Import .dxf file containing Blocks


I have a file that I like to import in grasshopper but it contains blocks. I do not care about the blocks and they can be converted to mesh or other geometry too.

How can I still import the file and perhaps convert the blocks so it’s usable in grasshopper?

I am not sure on Rhino for mac, however Rhino for windows has block editing tool bar. Look for similar on your Mac. With the block editor you can explode blocks, thus turning them into curves, surfaces and poly surfaces.

Thanks for your response. Would I be able to automated this process in grasshopper then?

Hi Remy -

Currently only if you find a Grasshopper plug-in that supports blocks and also runs on the Mac.

See this:

With some minor changes (few lines of code, that is) it could do what you are after.
