AutoCAD 2023 -Export and Import Attributes


Have you ever had the need to manage the parameters in your AutoCAD blocks in Excel? For instance, you place multiple door families and then you need to add various information related to the door that you schedule later in data extraction. Entering the information door by door in the graphical user interface is laborious and is prone to human error.

Using blocks with attributes allows you to export the parameters to a text file that can be manipulated in Excel. The updated parameters can then be loaded into the blocks again. This can only be done if you have the full AutoCAD license with the express tools. Express tools are capabilities that other people programmed but that are included with the full AutoCAD license. Explore and use them to your benefit.
