Plugin will integrate with the “Properties” palette in AutoCAD. Immediately after installing this plugin, you will see that in the properties of any object in the drawing has a new line: Name. Previously names were only blocks. And blocks names very uncomfortable to edit. Now the Name has a polylines, solids, tables and everything. And edit the name directly in the property panel. And you can edit many objects at once. The Name is just a string with any text.

What do I need it?

Originally the plugin was created for convenience of work with other plugins “Lay” and “Sawing Table” (SAW), where there is a need for naming details. But you can adapt the Names for any purpose. For example, you can specify the same name several objects and then quickly highlight them in the usual command _QSelect. Now you have a place to store any information about any AutoCAD objects.

In addition the plugin can:

- Adds to the properties of all objects 2 new text strings: Information and Kind. Just in case.

- Adds to the properties of solids two Yes/No-type properties: Sweep and Mirror. These properties use the plugins Layout (LAY) and Sawing Table (SAW), but you may use them for you own purposes.

- Add to the properties of solids new property Texture. You can set it to No or Along or Across. It usable for detail with pictured like wood fibers.

- Add to the properties of solids new section Metric with all size of solid. It is very convenient to find same size solids. Moreover, the size does not depend on how the solid deployed in space. These properties will zero while we not use commands LAY, SAW, Numbering or SolSize.

- New properties (exclude metric) are copied along with the object even if you copy to another file.

- For convenience entering a long text you can open separate panels (palettes) for the property Name, Kind and Information.


The plugin is so simple in operation that does not require any commands and configuration.

    This has helped a bunch!. Tho the only issue im having is that all i want it to show is just the Name of the part. Not 001.(name) (Size). Is there something i can unclick for it to just write the Name?

    Hello Brian, The Names plugin simply adds solid properties to the properties palette and can not do anything else. The Numbering command writes numbers to the Name property. And commands LAY, Sawing Table and Smart Leader use these properties. I guess you're asking about command LAY. In its settings (option TUne) you can turn off the numbering and configure the Title template as you like. About LAY: Numbering: Substitutions:

    This program with the combination of Sawing Table and Smart leader has turned my 3d solid geometry into smart solids. It has automated my creation of fabrication details dramatically. Great tools and looking forward to trying out all your applications.
