Import multiple dwgs into drawing as individual blocks


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


My work have recently "upgraded" to Autocad LT 23 from an older full Autocad & as a result, I can no longer run my time saving Lisp routines.


We use a third party program which exports several dwg files per job. I had been using lisp to insert each dwg file as a block in my drawing, all spaced out along a row (eg block chart or insertblks).


Is there a way to do this without lisp? Everything i've found would mean importing one at a time.

thanks both for your replies.


I agree about Bricscad having used it in the past, but I am not in charge!


The spreadsheet idea is a good one - but the insert command just brings up the blocks paellete. I'm not sure how I reference the dwg file & it's path?


I've tried the following with no luck:

insert "C:\\USERS\\USER\\DESKTOP\\DRAWING.DWG" "0,0" 1 1 0

insert "C:\\USERS\\USER\\DESKTOP\\DRAWING.DWG" pt "" "" ""
