i got a drawning with minserted blocks, and it is giving me a hard time!!
cause I need to use only the lines (ventilation duct trace) which are also
inserted with minsert function.
although it is not such a big file in size, my CAD gets very, VERY, slow
during every operation with this DWG.
what can I do to get it simplified?? and to explode minserted blocks?
You can start by deleting everything you don't need from the file and then
PURGE the drawing.
If the drawing is still really slow its likely that the problem is a large
number of layer filters, which
can be deleted.
The problem is that this DWG I got from the architect, and it is consisted
of a one single block, created by minsert function, in which are every
elements of the building. So, that means that I can't explode just one piece
and than use it.
That part is quite simple to do. But this is the first time that I come up
to minsered blocks.
A guy at the tech. support for ACAD told me that, sometimes, minsert
function is for securing the DWG in the way
that you can something with it, but the problem is speed.
For me this way of securing is funny because ther are DWF file to view and
I come up the LISP command which explodes minsert function but the problem
is that it doesn't work with specific blocks, cause it searches for another
DWG which is, probably, at the comp of the architect.
Do you know what is the exact function of minsert? And when to use it?
I know that for creation of it, the program generates a matrix at least in
size of 2x2.... that means that every block is created minimum 4
times!!!!!!!! WHY???? i mean, what' the use.... i don't see any reason for
Our std office practice is to distribute minserted drawing files only.
Our std "for approval only" block or "for construction" block
are inserted on the original then the entire drawing is minserted
My understanding is that once minserted, the drawing is no
longer editable other than to add to or erase it in it's entirety.
If this is not correct, please explain how individual components
of a minserted drawing can be exploded then edited.
