Export AutoCAD Selected Elements to A Separate File
Monday 20, October 2014
Earlier this year I found a new AutoCAD command I had never used before, the wblock command. With it, you can export Selected Elements of an AutoCAD drawing to a single file, keeping the Selected Elements on the file or removing them at the moment of exporting--depending on the option you select.
Three Simple Steps
- Select elements you want into a separate DWG file.
- Run the wblock command.
- Set the options on the menu as desired--exported file path, what to do with the selected elements after they have been exported.
The command has been really useful for me when exporting portions of a CAD drawing from AutoCAD to Rhino. Hope you find it useful.
