Add new attribute to multiple existing blocks

Recommended Posts

Beni88

Hi there

Im a very beginner at using lisp, so help would come in handy.

 

Couldnt find anything on the web for this precise issue.

I have a dwg containing hundreds of blocks, each with the same attribute tags and different values (eg Name, Model, Size..). This is my library, which needs to be modified in the same manner. I need a new attribute *Price* added to all blocks, i will enter the value manually later on. Is it possible to add this new attribute automatically without exploding the existing blocks? I guess it has to be done with lisp?

Thank you for any help!

No, you don't need a lisp routine. Just edit the block, add the new attribute, save and exit the editor. Then insert the new edited block and run the ATTSYNC command to update all blocks with the same name.

The blocks have each a unique name..its their structure (layers etc) that is the same. So its hundreds of different blocks, but they all need the new attribute

Hi rlx

 

Thank you! The second link helped a lot. I can add the Attribute now to multiple blocks, and was able to change its Name and pre set value.

But how do I change the new Attribute to be invisible?

 

This is the code I used for now:

(defun c:add$ ( / ss i blk blks def AttObj)
    (and
       (setq ss (ssget '((0 . "INSERT"))))
       (setq i (sslength ss))
       (while (> i 0)
          (setq blk (cdr (assoc 2 (entget (ssname ss (setq i (1- i)))))))
          (if (not (vl-position blk blks))(setq blks (cons blk blks)))
       )
    )
    (foreach blk blks
         (setq def (vla-item (vla-get-blocks (vla-get-activedocument (vlax-get-acad-object))) blk))
         (setq AttObj
            (vla-addattribute def
              8
              acattributemodelockposition
              "Enter Item #"
              (vlax-3D-point 72 84)
              "PRICE\U+0020"
              "100"
            )
         )
         (vlax-put AttObj 'Alignment acAlignmentmiddle) ;; 4
         (command "_.attsync" "_N" blk)
     )
    (princ)
)
(vl-load-com) (princ)

Further on, after applying this code to my database dwg-file with all my blocks in it, I will fill in the price for each block in the properties section with the new Attribute "PRICE". How can I automatically sychronize every drawing (or at least the one I open) so that the new Attribute "Price" including it's set value will be up to date for every block in this particular dwg?

to put an attribute invisible read this :

 second part of your question would need more info , like sample drawing , source of your pricelist (xls , txt?) and above all more time than I have right now (today anyway)

Just a thought if the attribute price is the last attribute in the creation order then its easy when you do a vl  'getattributes you can get the count of attributes as well so last attribute can be found.

 

A txt file with a list of block names  would stop it updating wrong blocks. An alternative is say a excel then a csv output of name,att position,price this has advantage if you move attribute order. On startup a read excel could be done also.

Hi all

I'm very late with following up on the issue of the additional attribute, which I thought I had the solution that I needed. Sorry for the delay and thank you for any help up till now!!

I'll try to explain my issue more thoroughly this time 😁

 

My problem is this:

I have 200+ different blocks (chair, desk, lamp..) in one dwg. They all have the same stucture (Layer, Attributes) but different values for the Attibutes (eg. Name, Size, Model and so on..).

That's my library drawing. I use the acad tool bar which allows me to drag and drop these blocks into any drawing I like. And so I used these blocks in many different drawings already.

 

Now with the code below, I added ONE new Attribute 'Price' to each block in my library. Unfortunately, I still had to change the value for the attribute 'Price' manually, since they are different for each block (each item has a different price obviously). And because they need to be the set value, I had to do this using battman.

 

This is the code I used:

(defun c:add$ ( / ss i blk blks def AttObj)
    (and
       (setq ss (ssget '((0 . "INSERT"))))
       (setq i (sslength ss))
       (while (> i 0)
          (setq blk (cdr (assoc 2 (entget (ssname ss (setq i (1- i)))))))
          (if (not (vl-position blk blks))(setq blks (cons blk blks)))
       )
    )
    (foreach blk blks
         (setq def (vla-item (vla-get-blocks (vla-get-activedocument (vlax-get-acad-object))) blk))
         (setq AttObj
            (vla-addattribute def
              0.07
               acAttributeModeInvisible
              ""
              (vlax-3D-point 72 84)
              "PRICE"
              "338"
            )
         )
         (vlax-put AttObj 'Alignment acAlignmentmiddle) ;; 4
         (command "_.attsync" "_N" blk)
     )
    (princ)
)
(vl-load-com) (princ)

 

Now, if I create a new drawing and insert any block from my library drawing, the block including the new attribute 'Price' is correct and has already the right value in it. So later on, I can extract the data into an xls-file.

