Q - question

Automatic line breaks at intersection points.

A - answer If you need to break lines, polylines, arcs, circles and other entities from your drawing at intersections with other entities, you can make use of the application BreakAll (BreakObjects) or QBRICK.

The LISP application BreakAll (BreakObjects) contains the commands myBreak, BreakAll, BreakwObjects, BreakObject, BreakWith, BreakTouching, BreakSelected. These commands allow to break all or selected objects at points where they are intersected or touched by other objects. The objects are breaked at the intersection points, the appearance of the drawing is not changed.

The LISP application BreakAll can be downloaded from, the ARX application QBRICK for AutoCAD version 2000 to 2008 is available here.
