Block information

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
As far as getting the x-, y-, z- points of the block, type, "id" at the 
command line, then type "ins", click on the block and AutoCad will give 
you the x-, y-, z- insert points of the block.  

To save this information to a file, a short AutoLISP routine could be written 
that would save the ".x", ".y" and ".z" coordinates to a file.

As far as the block name, I'm sorry, but I can't give any suggestions on that.
