Also need this functionality but looking at other posts, it seems you have to use LISP.

first of all

you need to insert block command I send an example...

then you specified the coords. of the where the block inserted.

along a polyline I suggest get coordinate method.

if you describe your problem with details, I can help with further imformation.

here is insert block example which already existed in acad

sub is add block to (0,0,0) coordinate, you can modfiy to polyline coordinates..


Sub block_ekleme()
    Dim blocknesnesi As AcadBlockReference
    Dim kesisim(0 To 2) As Double
    kesisim(0) = 0: kesisim(1) = 0: kesisim(2) = 0
    Set blocknesnesi = ThisDrawing.ModelSpace.InsertBlock(kesisim, "blo", 1#, 1#, 1#, 0)
End Sub

it is fairly easy to do mathematically. Here is one example. It is maybe little complex :smileyhappy: but will give you directions how to do it. There is a way with SendCommand() method but I don't know how it works. Look in Help Menu there is plenty of examples
