Delete all geometry outside of an XCLIP boundary

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to 'simply' delete all geometry outside of an XCLIP boundary from a .dwg file?

 

In this case my drawing is a 2D building floorplan and the geometry under the XCLIP consists of multiple blocks of walls/windows/tables/etc. that all/some pass in, through and out of the XCLIP boundary.

 

In lieu of exploding the entire drawing down to nothing and TRIM'ing everything outside of the XCLIP boundary, is there another one-shot way that will achieve what I'm after without having to butcher all the blocks?

 

In my case I need to take said DWG file and convert it to an SVG file, so I could do with any unnecessary geometry (such as that outside of the XCLIP boundaries) being banished from whence they came.

Have you looked into the EXPORTLAYOUT command? It will export everything inside the layout to a separate drawing. The new drawing will include the parts outside the layout, but you can clip those. It will explode dimensions and other objects that cross the border, which at least saves some of the work.
