AutoCAD Block Manager

Blocks Explorer .Net ™ provides an intuitive Windows Explorer ™-like user interface to catalog, access, manipulate, modify and administer AutoCAD blocks.



Symbol Cataloging

Classify blocks by logical groups - Library Folders. Library folders can be arranged into tree-like structures.

Import Dwg files or blocks from a currently open drawing into a selected library with automatic-slide generation

Collect the selected block from the currently open drawing into the library with automatic-slide generation

Advanced Manipulation

Blocks Explorer .Net offers the unique ability to Insert, Xref, Adjust and Replace blocks

 or X-ref  library blocks once or multiple times with Block Manipulation Options module

X-flip, Y-flip, Rotate, Rotate90, Move, Explode, Scale, Attribute Edit, Match, Delete, Undo or Change Properties of the selected block references

 Instances of one block with another

 Trim Shapes
Cataloged Blocks may be associated with one of three shapes that allow a Block Insert to trim entities like: LINE, POLYLINE, LWPOLYLINE, CIRCLE, ARC, and ELLIPSE. Do not use the Break command to break lines around your Blocks — define the Trim Shape for that block and click the Shape Trim button to trim around any number of selected blocks at once

Associate a block with unlimited combinations of insert parameters (Scale, Rotation, Attributes). You can select that combination when a block is inserted, instantly transforming it to the desired form

Library Resources

Block Library Exchange provides an extensive collection of Blocks Explorer .Net ready libraries.

Registered users can market their own libraries through Block Library Exchange


  Standards - support departmental drawing standards by associating cataloged blocks with Insert Properties  (Insertion Layer, Color, Linetype)

Configure a standard for each client and assign this standard to client drawings.
 When a block is inserted, Blocks Explorer .Net will use the standard associated with the current drawing to automatically place it on the correct Layer with the appropriate Color and Linetype

  User Access — assign Read, Write or Administration rights to Blocks Explorer .Net users accessing libraries through the network

  Reporter - print out the contents of your libraries

  Recycle Bin restore your deleted blocks or library folders

·      Block File Version Converter — convert your block files to any DWG version to support clients using any CAD application

Instant Access

 Screen Pick - start using a block by "Picking" it from the drawing

  Libraries — select a block by clicking on its slide image in Slide View or block record in List View

  History - Blocks Explorer .Net automatically saves references of used library blocks into your drawing history. User can view and insert blocks from another drawing history
