Visual LISP utility breaks up multiple inserted blocks into individual block references.

Explode Minsert (Tip #2169) is also from Jeffery Sanders. Written in Visual LISP, this utility breaks up multiple inserted blocks into individual block references. Minsert is an AutoCAD command for inserting a block multiple times at specific offset locations. Once inserted, the rows and columns of the block appear in the drawing. If you need to edit just one of the blocks, you must load Jeffery's Xminsert LISP module and type Xminsert at the AutoCAD command line. Xminsert asks you to locate a Minsert object, and it creates an inserted object at each location. You can then edit the individual block insertion. This is a robust routine capable of handling attributes as well.

Jeffery also supplied a few other tips that are rather complex and better explained at his Web sites. Click here to get his program for using variables in text and attributes and here for a program to write entity data out to a file.

As a result of his above and beyond efforts, Jeffery is our first Top Tipster of 2007. Keep on programming!
