how to adjust bounding box/

Recommended Posts

I have created a group of cabinets as a island then made a cad block and added it to my Library. The bounding box extends beyond the cabinets so I can not get an accurate measurement. How do I create the box so it exactly fits the island or does not impact my measurements.

      Many of these I have personally made or modified. Some of the content may have been created by others for which I will give credit. Many of the materials have free licensing, so no credit is needed. 
      Some of this content may slow down your program as I have a high powered machine and often times use complex and high resolution textures. I will try and give as much detail as possible. Use at your own peril!
       
      No but seriously dig through and enjoy, I've spent a good number of hours ensuring the quality of these symbols and will update them periodically- so CHECK BACK IN! and PLEASE GIVE A LIKE FOR THE POST OF ANY SYMBOL YOU LIKE, IT ENCOURAGES ME TO GO BACK AND REFINE/REDUCE/OPTIMIZE THAT SYMBOL. GIVE A DOWNVOTE AND IT'LL PROBABLY ENCOURAGE ME TO DO THE SAME THING...YOU'LL JUST BE A JERK FOR IT

      Is there a way to take a single polyline I have drawn and turn it into a CAD block that I can then add to the library?  I have 2D polylines that represent steel trim pieces that I often use in conjunction with 2D detail drawings and cross sections.

      So I figured out a new way to make cabinets with extended stiles that will read the proper width in schedule (that is will not include the extended stile in the width since it is an add on when ordered that way)
      The issue I'm having is getting the extended stile to show in plan as part of the symbol. I've never been really good at getting adjusting CAD blocks and making them work with a symbol.
      I've tried an assortment of ways to change the block to show as part of the symbol with no luck. Is it possible?
      Chief will not always show a cabinet door in plan to begin with, but I've tried pretty much every option without success.
      File is X10

      Hi - looked everywhere in forum etc can't find out how to edit these legends - found in library - Core Catalogs - CAD Blocks - Notes and Legends
      When I open it as a CAD block or from a plan 
      I explode the block and all of the text disappears ! The grid still shows along with all of the small CAD blocks for the symbols but I can't find the text 
      I'm sure this is some dopey thing I am not seeing
      Feeling stupid ....
      thx Otis

      I am VERY new to this program, and until a few weeks ago I was pushing a pencil around my drawing board. 
      I was watching the instructional video on creating a CAD block of the as-built drawings to be used as an overlay/mask on my plan view so I could move walls and see where the original walls were.  In creating the block, I think I did everything correct, but I accidentally clicked on exploded view of the block.  it did not seem to do anything, however when I move the block to my drawing, a few parts and pieces of the drawing are missing.
       
      is there a way to undo this error?  or, should I start over?
       
      Thank you!
