AutoCAD 2006 Exploding Blocks – not on my watch!

You thought that the greatest new Block enhancement was dynamic blocks? Here is an upgrade that will save you hours of headaches when working with folks that over use the explode command.

The BLOCK (bmake) command has been enhanced to include a couple of options that I think should have been there long before 2006.

When you decide to create a block the dialog box opens as before but there are additional items in the middle on the right side… They allow you to control the use of your block after it is added to files.

[1] The first will allow or disallow scaling item uniformly. So keeping the same aspect ratio is easier now. Just click this check box and the block will scale uniformly no matter what.

Then second is to prevent users from exploding the block. When this is unchecked, no one can accidentally explode your attributed blocks and loose data.
