How to automate deleting specific lines on multiple drawings?
We are currently working at Orascom Construction in a big project we literally have 1250+ Drawings for different buildings and support structures, I kind of made a bloody simple mistake when we were creating the first files, Now I need to delete a specific line in all of the drawings what do I do?
The OVERKILL command;
This command deletes duplicate objects and goes further to combine overlapping lines and arcs.
1)Select objects: and you can type all and press Enter to apply the command to the entire drawing. Then press Enter again to end object selection.
The Overkill window looks like this:
You might need a script, to delete the object using it’s x,y,z coordinates;
it might look like this :
open dwg1 erase x,y,z close Y
open dwg2 erase x,y,z close Y
You can use the ID command to identify the current object’s x,y,z before compiling your script
Hope this helps
