AGove4123Sonnnnn Posted January 7, 2014 Share Posted January 7, 2014 (edited) I need a way to select everything but the centerlines within a block. They extend beyond the part which I hope to find the actual envelope dimensions of. I will then iterate through the remaining parts to find the max/envelope dimensions. The issue is this block is in a document with many other objects (blocks, lines, points, etc.) so exploding is not ideal as it would be a pain to recollect the parts. Also opening a seperate file is too time consuming, this must be done within the file at hand. Is this even possible? EDIT: Oh! A little drilling, and you can easily and directly access a block within a document, then iterate through them as I mentioned above. No inception-style selection sets needed! Nice. Looks very roughly like this: Dim blkTestBlock As AcadBlock Set blkTestBlock = AutoCAD.Application.ActiveDocument.Blocks("ACT1") For Each ACADEntity in blkTestBlock If linetype="Continuous" then getboundingbox....blahblahblah Edited January 7, 2014 by AGove4123Sonnnnn Solution Reached Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
