Macro for Block Creation

Recommended Posts

nfractals

I have multiple cad files and need to create mutiple blocks with same name at same coordinates. Tried using Action macro but the macro doesnt record the block name.

 

Is there any workaround? or any lisp routine I could use?

Welcome to the forum! :)

Sounds like your DRAWING SHEET maybe?

The ACTION RECORDER will always balk when it hits a dialog box.

If you put the block you want to use on your clipboard before you run your ACTION MACRO you can use the PASTE TO ORIGINAL COORDINATES command, and in that way won't get a dialog box.

 

Or if you already have the block created, sounds like you do, then just INSERT it.

 

Or just visit LEE MAC's site and revel in other MORE CREATIVE and efficient options.

Like this http://www.lee-mac.com/copytodrawing.html .

Thanks Lee! :beer:

 

Please note that using Lee's lisp, you do not even need to open the drawings into which you wish to make the additions.

Now that's just plain SMART!
