JTB Sheet Set Renumber for AutoCAD

JTB Sheet Set Renumber is a new app from JTB World to make life easier using AutoCAD’s Sheet Set Manager. Quickly renumber and insert total number to sheet set to show them up in fields [Sheet number]/[Total Number]

In many cases, we want to show up in our title block two fields Sheet Number / Total Number.

There is Sheet Number property in each sheet, but we have to manually edit it.

There is no Total Number property in the sheet set. We can create it as custom property, but again, we have to manually edit it.

So, this app is made to help. It assumes that sheet numbering is based on the same order of the sheets listed in your sheet set, and no sheet is excluded from the total number. Then, every time you reorder the sheets in sheet set, insert or delete sheets, run the app command "SheetSetRenumber" and all the Sheet Number, Total Number fields will be updated.

See video of usage here.

Example of before

and after deleting 1 sheet.

Free trial available at JTB Sheet Set Renumber.

JTB XClipClean 4.0.0 released

JTB XClipClean 4.0.0 has been released.

  • Upgrade from VBA to .NET improving performance and stability.
  • Remove messages about uninstallation in very-silent installation mode.

If you are using clipped xrefs or blocks you may find this app useful.

Kitchen with the xclip boundary visible

JTB XClipClean is an Xclip-cutter app for AutoCAD to clean up xrefs or blocks that been clipped so that the information that is outside the clip is removed. This is useful when you need to remove hidden geometry and minimize DWG file size.

AutoCAD allows blocks and xrefs to be clipped using the XCLIP command. Sometimes for different reasons you have to clean up the blocks or xrefs that have been clipped. JTB XClipClean can help you with that by deleting and trimming geometry that is outside the xclip boundary.

Revit does not handle xclipped blocks and xrefs so XClipClean can be useful to run on drawings before taking them into Revit.
