cad blocks show center point

Recommended Posts

Need help quick.

Worked with Engineer for few months on the project and submitted the plans for review. 

We got plans back with minor revision. Everything was fine before, but now when I open the cad blocks that I designed, all my holes, nails or bolts show center points or corner points, painting entire area with blue lines. What went wrong and hoe can I reverse the setting?

Need respond quick- need to resubmit next week ans still need to get engineer to sign off.

It would appear as you have Arc Centers and Ends 5972ae690e4be_ArcCentersandEndstool.JPG.87c9e19f026cdfe86e68ffbe339c51e2.JPG turned on.  Turn that off and you should be fine.

You will typically find that over on the right side in the Toggle Modes toolbar.

Wow. Thank you. It works.

Didn't even notice this. Spent a lot of time designing 20 cad blocks form engineers scratch pad and I didn't want to redo it.

Got the other day plan from landscape architect that was needing to adjust angle and was toggling between snaps and didn't even notice that I turn arc centers and ens on.

you saved may day.

Thank you

      Anybody know a good place to get complete CAD blocks for details.  Chief is limited in what they have.

      Greetings all!
      When attempting to create CAD Block that contains dimensions, I click and marquee select all the items desired in the CAD Block (photo A1). With the items selected, I click on the Create CAD Block tool. Once the CAD Block is created, the bounding box of the newly created CAD Block is tremendously larger (photo A2). This only occurs when dimensions are included. What am I missing? I am trying to save routed edge and molding profiles with dimensions to my user library to be inserted into CAD Detail windows and sent to layout as each project may require.
