AutoCAD. Auto Layers 2.0. Setting layers for blocks by name

An interesting idea was suggested to us on the forum - to set layers for blocks by their name. We thought and decided that it really can be convenient and can significantly speed up the work. Especially if you have to work with a large number of blocks.

Therefore, we have added such an opportunity! Meet - Auto Layers 2.0.

We have completely redesigned the plugin interface and refactoring the code. We added the setting of layers for blocks to the standard functionality and added a new functionality for setting layers for blocks by name. Now you can set one layer for all blocks or a specific layer for blocks with specific names.

Everything should be quite simple and straightforward, but we made a small video anyway:

Give it a try, leave feedback and write your ideas. Sooner or later, but we try to implement all the wishes of our users!

Internal dimensions on plan 2.0. Column dimensioning

We were repeatedly asked to make a plugin that would dimensioning the columns on the plan. Initially, we had plans to develop a large and complex plugin for dimensioning, but we decided to postpone this idea. And we added the functionality with the dimensioning of columns to the plugin Internal dimensions on plan.

Since version 2.0, the plugin now has two modes of operation:


The new mode process rectangular columns that are orthogonal to the floor plan:


Some of the dimensions in the screenshots have been moved manually, because after the plugin was running, they got on top of each other, but it's easier to move 2 dimensions than to create 22 manually!

Give it a try, share your ideas and comments. Enjoy your work with ModPlus!
