Often I have a repeated piece of geometry, say a piece of a building facade, and I need to duplicate it with the same base point as a unique block.
The problem I run into is that I can explode the block and then create a new block, but I don’t remember where to place the base point. This is a problem because I need to be able to swap out the blocks with the “replaceblock” command.
I tried inserting the block I wanted to create a unique version of and utilized the same insert point when creating the second version of the block, but something was very wrong when I tried “replace block”. Maybe something to do with the CPlane, but I don’t remember what CPlane I was in when I created the first block. So, is there a better way?
