUSGEZOGEN That's just one name and there is over a hundred similar ones! Maybe the name is too long for ACAD to handle? Things I've tried. wblock selected to new .dwg audit, purge and audit, purge again. Copy and pasting into blank template. Step 2. 10+ years
  10. Hi All, What i'm looking to do is block multiple objects by windowing all of them at once and have them save as sepearate blocks and using the label in the middle as the block name. I guess the big question is it even possible to do this? Brian block dwg.dwg
  11. Recently starting having this problem. 1-2 months ago it was not a problem. I am not aware of any system variables being changed. When using the WBLOCK command, no thumbnail preview is being saved with the block for previewing in Windows Explorer. I have check the RASTERPREVIEW system variable is set to 1, but this makes no difference. When saving files normally I do not have a problem. The block previews are very useful for my day to day work, so if anyone can help I will be very grateful. Using AutoCAD 2011. Thanks, Gary
  12. Dear All, I've problem with Wblock command. I draw some drawings in file but when i try to save in Wblock command that does not work. This is notification about that. "Wblock operation rejected due to a proxy object that does not allow copying". What wrong with this? Any ideas for solve this problem. Thank you... Best regards
  13. I was very intrigued by a customer/clients DWG. It had all these, 'equipment envelopes'. They were blocks that were locked from editing/exploding. There were many of them. I could REFEDIT and save/discard changes, but that changed all the blocks. I noticed that the block had two 'parts', in the REFEDIT it appeard to have two files, a block within a block. I finally realized wblock (save block as) would allow me to actually 'get into' the block. So, that problem is solved (thanks in part to this website and its tutorials/forums). I'm still very curious, however. How did they do

    4" Tee pipe problem

    Hello, I'm currently taking a Basic AutoCad class at school. I just got assigned a group project where everyone draws an assigned 2D wblock and when the class is finished we're going to piece the wblocks together to make one large drawing. I know how to make the wblock but my problem is I don't understand these dimensions or how to use them to make my drawing in AutoCad and was hoping I could get some help here. I am assigned to draw a 4" Tee pipe (2D) and I have a sheet of poorly scanned paper with a table giving me the Nominal Pipe Size, Outside Diameter, Center to End of Run, Center to End
