Copy Blocking and Geomtry with Associations
Hi All,

Is there a way to copy the geometry and blocking where the block's associations stick with the copied geometry?

I copied the blocking with the geometry but the blocking was associated to the original geometry as opposed to the copied geometry.

Any help is much appreciated.

Kind Regards,

From my experience, this doesn't work very well.
BUt you can try the following option : Blocking -> Blockin Associations -> Update Associations

Problem solved!
Hi BrolY,

That worked! Thanks for your help and the quick reply.

When I copied the geometry and blocks updating the associations worked except for one face-surface association but that was easy to fix.
