    Default Extract Blocks from a drawing file

    Hi I have created a drawing with about 60 - 70 blocks on that I will use constantly, I normally wblock the blocks to created individual drawings of each block. is there any way that I can do this with one command or do I have to do the Wblock command for every individual block

    thanking you in advance

    If you want individual drawing files of each block, I believe the answer is Yes. If you are using AutoCAD 2005 or up. You can use the Design Center to create a tool palette which would need all of those blocks in a base drawing, like you already have. You could then use the tool palette to insert your blocks into cad.
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    If you're adamant in making them into separate DWG files ... then you can use my code in this thread:

    The MWBLOCK command is what you're asking for.

    Do you have an updated version which would overwrite any existing file and hardcode the directory instead of a popup box.
