Using Burst To Explode a Block

I ran into a problem today and thought that I’d share it here because I found a solution.

I have a dynamic block of a door that I needed to explode and then trim. But every time I tried to explode it using the EXPLODE command, the block would disappear. I was able to successfully explode the block by using the BURST command. Even though this command is meant for blocks with attributes, it worked perfect for this problem. So if you run into this problem as well, use BURST.

(Note: The BURST command is an “Express Tool” so it is not available in AutoCAD LT)

About AutoCAD Tips

As weird as it sounds, AutoCAD is a hobby for me. But I am fortunate enough to have a career doing my hobby. I work for a large engineering firm supporting CAD users in various disciplines. My dream job would be to work for a company like Autodesk or Disney's Imagineering where inspiring others and using innovative approaches and software are adding value to projects and bringing design in all areas up to a new level. This blog serves as a repository or knowledge base for myself so that I can reference tips & tricks that I have learned and also refer others to it as well. I hope that this blog helps you learn at least one tip to make your drafting experience better.

    It worked to explode the block. But when I use quick select to count the exploded component with same layer it does not work as usually. It counts more and more. The quick select works well in other layer except the dynamic block layer. Can you help me in this case? Thank you.
