I am having a problem finding any info on creating drawing views from model space entities through the API. I would like to do something like the VIEWBASE command, except provide it geometry from the model that I have selected in .NET. Any help is much appreciated.

Hello David,


The “Drawing View” objects are unfortunately not yet exposed through any API at the moment.

At present the model documentation API only allow querying of the views and creation / editing of the view styles.

Dear Balaji,

I was wondering when/if document modeling will be exposed through NET.


Now I use it sending command strings, but it's not an easy task and not prone to errors.


Thank you,