 

But I would like to 'update' my preexisting drawings as well. In those, the blocks are of course still without the new attribute 'Price'. I tried to insert using WBLOCK, but that would mean I have to do this for every single block. I usually have dozens of different blocks in one drawing and can't use WBLOCK for every single one of them.

Also using WBLOCK, the color and layer changes back to 'Layer 0' and Color 'from Layer' .

 

Is there a routine which at least allows me to insert my whole 'library' (not just one block!) into a drawing, and updates (sync) the older blocks in it at once?

Or is there a simpler way to do this?

 

Thank you so much for any help!

Maybe look at lee-mac steal.lsp it can bring in blocks from another dwg. Not sure about the overwrite bit.

 

Thinking a bit more a script may do it using repeat for every block not tested.

-insert c:\\mydwh\\myblocksbybeni88\\block1 Y

-insert c:\\mydwh\\myblocksbybeni88\\block2 Y

I tried Lee Mac's lsp, but the script steal.lsp can only insert blocks that aren't already in the drawing. So I don't even know if the overwrite is working or not..

 

Second part of your answer makes sense, but I wouldn't know where to start with writing that kind of script. I found a script online which creates a wblock for each block of my library drawing and saves it to some folder.

So I need the script to repeadetly insert every wblock from this specific folder into my new drawing, chooses Y to update the existing blocks (IF the specific block is in the new drawing), deletes the block afterwards and syncs all blocks?

Ok lets go back to the drawing board, step one export out all blocknames to a text file, which is your master dwg.

 

Add , price   --> blkname,100

 

Add price with  value to every block. 

 

this needs the code above to read the file probably best to copy and call "add-update price"

 

you can do as many as you like in one go using a srcript it would look like this

Open dwg1
(load "add price lisp")
close Y
Open dwg2
(load "add price lisp")
close Y
Open dwg3
(load "add price lisp")
close Y

 

To run the lisp on loading as per code posted just add (c:add-price$) as a last line in your lisp this will auto run it. Note new name of defun. You could preload but will keep simple. Replace "338" with the value of the price in code.

 

Needed

The update lisp needs to be re-written.

There is a lot of code out there to write block name need to find, I may have somewhere.

Ok try this let me know

 

this will output block names to a file change in both codes you need to edit the file to the block list you want.

Hi BIGAL

 

The first script works and creates the text file. But I don't think I understand what the second script is supposed to do....and it is not working (file nil it says)?

 

I could now create a text file (master list) with row 1 (Name of the block --> thanks to script one) and row 2 (price for this particular block --> manually). So all I need is a script which I can run in any drawing I like, and this script will add the new attribute PRICE to every block in the drawing which matches the master list. And it should get the actual price for each blog in that list..

 

 

So, check for every block in drawing

  for each blog that is also in the master list

    add attribute price

    add price from master list for this block name

 

something like that..

We need a sample dwg either with price added or better two dwgs one with one without, only need a few blocks say at least 3. Youcan make the blocks dumb like a sq so long as they have attributes.

Alright, here are the 2 files. Each containes the same 4 blocks, with or without the price ("Preis") attribute.

 

Please note that for 2 blocks, the price is not the 'set value', just the value in this drawing. The script which I used didn't add the price as 'set value'. For 2 blocks, I already changed this manually.

 

Thank you so much!!

Hi BIGAL

 

It isn't that easy right? I'm still trying myself...Or were you able to build something?

Might it be possible to create a standalone attribute (price) then assign it to each block in the library via lisp from a master pricing spreadsheet?  In theory, inserting it as a standalone attribute would then let you have multiple blocks with different pricing?

Lisp isn't really my thing lol so I'm not an expert.

Hi ChriS

 

Sorry, my Lisp is enexistent :) not sure it would work your way tho.

 

 

I have found this amazing routine from LeeMac which updates the attributes of all mentioned blocks in a drawing according to a csv file. The only thing that is missing is the creation of the additional PRICE attribute, if there is a block whithout it yet. Otherwise I think this could work for me:
