Overlapping objects

Post by Pascal » 26 Oct 2018, 14:38

Hello, is there a way to determine if objects in other layers are overlapping an object?
I need this to automatically place labels in the drawing, but they cannot overlap other objects in a certain layer.

Thanks,
Pascal

Hello Pascal,

Could you please specify for what objects you need to determine the overlapping? For example, text, rotated text, hatch, fill, etc.

Hello Mikhail, those are hatches, polylines and block references.
I need to place text above them, and if possible without overlapping.

You can download an example here: http://www.magelaan.be/media/klein.dwg
This is a street plan, you can see the streets, houses, tree's, ..
I need to draw labels (text) on specific coordinates in a new layer. But if possible, these labels cannot be on top of a house, tree, … Just to make everything more readable. I'm using the editor in CAD.NET to do this.

Maybe there's a function that can see if a label is on top of another object like a tree, house, …
If not, no problem. I'm just asking to be sure.
