Clipping x-refs and blocks

XCLip Command

This video shows you how to use the XCLip command to cut away a portion of a block and an xref. It demonstrates doing this with a rectangular shape, an irregular polygon, and with a curved shape.

Clipping is like cutting out part of a photograph, but in the case of BricsCAD the process can be reversed.

When blocks and/or xrefs (externally-referenced drawing files) are placed in drawings, you can have BricsCAD show a portion of them — by hiding parts through “clipping.”
