Merging Block Attributes

768 Views, 4 Replies

I have a autocad file displaying room layout of a floor. Each room has two blocks. One for displaying the Fixture/Fitment data and second for Room details (Room no, Area).

Is there a way we can merge the two block attributes in a single block with both attributes.

Hi,

 

were these objects created by an application? If so then ask the developer of this application, that would be teh most direct way.

And a global answer to that question: no, AutoCAD is no function built in to do that. It may be possible to develop a tool that does it, but therefor you need to define rules for the tool, e.g. how does one block know, what other block is it's pair-object.

HI Alfred NESWADBA,

 

Thanks a lot for the answer, I already knew that it was not available in Autocad, but was hoping that there might be some changes or provisions in newer version. Still Thanks for the confirmation.

If both blocks have a common key attribute such as Room Number, you can try ATTOUT, then combine both csv file in Excel based on the key attribute. Then modify the definition of one of the block to include attributes of the other block.

Then ATTIN.

I haven't test it, just a gust feeling.

after ATTOUT , maybe you can edit one of the blocks and add attributes definition of the other .Then use attsync to update attributes visibility , then use attin
