How to Parse Blocks in CADViewer

Blocks are an integral part of a DWG drawing and our CAD converter AutoXchange 2023 has the ablity to parse blocks when processing a drawing for display in CADViewer.

Process the blocks using a subset of the conversion parameters defined in:

Database Parameters
BLOCKNAME Block Name to process
BLOCKNAMELAYER Layer to get Block Names from
IA Invisible Attributes
BA Blank Attributes
BNA Block Name Attribute
IB Ignoring AutoCAD-Blocks

Apply the conversion parameters in CADViewer using:

Typically, parsing blocks should use the parameter blockname (block names) and ia (invisible attributes) to parse the relevant blocks and all attribute information associated with that block
