Manage New and Pre-existing Title Blocks
Title Block Manager works on block attributes (AutoCAD) or tags (MicroStation) or title block text elements (MicroStation). It doesn’t require you to create special title block fields that only it can understand. Title Block Manager dramatically cuts down the time it takes to perform mundane tasks like modifying sheet numbers or adding revision data to title blocks.
How to Renumber 279 Sheet Files in 5 Minutes
Imagine that it’s late Friday afternoon and your project is due out on Monday. Your project team spent the last few days putting the final touches on the job. All the 279 sheets have been plotted for the final check. Everything appears to be in order; the sheet files all seem to be ready and the tension is starting to ease. You decide to do one final check and — horror — discover that the sheet totals and sheet numbers are wrong. The sheet total is off by one on every sheet and every sheet number higher than 5 is off by one.
If you can modify one sheet per minute, stay on task, not get any phone calls, and not make any mistakes, then you’ll need four hours and 39 minutes just to modify the title block text on all 279 design files. Well, you could stay really late or maybe come in and work over the weekend and do all that work, but part of Axiom’s purpose is to “get you home on time”. Title Block Manager — available for MicroStation and for AutoCAD — brings this part of our purpose to life. With Title Block Manager, all the sheet files can be updated in about five minutes.
Why spend over four hours on something that can be done in a few minutes? Wouldn’t you rather use that time to play some golf, catch a movie, watch a game, read a good book, or brush up on your barbecuing skills?
