Flatten and Combine feature in ACAD

Status: Solution Provided
by Board Manager on ‎08-30-2012 04:38 PM

This is a productivity enhancement. Basically customers spend a lot of time exploding blocks down to geometry and then creating a single block. This request is to automatically:   

  • Flatten all nested block refs down to geometry   
  • Create a block of the resulting geometry, moving all geometry to a user specified layer optionally   
  • Instancing the block back into the DWG

Detach analysis indicators

User would like to detach analysis indicators from the main panel to place near the stations.


Customer discussion: "Do you know if we have to ability to move individual Dashboards?  I would like to move individual Station indicators to a region near the station. Seems logical, right? It turns out that all of the indicators near the bottom can be moved together but you cannot move individual indicators. They are all locked in the same block and cannot be moved independently. It is also difficult to understand which station the Indicator belongs to - does not mean much intuitively - I am guessing this should be an easy issue to fix."

Automotive customer requests the ability to easily suppress/delete all constraints for selected components.


We need to understand the motivation for wanting to do this. If it is just to drag the asset freely, there may be more elegant approaches (see US1091)
