Hi,

Can anybody recommend a block manager for use within ZWCAD ? I've looked through numerous websites but can't seem to find anything that intergrates and lets me create new blocks within categories and subcategories. Ideally I'd be looking for a search capability but that's not essential.

Any advice gratefully received.

Thanks in AdvanceSmile

hello, Tiger. In post, you talked about two functions of the block manager. I haven't found out some resource about that. But as for the search function in block manager, I have submitted this small feature to our R&D dept and they will consider whether and when to add it. About the Creating new blocks within categories and sub-categories, could you talked about it step by step so that we can verify whether it can be added in our block manager dialog box? Tongue

Hi Rab,

The following site probably gives a better insight as to what I'm talking about :-

http://www.cadfx.com/flash/flash.phtml?filename=blockman


Category and SubCategory are really Library and Sub Libraries, just methods of categorising blocks, so that you only need look through a smaller number of blocks. This is particularly useful if we're space planning furniture within a design.

Most block manager software that I've come across simply displays a block or a matrix of blocks, but we would like to be able to choose, between a list of Descriptions or Codes and the actual graphical block. This means that clients can actually give us the exact codes that they require and we can pull them from the block manager.

As I said in an earlier post, the ideal compliment to this would be the ability to extract a list of all the blocks used wiythin a design and the quantity present of each.

Hope that helps.... Have a good day !!SmileTiger2008-05-20 06:40:43

hello, Tiger. Thank you for all of your info! Now I fully understand your meaning. And I have forwarded these info, including the link to our R&D dept. They will consider to develop our future blocks manager towards that direction. Thanks again and if you have other resources about CAD, please share on our forum freely. Tongue
