Hi

You can find a picture at the attachment. May I ask why can't I choose 'transform geometry also'? Thank you.

If i have correctly understood, its geometry which you want to copy and not blocks. If yes then you need to look for "transform geometry" in "geometry" tab and not in "blocking" tab..

I'd like to copy both the geometry and the block at the same time. I'm able to copy either block or geometry individually. But I don't know how to copy them at the same time. Like in the picture, I can't tick before 'transform geometry also'. That's my question.

From ICEM help:
Quote:
You can also use the Transform geometry also option to transform the geometry when transforming all the blocks. This option is only available when all the blocks are to be transformed.
So in this case do not select any blocking. All items (blocking + geometry) shall be transformed in specified direction and distance.
