Batch Wblock Multiple Files

134 Views, 1 Replies

How can a list of multiple files be batch processed to have all the blocks in each file dumped into a directory?

Over the years, I have created custom blocks or modified blocks in drawings. I would like to be able to batch open those drawings and have the blocks in them wblocked into a directory for evaluation/sorting for future use.

I have seen routines that can extract the blocks in opened drawings, but havent found one that would open/extract/close a group of files.

Does such a thing exist?

I wonder if you could use ObjectDBX to do this. You would have two session
of it, one for the drawing with all the blocks, and one with a new drawing
where you would put all the objects from the blocks. It sounds to me like
it would work in theory, but I don't have the time right now to do it, but
maybe someone will, or if you want to try something like this, then I/others
can help you along the way.
