I was looking to schedule the insert location and rotation of a Multiview Block in AutoCAD Architecture. They have location properties for x,y,z and rotation in the Properties Palette but, strangely, rotation is not an available MV Block property when creating a property set. I tried the Block and MInsert rotation properties (both have them) but they do not report the MV Block rotation. Some Properties in ACA are linked (one value used for multiple object types) but not those.
Pondered for a bit, searched the web, surely someone in the past couple of decades had solved this before? But no…
So I posted about it on the AutoCAD Architecture Forum. Within minutes David Koch, who I have known for years via forums/blogging and met at least once at AU, replied with an elegant workaround. He used a Formula Property Set to return the correct value (converted to degrees from radians too!).
Thanks David, a great example of sharing on the community forums in action!
