Q - question

How to add blocks to line endpoints?

A - answer The free AutoLISP utility CADstudio VerticesBlk can automatically insert a predefined block to all endpoints of selected lines and arcs and all vertices of selected polylines and 3D polylines.

Blocks can be optionally rotated to tangent direction at each vertex.

Such blocks can be then easily scheduled. You can also use this to simulate permanent grips of line reference points.
