    Posted: 28.Dec.2018 at 16:35
I am a beginner of AutoCAD, and currently try to make my 'block model'. Concretely, what I want to do includes:

1. Import xyz points from a spreadsheet.
2. Create a box having a point as the centroid.
3. Copy the boxes to all other points, automatically.

I know how to make a box at a point, but don't know how to copy the box automatically to multiple points (maybe by selecting?). Could you teach how to do on AutoCAD. Additionally, is it possible to code the routine on AutoLISP?

Thanks for your help!
